DIRECTIONS

CHECK-IN

Volunteers will be on site to greet you from 7 AM to 10:30 AM.  We have many vendors and exhibitors to check-in and set-up, it is imperative to keep this process moving quickly. Upon arrival, you will be asked the prescribed COVID-19 screening questions and then directed to the Marketplace area and a spot. We are unable to pre-assign booth locations, all vendors will be assigned a location upon arrival. Please follow the directions of the volunteers.

You MUST leave your vehicle behind the booth for the entire day – we cannot accommodate early departures. Vehicles will NOT be allowed to travel the Marketplace or around the fairground once the festival has opened to the public. If you are wanting a booth next to another vendor, it is essential that you arrive at the same time to facilitate this. For visitor safety, we need everyone in place by 10:30 AM. The marketplace is open to the public from 11 AM to 5 PM.

VENDOR NAME TAGS/WRISTBANDS

All vendors will receive name tags and wristbands.

Marketplace vendors with a 20′ x 20′ spot will receive TWO complimentary wristbands.
Marketplace vendors with a 20′ x 40′ spot will receive THREE complimentary wristbands.
Food Truck vendors and Liquor vendors will receive FOUR complimentary wristbands.

Should you require additional wristbands, they may be purchased upon arrival: Adult admission is $20, children 6-12 years of age is $10. Cash payment only for additional wristbands.

COVID-19

This is a COVID-19 aware event therefore we are following the rules laid out by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit which recommends wearing a face mask whenever social distancing measures cannot be maintained.
