Festival operations

HOURS
Friday, June 7, 4 pm-10 pm
Saturday, June 8, 11 am-10 pm

​Blue Plum Festival is an outdoor festival and will proceed rain or shine. Exhibitors are responsible for their own protection from the elements. All tents must be secured in case of wind with 40-pound weights at each corner. Staking into the ground is not permitted. No wooden structures are allowed. Prior to the start of the festival, the Johnson City Fire Department will complete inspections to ensure that each tent is properly secured. We ask that at least one person per tent be present for these inspections, but if you are unable to be there, please ensure that your tent is staked properly and the fire department can access your space for inspections.
 
All booths shall be ready for business one hour before festival hours and remain open until at least 5 pm both days. Be prepared to stay late as past years have shown very good traffic in the evening hours. Failure to adhere to operation hours without committee approval will result in an immediate warning and possible exclusion from future festivals.

For the safety of attendees, staff, and private property, absolutely no vendor vehicles will be allowed in the festival footprint between 10 am on Friday and 11:59 pm Saturday.


There is no reserved vendor parking lot, and illegal parking can result in towing. A parking map will be provided with your confirmation packet. 

All exhibitor activity must be conducted within the assigned space ONLY. Sidewalks must remain unobstructed at all times, per the Johnson City Fire Code. Failure to comply will result in an immediate warning and possible exclusion from Blue Plum Festivals.
 
The exhibitor shall comply with all laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations of any and all lawful authority, agency, or governmental units which apply to the City of Johnson City. The exhibitor agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Blue Plum Festival, the Blue Plum Organization, the City of Johnson City, their officers, directors, representatives, employees, and agents for any penalties, fines costs, expenses, or damages from participating exhibitors' failure to comply with such laws. 

 

All committee decisions are final.
