•  Submit applications early to reserve an exhibitor space. For new vendors verify that all required product photos or links to website or FaceBook product pages are emailed to rivahfest@gmail.com. Earlier registration will also ensure exhibitor listing on website and in festival program.

•  To create diversity among exhibitors, a limited number of spaces will be available in any designated category. That category will be closed once it reaches the limit. Spaces are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and your pre-assigned space will be provided at check-in.

•  Set-up begins at 7 am and show begins at 10 am. Exhibitor must provide tents, tables, coverings, chairs, etc. No trailers/vehicles may be used for display of wares in the arts/crafts area; however, they may be used in the Merchant Market area, given that it is part of the display AND that you have cleared it through the MM chairman ahead of time.

•  This is a closed street festival with no vehicle traffic allowed. Show attendees will walk in or be shuttled. Heavy or bulky items may present a challenge for customers to carry away.

Failure to comply with this rule will render you ineligible for all future RivahFest events.
