Sales, Displays and Pricing:
We are seeking a creative and diverse array of vendor items at reasonable prices and in conjunction with a family-friendly environment. Top priority for spaces will be given to vendors whose focus is on arts and crafts. At the sole discretion of the Dysart Education Foundation, sales, displays, or activities that are deemed inappropriate and offensive will be asked to remove said items, cease such activities, or in extreme cases, be asked to leave the event if actions or sales continue. We will limit the number of same-business vendors in the festival, we will not regulate the legalities of franchise agreements of having two of the same business vendors on-site. Unless you are a registered food business (pre-packaged beef jerky, salsa, jams, etc.), no booth may sell or provide any homemade food or beverages (including water) as this is limited to our food vendors.
