It is the right of the Town of Holly Springs to determine if the services provided by the sponsor reflect the original intention of the event and add to the overall quality of the festival. No sponsor will be allowed to set up without the Sponsor Interest Form and Liability Release form signed and dated. Please make copies of this form for your own records.

Event Check-In and Setup

Vendor check-in is 6:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. the morning of the event. Vendors are allowed to drive onto the event field to unload supplies, but all vehicles must be cleared from the event field by 9 a.m. Any vendors arriving after 9 a.m. will be required to park and carry supplies from the parking area to their assigned booth space. Displays must be completed, and aisles cleaned by 9:30 a.m. regardless of arrival time, so please come early. You may experience some wait time when checking in so be prepared and allow plenty of time for traffic.

Booth spaces are 10' X 10'. All sponsors and vendors, unless items are included in their sponsorship package, must furnish their own display equipment and provide the necessary protection from the elements. Sandbags, tent pegs, or other tent weights are required. Each sponsor or vendor must stay in his/her assigned booth space. No signage, advertising, or selling can be done outside of this space. All displays are to be in good taste, neat and maintain a professional appearance. No canopies, tables, or chairs will be provided.
