When will I know I am approved?
You will be notified of your application status within 24-48 business hours of your submitted application (Monday through Friday).
There are a limited number of spaces but we have to pay a vending fee up front - if our applications do not make the cut, do we receive a full refund aside from the $10 application fee?
We are not permitted to leave the event and if we do, we may be subject to a fine. Does this mean we aren’t able to leave the overall venue or our display area?
With the event being 6-9 hours of the day - do you have any rules or procedures for lunch breaks and eating? I know with Covid and social distancing - a lot of people are rightfully creating new systems for things like that.
Do you have any payment plans for the vendor fees? If so, what are the plans available?
