Set-Up will take place from 7:30am to 9:00am. There will be a drop off area in front of the field house, which is wheelchair accessible. Crafters are then requested to remove their cars to the specific parking area in order to provide maximum amount of parking in front of facility for customers. Assignment of spaces in the hall will be made according to the crafts being sold and needs. We will attempt to place people in such a way that artisans will not be selling the same craft side by side. Assignments will be given at the registration table the day of the fair. Table requests can not be guaranteed.
Care of the Premises: No part of your exhibit may be nailed, pasted or affixed to the wall in such a way as to damage the facility. A covering is being placed over the special athletic floor in order to prevent such damage. Please avoid eating in the hall if possible. Crafters will be the only people allowed to eat in the hall at their exhibit, if they do not have relief coverage for their display. It is against city and fire department regulations to smoke in this public facility.
Crafters must not remove their items from display before fair closes at 3:00pm. If this occurs, future invitations to this fair will not be extended.
Advertising: Extensive advertising will be done in order to make this a successful fair for both you and our organization. We will promote the fair in local newspapers, Boston papers, fliers, cable television, and banners in high traffic areas.
Hourly Door Prizes: Given away free. Free raffle tickets given to every person walking through the door.
Free Raffle to Buyers of your Craft: A free raffle will be held for customers who make purchases from you. They will be given one free raffle ticket for each item purchased. We do everything possible to encourage people to spend their money!
