MAYFEST ARTIST OBLIGATIONS AND AGREEMENTS
Artist agrees to submit to the selection process and accept the results as regards to acceptance into the festival and booth placement. DLP is not obligated to honor requests for physical booth location within the festival. Artist will provide own equipment, and set up to the approval of DLP.
Invited Artists will pay a $250.00 participation fee per booth space to DLP. This fee includes a 6% sales tax added to all booth fees.

A list of participating vendors from Mayfest will be forwarded to the Kentucky Department of Revenue following the event.
Although security will be provided over Friday and Saturday night, DLP is not responsible for loss, theft or damage arising as a result of the Vendor's sole discretion to leave product in the booth overnight. Booth space must be left in equal to or better condition than it was prior to the festival.
