FESTIVAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR STALL HOLDERS
When you book a stall site, you accept that these terms and conditions apply.
SUPPLY OF POWER
All sites are unpowered unless power is requested with registration.
POWER WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE PROVIDED IF NOT REQUESTED PRIOR TO PACK IN, WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. IF YOU REQUIRE POWER FOR YOUR SITE, PLEASE INCLUDE THIS IN YOUR REGISTRATION.
If you have arranged a powered site please bring at least a 20m extension cord (without joins) that has a current Portable Appliance Test (PAT) tag. All electrical equipment used onsite needs to have current PAT tags. Please provide your own surge protection if you are plugging in sensitive electronic equipment [e.g. microwave, IPad, laptop, till, eftpos terminal, sound system, etc…]. Please ask your local electrician to ‘test and tag’ any electrical equipment you wish to use on site.
Festival management reserves the right to disallow the use of any equipment without a certificate of compliance tag or does not comply with Health and Safety requirements.
While all efforts will be made to accommodate vendor requests, final allocation of vendor sites remains at the discretion of the Festival Management.
Vendor’s displays must fit within their allocated site. If a vendor is providing their own marquee/cover, please note that all guy-ropes must stay within their allocated space, free of public walkways to prevent tripping hazards.
Vendors who exceed their allocated site will be required to move or remove items as required. If you anticipate exceeding your allocated site, please contact Festival Management to discuss.
Vendors are responsible for keeping their own site tidy, including the disposal of any rubbish created by or found at your stall.
Vendors must not leave their site unattended and are required to have adequate staffing for the safe operation of your site at all times during Festival operating hours.
You must ensure that the ground is not disturbed or dug into without the express authority of the Festival Management, and you will assume all responsibility for any damage to it.

All vehicles must move slowly when within the Festival grounds and follow the site marshals’ instructions at all times.
All vendors are asked to park their vehicles in the designated Vendor Parking Area.
The Festival Management is able to grant exceptions where vehicles are an integral part of your display (i.e. Food Trucks or Vehicle based displays.) Please note this requirement in your site registration.
No open flames are allowed, except for pre-approved BBQs in the Food Vendor Area.
Kapiti Coast District Council (KCDC) requires all stallholders to have prescribed safe food handling requirements. Note: This may mean asking the stallholder to leave the event if they are unable to meet these requirements on the day.
