Eligibility and Rules  
All applications will be reviewed and must be approved by the LocalMotion Arts Festival Committee. The submission of an application does not guarantee a food booth space. The Festival Committee reserves the right to limit the number of food booths and the items sold out of each food booth.  No alcoholic beverages can be sold from our food vendors. Beer and wine will be sold at the event through a permitted distributor.

All applications will be reviewed by the Committee, and you will be notified of your acceptance no later than August 15, 2018. There will be a limited amount of space. All applicants will be notified as to the status of their application.  If your application is not accepted for whatever reason, the application fee will be returned.

All booth spaces are assigned prior to the event. Vendors are responsible for bringing set-ups, tent, chairs, etc. There will be no rain date, and no refunds given for cancellations. Vendors are encouraged to provide protection against inclement weather. Electricity is limited to inside the park. Please specify within the application if you need electricity.

About the two festival areas:

– The Artist Walk: These booths are scheduled to run from 11 am – 7 pm and will require vendors to tear down by 8:00 pm to allow for the main music event to take place and to account for the setting sun, unless specifically noted. This area is located on the two city streets that surround the park (South Central Ave and Atlanta Avenue). Only select food vendors will be in the Artist Walk area.

– Inside the Park: MOST Food vendors will be inside the park to maximize their exposure throughout the day and into the evening. The festival is officially from 11 am – 10 pm. It will be a long day, but we believe a very fun and rewarding day. Starting after 7:00 pm and running until around 10 pm the festival will morph into more of a Music event with several larger acts expected to play. All food trucks will be inside the park within the paved parking lot. See this map for details. Those food vendors with tents will be near the food trucks on grass near the gravel path that meanders through the park. Electrical can be provided to by request only. Jess Lucas Park is a beautiful tree-lined park that is mostly level, with some roots from the 100+year-old oak trees that surround it. You will not be allowed to tear down until after the festival is over. At the close of the festival, the parking lot will open up to allow vendors to pull in and tear down. No vehicles are allowed on the grass. Also, no spikes will be allowed to hold down your tent. Please use weights.

• Food Vendor Fees:  $200.00 per 10 x10 Booth or Food Truck

Beverages: All vendors are required to sell at least water, but are encouraged to sell a variety of non-alcoholic beverages. Beer Girl Growlers & Bottleshop is our official alcoholic beverage sponsor. Food vendors are not allowed to sell alcoholic drinks of any kind.

Clean Up: All vendors must keep their space neat and presentable during the festival and clean up area after closing. Vendors must provide their own sturdy garbage bags with ties. Please break down all cardboard and place next to dumpster and put tied/secured garbage in dumpster.
