Event Check In and Setup

Vendor check in is 6:30-9 a.m. the morning of the event.

Each vendor must stay in his/her assigned booth space. No signage, advertising, or selling can be done outside of this space. All displays are to be in good taste, neat and maintain a professional appearance. No canopies, tables, or chairs will be provided. Electricity is only available for concessionaires with a separate fee. Water or sewer disposal is not available. The Town of Holly Springs will determine the placement of booths and vendors. Under no circumstance can a vendor “sublet,” transfer, or give their space assignment to anyone without written approval by the Holly Springs Marketing and Special Events Coordinator.
