Freedom Fest Vendor Policies and Procedures

Space Sizes: Spaces will be 10’ x 10’ for the event (10’x20’ for food wagon vendors). For craft & food vendors with 10’x10’ spaces—you may bring a shade cover for your space; however, it must fit within your 10’x10’ space. If it is outside your 10’x10’ space, you will need to pay for another space or take it down. You may bring tables, chairs, decorations, etc. for your booth. You are responsible for removing/cleaning up all items at the end of the event. Food wagon vendors: your ancillary items (coolers, freezers, etc.) must fit within your 10’x20’ space. Otherwise, you must pay for an additional space. You must indicate how many spaces are needed on your registration form.

Taxes: Each vendor is responsible for determining their liability for collecting and remitting any sales tax that may be collected/required by law.

Security Policy: South Iron Community Betterment Association, County of Iron, nor the City of Annapolis shall be held liable for any property loss or damage, nor any merchandise damage or theft. No bullhorns, music or loudspeakers may be used without permission obtained prior to the event.

Space Assignments: The application and its acceptance constitute a contract to use an outdoor space. The committee reserves the right to reassign or change a space if necessary. Spaces are not transferable by vendors. First come, first served. Special needs/handicapped access will be given special consideration.

Closing Time: Vendors will be permitted to keep their shops open until approximately 4:00 p.m. on Saturday or until the crowd disperses. Please note that electricity is only available to those vendors who have signed up for electric connections.

Loading/Unloading: Absolutely NO VEHICLES are allowed on the lawn of the Community Center. Vendors may use the street and park by the sidewalk in front of the Community Center for unloading prior to 7:45 a.m. Saturday. Your vehicle must be well out of the sidewalk area PRIOR to the time indicated for unloading. You may not park on the street east of the Community Center—that street is reserved for Freedom Fest activities (Bounce House and games).

Pet Policy: Pets are not allowed in the booths at Freedom Fest. Exceptions will be made for service animals only.

Confirmation: The committee reserves the right to refuse any vendor application. Applications received without a description of merchandise to be sold will be returned. We use the description to be sure we don’t place booths with like items beside each other, and also to be sure that items sold are in accordance with policies set for our event.

Refunds: There are no refunds—the festival is held rain or shine.
