8APPLICATION SUBMISSION: 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/exhibitor/food trucks 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.
VENDOR/EXHIBITOR HOURS: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 13 Exhibitor spaces should be attended during these hours. Food Trucks can stay for the evening concert that lasts until 10p.m. Please let us know you want to stay in the description portion of the application.
WEATHER: This is an outdoor festival and will be held regardless of weather. There will be no refunds.
BOOTH INFORMATION: Booth spaces are available on a paid-in-full and first-received basis per category of food truck. YOU MAY NOT SUBLET ANY PART OF YOUR SPACE WITHOUT EXPLICIT APPROVAL FROM THE CHAMBER. Electricity is not available.
PRODUCTS/SERVICES: Please submit full descriptions of all products to be sold. It is important that products/services are pre-approved so we can avoid placing two like products/services near each other or have an overabundance of similar products. ONLY FOOD/BEVERAGE VENDORS AND FOOD TRUCKS MAY SELL/DISTRIBUTE FOOD AND BEVERAGES. Commercial Exhibitors, Vendors/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: Set-up time will be Saturday, August 13, between 7-9 a.m.. You will be notified of your space assignment and set-up details by email one week prior to the event. Volunteers will be available if you need assistance locating your space.
PARKING: 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).
SECURITY: North Canton Police will be on-site to secure the streets and patrol overnight, as well as during the event. Neither the City of North Canton nor the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce will be held liable for loss of, or damage to, merchandise or displays.
