CANCELLATION POLICY

Booth Fees:  Cancellations are difficult and we are sure that no one intentionally plans to cancel after entering into an agreement for any art festival.  However, on our end, the closer we get to the event date the more time and planning we have invested and the more difficult it becomes for us to fill your booth space with quality artists or food vendors. In many cases the individuals who could have filled your booth space are no longer available with such late notice.  For that reason we request that you respect the following dates with regards to cancellation:

Prior to April 1 Booth Fee Deadline:

April 2 to April 30, 2018:
$75.00 deduction from your booth fees
