    I applied to be a vendor. I’m waiting for instructions for set up the day of the festival. When would that be and who is the contact person?

      Kerri from Artstitution is handling the Vendors. Did you get an email about the possible rain date? We will make the call and She will also send the map tomorrow.

    Good morning! My name is Hernando Rico and I’m a Market Manager for T-Mobile in Central NJ. My team and I are interested in attending your event as a vendor. We have a 10×10 Tent/table to use and wanted to see if that was acceptable for your event. In addition we’ll have T-Mobile giveaways for all guests that day along with employees on site to support any T-Mobile existing customer or potentially new customers that would want to make the jump to our service. Please let me know if there’s anything else you need from me. Looking forward to your response!

    Yes you can print the vendor forma and bring it and also pay the $100 vendor fee online and I will put you on the list. It looks like it may rain Saturday. If so, can you do the rain date on Sunday? We will make the call tomorrow.
