BUSINESS BOOTH DESCRIPTION
(10′ x 10′ or 10′ x 20′ Area)
The Wing and Rock Festival is a 2- day community event; as such, booth space is available to community groups, organizations and vendors for the purpose of informing attendees about their businesses, organizations or services (Please note that political groups/organizations, political candidates, and religious groups/organizations are EXCLUDED from having a booth.)
All business booth applications will be first come – first served. To guarantee a space for this year’s festival you complete the application and have payment in full. (No later than Feb. 1st) If you are accepted into the show and you display/sell any items that are not acceptable by the Festival, the exhibitor will be asked to remove the items from their booth. Exhibitors are selected from submitted applications and researched prior to approval. Printing, t-shirts, specialty drink/food services, news papers, sunglasses, and any item NOT HAND MADE are considered business booths (See Application). Event producers will do their best not to duplicate vendors. Organizations may choose to distribute giveaway, sell wares or have games and activities for festival attendees in the assigned booth space only. Georgia PEC, LLC and Armus Media Group, LLC reserves the right to define a business booth and ALL applicants will be reviewed. Failure on the part of any booth vendor and/or the booth vendor’s staff to adhere to the rules and policies will result in removal, forfeiture of fees and inability to return to for future festivals.

During breakdown, which will occur on Sunday at the specified time, exhibitors by chance may not be able to park their vehicle right next to their booth space. Every attempt is made so exhibitors can get as close as they can to their booth space to load their vehicle. A handcart is recommended to assist exhibitors.
Each exhibitor is assigned a set up time to prevent congestion on the festival streets. Included with the exhibitor acceptance package a specific set up time is given along with one parking permit. In order to have a successful set up for all exhibitors it is important to adhere to the arrival times and have all information ready available upon arrival. There will be additional festival vehicles and vendors who are arriving for set up around the same time as the craft vendors. Exhibitors who arrive late should be aware that the festival streets are closed to all vehicles at a designated time.
If exhibitors arrive after the streets are closed to vehicle traffic, exhibitors will have to park outside festival grounds and carry/cart materials to their assigned space. Upon arrival to the festival area exhibitors will be asked the booth number and then you will be directed to the booth location. Be prepared to unload all materials/supplies that are needed to set up the booth. Exhibitors will be asked to park their vehicles off festival grounds once all materials are unloaded. Festival marshals will assist in directing exhibitors where to park. Parking is within walking distance. Exhibitors then return to their booth to continue set up of their craft booth. Generator power WILL NOT be available overnight.
Exhibitors are to be prepared to have their exhibit ready for public viewing/shopping:
Saturday by 10:00 a.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Parking is not allowed in the Festival area. We recommend arriving early to unload your booth items and then parking your car ASAP to ensure you have a parking space close to the festival.
