In the event that Booth Operator’s tent or any part of the booth causes damage to another vendor’s booth due to negligence on his/her part, the booth operator will be responsible for those damages. Furthermore, booth operator has read and agrees to adhere to the Vendor Rules & Regulations and requirements included in this application and understands that there are no refunds (or rain dates) once payment has been processed.
