Vending Details

Set-up and Break-down: Vendors can begin setting up their spaces at 11:00 am on Friday, and all vendors must be set up by no later than 9:00 am on Saturday. Vendors may temporarily park in the loading zone to unload merchandise, but we ask that you move your vehicle as soon as possible. Vendors may not break down their spaces before the end of the event. We are trying to get a vendor parking area for this year - stay tuned!

Event Hours: The Festival is open to the public from 9-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. Vendors should plan to remain for the entire event.

Vendor spaces: Vendor spaces are 10 foot by 10 foot. The flooring is stone dust/ gravel.  Inside booths are inside pole barns which are covered but have open sides.  Outside booths are in the open on grass and you will likely want to bring your own tent.  You will also need to bring your own tables/ chairs for your booth.  Electricity is available to inside booths - electric sockets are on hanging boxes every 12 or so feet throughout the barns.  Winds can be high at the Fairgrounds, so be prepared.  Over night you may want to throw a light blanket or tarp over your goods.

Participation: The GSSB  reserves the right to order the removal of any vendor, and their merchandise, who violates the contract or whose merchandise for sale is not that which was represented by this application, with no refund to vendor. The GSSB will not be liable for any monies or damages incurred by exercising this right.

Cancellations: Fees are non-refundable due to the large number of vendor's being coordinated and small number of volunteers handling all aspects of the Festival.   Sorry!

Security: Vendors are responsible for securing their own property during set-up and break-down. Neither the GSSB,  the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds, nor any officer, employee, agent, or volunteer thereof will be responsible for the safety of the property or the vendor from any cause.  Vendor should obtain, at their own expense, appropriate insurance to cover against said losses.  Several GSSB members and vendors camp overnight Friday and Saturday, and to our knowledge no vendor has ever experienced losses due to theft.

Insurance Coverage and Liability: Neither the GSSB,  the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds, nor any officer, employee, agent, or volunteer thereof will be responsible or liable for accidents to any vendor while on the premises or in case of fire, theft, or damage to any vendor’s equipment on the premises. Vendors must provide their own insurance coverage to protect themselves, their equipment, and to cover damages that may be inflicted to the building and/or property of the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds.

Indemnification: The Vendor agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the GSSB,  the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds, and their officers, employees, agents and volunteers, from and against any and all damages to property or injuries to or death of any person or persons, including attorneys’ fees; and shall defend, indemnify, save and hold harmless the GSSB, its officers, employees, agents and volunteers, from any and all claims, demands, suits, actions or proceedings of any kind or nature including but not by way of limitation, all civil claims, workers’ compensation claims, and all other claims resulting from or arising out of the intentional or negligent acts, errors or omissions of the Vendor, its officers, employees, agents, in any way related to Vendors duties and obligations under this Agreement and/or its use of a booth at the GSSB Sheep and Fiber Festival. All points not covered herein are subject to the decision of the GSSB Festival Committee.
