FINANCES & FEES
Choice FM, will not accept the responsibility for any financial commitments and/or obligations undertaken by an individual organization.
ALL TENTS MUST BE SECURED AND WEIGHTED DOWN WITH A MINIMUM OF 30lb WEIGHTS ON ALL FOUR CORNERS. The tent should be secure enough to withstand any thunderstorms that are not uncommon for Spring in central or Eastern NC.
Each exhibitor is assigned a set up time to prevent congestion in the festival area.
Exhibitors agree to park in the approved exhibitor parking area.
In order to have a successful set up for all exhibitors it is important to adhere to the arrival times and have all information ready available upon arrival. There will be additional festival vehicles and vendors who are arriving for set up around the same time as the craft vendors. Exhibitors who arrive late should be aware that the festival area is closed to all vehicles at a designated time.
If Vendors arrive after the event area is closed to vehicle traffic, exhibitors will have to park outside festival grounds and carry/cart materials to their assigned space.
Upon arrival to the festival area exhibitors will be asked the booth number and then you will be directed to the booth location. Be prepared to unload all materials/supplies that are needed to set up the booth.
All Vendors should be prepared and ready for public viewing/serving:
Saturday May 27, 2023 by 1:00 p.m.
During breakdown, which will occur on Saturday, May 27, 2023, after 6pm, exhibitors by chance may not be able to park their vehicle right next to their booth space. Every attempt is made so exhibitors can get as close as they can to their booth space to load their vehicle.
Parking is allowed on the LEC lot. We recommend arriving early to unload your booth items and then parking your car ASAP to ensure you have a parking space close to the festival. Please see parking map on website for festival parking areas.
Vendor will be asked to park their vehicles in a special exhibitor area of the parking lot or off festival grounds for larger vehicles once all materials are unloaded.
If a vehicle is needed for refrigeration or storage and additional fee of $50 will be required.
Parking is within walking distance. Exhibitors can then return to their booth to continue set up their booth.

Exhibitors are to be fully prepared to protect against adverse conditions, such as rain, wind, sun, heat, etc. If severe weather conditions persist, i.e., thunderstorm/ lightning, the Festival will temporarily close down and then reopen.
Vehicles will not be allowed in the Festival area during cloudbursts - please be prepared to protect your merchandise. Vendors are expected to reopen their booths as soon as possible once the weather has cleared and the Festival reopens. No refunds will be issued for inclement weather.
