Booth Set-up on Saturday August 31st:

• Water Street in Eastport provides little shelter from the sun and rain, so we require that exhibitors provide their own tents.

• There is no staking of tents on the blacktop area. Tents must be secured with weights.

• Set up must be completed by 10:00 AM and vehicles removed from the festival area on Water St. to nearby parking lots.

Booth Take-down on Sunday September 1st:

• The exhibitor is responsible for leaving the site as it was found.
