This is a new event in Fayette County, and we believe in its success but understand you may have some questions. Don’t hesitate to ask!

This event will benefit a local charity or scholarship which supports the arts to be selected by the jury. With the help of our contributors and partners, the Night Market will become a successful monthly tradition in our community.

4Where do I park if I am a vendor?

There will be an unloading area, and designated parking nearby.

5What time is set-up?

Due to the logistics of the loading/unloading zone, we require the tented vendors to arrive before the food trucks. So that Night Market personnel can assist the vendors from the parking lot to their booth spaces, we will ask that the vendors choose an arrival time. When it is time for you to do so, you will receive an email with a link that will bring you back to the website. If none of the options listed work for you, please choose "other" and explain your circumstance.

6What time is breakdown?

Events held in March and November officially end at 10pm, whereas events held in April through October officially end at 11pm. Since we are not allowed to stay overnight, you'll need to clean up immediately after.

7Do I need to have insurance?

It is advised, but not required, that you carry your own liability policy. We just want you to be protected!

8Do I need any special permits?

All vendors handling food or beverage for consumption are required to have a "Fayette County Food Serving Permit." There is an application fee of $100 that is good for 1 year. Click here to download the application. If you have additional questions, you may reach out to the County Health Inspector, Robert Kurbes, can be reached at (770) 305-5147.

All other types of vendors do not need any special permits.

9What happens if it rains?

Safety is always first.

If on the Thursday before a scheduled event, there’s a 50% or greater chance of thunderstorms for Saturday evening, event will be cancelled.

If we proceed with the event, but thunderstorms roll in and lightning is reported in the area, the event will be put on hold and patrons must seek shelter.

If 2 hours into the event, there are still reports of lightning, the event will be officially cancelled.

We expect our vendors to plan ahead and come prepared with the appropriate equipment (tents, tarps, extra weights, ropes, etc) needed to protect their items be ready to vend regardless of the weather. 

In the unlikely case where we have to cancel due to severe rain, wind, or lightning, or if the City closes the park, Night Market will forward any registration fees to a future market date. We unfortunately cannot issue any refunds.

If vendors do not want to even take the chance, they are entitled to reschedule, as long as they contact Night Market personnel more than 6 hours before the event is scheduled to begin.
