you whenever you leave the festival grounds. Should you need more
stickers, please purchase them from the people at the front gate.
We have reserved a special area to the right of the main park entrance road to be
set aside for crafter/artist parking only. For security purposes, please remember
that once you have parked your vehicle in the crafter/artist parking area, you
must use the front gate entrance to gain access to the park. Please do NOT scale
the fences that surround the festival area. This compromises everyone’s safety.
►Friday Night Set up. Back by popular demand! Early set up is
available on the Friday night before the Festival (July 11th) between the
hours of 1 & 6 p.m. The crafter/artist committee will be there to meet
you at the gate. Please do not set–up until you have your packet with
your assigned area in hand.
►Surveyor flags have been used to mark off the 12 by 12 foot spaces.
►Please set up between these flags.
►Set up time is between 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and
between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday
►Only one car per crafter space is allowed to park at any one time.
►You must keep the roads clear for others to pass you while setting up.
►To minimize congestion, it is important that you unload your vehicle
and take it to the crafter parking area as soon as you are finished.
►All cars must be off of the park grounds by 9:30 a.m. on Saturday and
10:30 a.m. on Sunday.
►Coffee and Danish will be available under the pavilion each morning for
the crafters and their helpers. This is being provided by Mike Shebest
owner of The Tohickon Tavern. Donations are appreciated and will go
toward The Tinicum Civic Association.
