Participants have access to one (1) off-site parking space per booth. Please adhere to this. Parking passes are allocated upon arrival by the Market Coordinator. Non-compliance will be noted for future reference. Remember, the object is to bring customers closer to you! Handicapped parking spaces are extremely limited near the site. Please indicate on your application if you require handicapped parking. Every effort will be made to accommodate your parking needs.
Artisan vendor exhibition spaces are 10 x 10 in size. Artisan vendors are responsible for their own canopy or cover which cannot display unrelated commercial advertising. Please notify the Market Coordinator of any size variance as this may effect vendor placement. Also, 6′ tables may be pre-ordered on your application at a rental charge of $10.00 each for all three days of the festival.
- Site Assignment
Placement of Artisan vendors on site will be determined solely at the discretion of the Market Coordinator. Please keep in mind that this is an outdoor site and be prepared for uneven ground, slopes, trees, wet grounds, and pavement in some cases. The Festival sometimes experiences strong winds, so be sure your canopy is weighted down. If you indicate any restrictions imposed by your booth design, an attempt will be made to accommodate your request. The Stewart Park Festival does not guarantee returning Artisan vendors will have the same site as in previous years. A map of the Festival Marketplace and its vendors will be available to Festival goers.
The vendor fees for Artisan vendors are listed on the Artisan Vendors Instructions. The fee covers all three days of the Festival. Additional fees may be applied for larger units.
Once accepted as a vendor, you are required to show proof of $2 million liability insurance. You must provide the Festival with an insurance certificate issued by your insurance company, listing the following as additional insured: The Town of Perth, Downtown Heritage Perth Business Improvement Area, and Stewart Park Festival. You will also need to make sure the date of the Festival is listed as July 17th to the 19th, 2020. Please list your limits of liability (CGL), and include a 30-day notice of cancellation clause. All details are necessary for completion. Festival Insurance is available through the Town of Perth (ToP). Please indicate your interest in purchasing the ToP insurance on your application form.
