What to do the day of?

Vendors (who do not have a Dobbs store front within the Festa area on Cedar and Main Street) are asked to drive down Oak Street into the Municipal Parking lot where a card will be given to them indicating the address where they are to set up. There will be volunteers both on Main and Cedar Street to help newcomers.  Store owners who will be located in front of their stores do not need to check in.

Check in is between 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM. Vendors arriving earlier will need to wait until 11:00 AM. Vendors arriving after 12:30 PM may be restricted from driving to their location. Once you have unloaded your car, you will have to park it at the Waterfront Park at the river front where you can get a free shuttle to bring you back up into town. All cars must be off the streets by 1:00 PM. Vendors arriving after 1:00 PM cannot be guaranteed their assigned space and will have to walk their items to their location. No vehicles can enter the streets after 1:00 PM.

Vendors may leave the Festa prior to 8:00 PM, but no vehicles may reenter the streets until after 8:00 PM. All vendors and store owners need to be packed up and off the streets by 9:00 PM. The streets will then be cleaned and reopened to traffic by 10:00 PM. Restaurants are encouraged to remain open, but must have all of their equipment and patrons off of the street by 9:00 PM.

If you are a store owner and did not sign up, but decide to participate on the day of the Festa, you will be required to pay the fee plus an additional processing fee. Non-participating store owners are not restricted from remaining open during the Festa, but shall be deemed "participating" if they have any activity on the sidewalk or street during the Festa.  Store owners who are not planning on participating, are not required to pay the fee, but cannot restrict the use of the space on the sidewalk and street in front of their store by registered vendors. No vendors are permitted to interfere with the entry way to stores. We have to implement this policy to make sure that everyone who does participate in the Festa pays for this event. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
