  • To keep with code hand washing stations are encouraged, especially if you are not operating in front of a downtown store front that is open. (These can be as simple as a jerry can with a spigot set up next to your work station).

  • Booth sizes for vendors that are outside of downtown can run from 10'x10' up to 10'x20' and will be placed at the discretion of the BCD Promotion Committee. 

  • Please provide napkins and garbage cans for your booth.

  • Set-Up one hour before or at the direction of the BCD Promotions committee if more time is needed. We realize that certain vendors may need more time than others to prep their station. 

  • Liquor: any vendors not directly in front of their store front will have to have a valid TUAL (Temporary Use of Alcohol License) to charge for tastes of liquor

  • Wooden tokens will be collected the night of the event. Please do not leave the event without turning your tokens in!
