4.  Each artist must provide a table, chairs, and any other materials necessary for display.

TENTS
We must keep the center of the street free of obstructions for emergency vehicle access. Booths may not extend more than eight feet from the curb line into the center of South Allen Street. We will be able to accommodate a limited number of 10’ by 10’ tents, as long as they do not extend more than eight feet into the street. In other words, the rear tent legs will have to be placed on the sidewalk or grass behind the booth.

Ten by ten tents will not fit in certain spots because there are obstructions, such as street lights, signs, and trees, which prevent a tent from being moved back the required two feet. Accordingly, please indicate on your application if you intend to bring a ten by ten tent.
