We want to ensure the safety of our guests and vendors and take sanitation and health very seriously.

In an effort to be a green event and to be globally conscious of our environmental impact as a community we ask vendors to be conscious of their setup.

We recommend non vinyl banners, printing done with environmentally friendly inks, upcycled displays, limiting the use of paper products like business cards and receipts and to work to use more digital receipts and virtual cards.

We also ask that our vendors and patrons try to be conscious of our separate trash, recycle and compost bins and to be as thoughtful as possible about properly disposing of their waste.
