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. Please do not setup your booth until you are sure you are in the
correct location. If you have any question where to setup please
see one of the Festival Committee members (several of us are available
to answer questions during the posted setup times). If you setup
in the wrong location you will have to move and may also impact other
vendors who have setup around you. Setup in advance of the
Festival can't be allowed unless special arrangements are made for a
Festival Committee member to meet with you to ensure you are setting up
in the correct location. There are fire lanes that have to be
observed and electrical cables run in certain locations so stakes can
not be used there. We are trying to get a vendor parking area for this year - stay
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
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!
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
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
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.

payments or access the internet.
