Many of you vendors have received this email. Vendors will simply fill in by zones that are assigned to you. We will have all that clearly marked out for you the day you arrive and you will receive an email (if you haven’t already) that tells you what zone you are in. I’ll have more info on that as we get closer to the festival.
We are so very excited about this unique and fun festival and we hope you are too! We continue to plan for around 20,000 festival-goers! What a day this will be!
The Fairgrounds will open up on Friday, October 15 for you all to set up. That will become available after 9:00 a.m. and will continue until dark. Several of us will be on hand to assist you. We strongly encourage you to set up on Friday. We have hired a security firm to guard the grounds all night, so your items should be safe and sound.
Keep in mind that this is all outdoors. Due to covid, we feel it’s best that we keep as much of this festival outdoors as possible. We want all these folks coming to feel safe.
We only provide a 10×10 grassy spot, next to a gravel walkway, and 20,000 festival-goers. We will have water and snacks for you on Friday and anything else you might need. I’ll also make sure we have sunscreen, bug spray, and sanitizer. Please let me know if you might need anything else.
We ask that you not bring generators. Those tend to be so loud and obnoxious. If you absolutely need power, I might be able to help you out with that. Just let me know.
We appreciate each and every one of you. You will have first priority for next year’s festival. We have a feeling this is going to be the biggest festival in the Upper Cumberlands, not only this year, but for many years to come!
We are working closely with county fire and police, city fire and police, the rescue squad, and other planners to make sure this festival runs smoothly. I also have a stellar committee that is working so very hard. Rest assured that we are taking every precaution to keep everyone safe and to make sure folks have a good time!
