HOURS: Vendors must be completely set up by 11:30 a.m. and continue to sell until the end of the concert, approximately 9:00 p.m. Vendors may begin set-up at 8:00 a.m., not earlier, unless
previous arrangements have been made. Early tear down/departure is not permitted under any circumstances. Absolutely NO vehicles are permitted on Food Vendor Row, for ANY reason until the concert is totally over.

bordering the park unless advance arrangements have been made. Parking for food & beverage vendor vehicles will be available in the Highlights for Children parking lot on Court Street
between 8th & 9th Streets.

TENTS: Tents are not required (and are not supplied) but are highly recommended. All tents must be free standing (EZ-up style) and weighted suffciently to prevent being blown away in the event of
wind. Event is RAIN or SHINE. All tables and chairs brought by the vendor must ft within the space that they have rented and paid for. You areNOT permitted to use the park for extra seating.

TRASH: As we are a zero waste event, there are collection containers throughout food row for disposing of food waste/compostables, recyclables, and trash/landfill. If you would like to collect your food scraps in a separate pail during the event, we will take it at the end of the event and add it to the food waste collected from the festival goers for composting purposes. In addition, you are welcome to dispose of your recyclables and trash/landfill materials at one of the stations set up in food row, yet if you choose not to sort, you will be responsible for disposing of your own mixed waste at the end of the day. Borough and park trash cans are not to be used for this purpose. You are responsible for bringing home all spent cooking fuels.

Last year we had several mixed bags of waste left behind by some of the food vendors. This creates unnecessary work for our Sustainability Team and is unacceptable. Any vendor caught littering or leaving their waste behind will be fined by Honesdale Borough and not invited back for future festivals.

SAFETY & SANITATION: Food Inspection Codes require that all food vendors have a hand washing station in order to maintain
sanitary food service. All food vendors are required to have a working ABC fire extinguisher, 5 lbs or larger, regardless of the type of food you are vending. Booths will be inspected prior to the start of the
