No purchased, commercial or buy-sell products will be allowed. If you do not meet this criteria but are still interested in participating, email crafts@edisonfestival.org for sponsor pricing.
3. Requests for specific space locations will be reviewed but NOT GUARANTEED. Due to downtown construction, location of event is subject to shifting in the park and we cannot guarantee space. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED DAY OF EVENT.

17A. A 2A10BC dry chemical fire extinguisher is needed for tents that have generators to cook.
