Conditions of Agreement
ACTS OF GOD: Fort Clark Springs and Fort Clark DaysCommittee are not responsible for inclement weather. This is a rain or shine festival, no rain dates are scheduled. However, should the festival be cancelled by the Fort Clark Days Committee, all fees paid by you will be returned.
ALCHOLIC BEVERAGES AND SMOKING: No alcoholic beverages may be consumed by the vendor or their workers during their working hours. No smoking is allowed within buildings.
ASSUMPTION OF RESPONSIBILITY: All persons, companies or organizations renting booth/concession space do so as independent contractors and not as employees or agents of the Festival or its management.

You will be required to sign a "Hold Harmless Agreement".
BOOTH MANNING: Vendors shall have at least one person manning the booth at all times. Solo booth operators may only leave their booth to use the restroom and should make every effort to have someone "watch" their booth while away. Abuse of this rule will result in removal of your booth and forfeiture of your fees.
DELIVERIES: Vendor may receive deliveries during FCD hours. Contact Food Vendor Coordinator to get deliveries to your booth.
FIRE EXTINGUISHERS: Every food booth should have a fire extinguisher designed for electrical fires and if the booth is preparing or heating food it must also have a fire extinguisher designed for grease fires. You must provide all proper extinguishers.

LOCATION and PAYMENT OF VENDOR SPACE: Priority in location shall be given to those vendors in the order they return online application form with appropriate space fees.

Payment for space must be made online or by check to reserve location.
MONIES: It is the responsibility of the vendor to collect for services provided and maintain his own cash box.
