Festival Assistance and Amenities
Several food vendors have been invited; food vendors will be listed on the festival website once they are determined.
FFA members will be available to pick up food orders and bring food to you in your booth, if desired. We will provide menus for the food orders so that you can give the FFA members exact change.
FFA members will be on-site early Saturday morning to help take down tent sides, help with booth setup, etc. Vendors are responsible for re-hanging tent sides Saturday evening near their booth(s).
The campground does have WIFI, however; during busy times at the festival this WIFI may become slow or stop working all together. Having additional means of internet service is recommended (e.g., jet pack). The WIFI password will be shared with you upon check-in at the festival.
Restrooms are available for Vendor personnel; do not share the bathroom access codes with anyone that is not a Vendor. The restroom passcodes will be shared with you upon check-in at the festival.
There is parking at the campground for vendor vehicles and trailers; some of this space is limited. The Festival Committee will do their best to ensure sufficient parking but it may not be near the booth tents during the festival.
Vehicles cannot be in the festival area 30 minutes prior to opening (Saturday and Sunday) and 30 minutes after closing (Saturday and Sunday) for the safety of festival attendees and vendors.
While we do our best to put returning Vendors in the same location as the previous year this is not guaranteed. As the festival layout and Vendors shift there may be a need to move booth locations around. The same is true of multiple booth space requests. You will be notified of your booth space once registration is finalized.
Booth setup can begin on Friday, June 9 th . Vendors must be setup by 9:30 AM on Saturday morning.
CNY Festival Committee members will be on-site for check-in from 12 PM – 8 PM on Friday, all day Saturday, and Sunday. Check-in is at the front of Tent A. Each Vendor must check in no later than 9:30 AM on Saturday morning.
Vendors cannot close or begin to shut down their booth(s) until after 4 PM each day of the festival.
Booth materials, personnel, signage, etc. cannot extend outside the boundaries of the assigned booth space. The standard booth is 10’x10’.
