Craft requirement: our craft fair is for handmade (by you) items only. No resale, used or consignment items may be sold on our premises.
Food: breakfast pastries, coffee and lunch are sold in our cafeteria, with proceeds going to the music program. We have no outside food trucks or kiosks.
Parking: free, on the premises. We ask crafters to leave spaces near the entrance for our customers. There is a limited amount of space inside the fence for crafter parking also.
