Deadline (with payment in full) is Wednesday, July 20. No applications will be accepted after this date. The chamber reserves the right to limit the number of vendors per category. Submission of application does not guarantee a space. The final determination on all vendor space s will be made by the Main Street Festival committee. If you are not accepted into the festival, your full application fee will be refunded to you. You will be notified by email of the committee’s acceptance/rejection of your application.
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday August 12, 2023.
Exhibitor spaces must be attended during these hours.
The is an outdoor festival and will be held regardless of weather. There will be no refunds.
Booth spaces are available on a paid-in-full and first received basis.
Vendors/Exhibitors must provide their own EZ Ups, canopies, tables, chairs, displays, screens, backdrops, etc.
All spaces are 10×10. No part of your display/product may protrude beyond your 10×10 allotted space.
Winds and rain can impact the canopy or EZ Up, so plan accordingly. Sand buckets, water buckets, or weights must be used to secure the tent to resist the winds. Stakes may not be used on the streets or sidewalks.
YOU MAY NOT SUBLET ANY PART OF YOUR SPACE WITHOUT EXPLICIT APPROVAL FROM THE CHAMBER.
Please submit full descriptions of all the products/services to be sold and/or advertised. This applies to both new and returning participants. It is important that product/services are pre-approved so we can avoid placing two like products/services near each other or have an abundance of similar products/services in the mix. ONLY CONCESSION VENDORS AND FOOD TRUCKS SELL/DISTRIBUTE FOOD AND BEVERAGES. Commercial Exhibitors, Artisan Vendor/Exhibitors and Non-Profit/Political booths may not sell or freely distribute any food or beverages, including bottled water. This would place you in competition with the food vendors, who pay a higher fee for the privilege of providing food and beverages, and who are licensed and inspected by the Stark County Health Department.
Set-up instructions will be sent via email.
Since vendors are the first to arrive and the last to leave the event, parking should not be a problem. There will be on-street parking and parking lots available (if the businesses are not open).
North Canton Police will be on-site to secure the streets during set up and the event. The City of North Canton and the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce will not be held liable for the loss of, or damage to, merchandise or displays.
