Bethesda Row Arts Festival 2018 Agreement

I have read the application instructions and agree to abide by the rules and the terms set forth in this application. I assume all responsibility for my products and for safeguarding my display. Should the festival close during the designated operating hours due to inclement weather or for any other reason (including security concerns) at the sole discretion of Festival Management, I hereby agree to strictly adhere to the direction of Festival Management. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless Federal Realty Investment Trust, Bethesda Row, Street Retail Inc., Montgomery County, MD, and Deutsch, Inc., DTA Global for any damage, loss or injury resulting from my participation in this event. I agree to accept all decisions of the jury as final. I agree to allow the Bethesda Row Arts Festival use of images & other promotional materials (including photographs and videotapes) taken during the festival for purposes of promoting the festival in this and future years. I agree that the digital images submitted are representative of my work. Festival Management reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to advise me of any work that does not meet the standards set forth, and I agree that such work will be immediately removed upon request by Festival Management, and it’s officials associated with the event. Failure to remove such work upon request, to cooperate with Festival Staff or to comply with the Festival rules may result in my removal from the Festival and/or my being prohibited from future participation. I understand that Festival Management reserves the right to revise these regulations and/or terminate this agreement at its sole discretion.

Artists must personally attend their booth for the duration of the festival. Because of the possibility of rainstorms, Festival Management has the right to close the Festival early on either exhibiting day, if necessary. A weather watch will be in place and staff will inform artists of any impending storm. Artists are not permitted to leave the festival early unless directed by Festival Management show organizers. Artists who do so risk not being invited back.
