This is a difficult task due to the numerous inquiries. We're providing a variety of sutler/vendor types and limiting the number of sutlers to 25 maximum. Sutler registration is by invitation only.
The registration fee for the event is a flat fee per tent regardless of actual canvas size. However, you need to provide us with your canvas measurements including your ropes. Applications submitted without both measurements will be rejected.
Your tent site will be pre-determined, in a visible location, and marked prior to your arrival. No changes will be allowed, and no refunds will be made once your application has been accepted.
Sutlers are required to check-in with the Sutler Coordinator upon arrival to the site. Sutlers are requested to be open for business at the suggested hours listed below. Please plan to be operational no later than 9 AM Friday morning. Sutlers are welcome to open for business on Thursday
9 AM – 7 PM Friday and Saturday, you may be open earlier or later in the day.

Open fires are not allowed in the sutler area. A fire extinguisher must be present in tent at all times. Someone will be around to check your sutlery for the fire extinguisher.
Vendors are responsible for maintaining all garbage in a discreet, neat and organized manner until picked up throughout the day. Please bring your own trash bags.

In fairness to those who do comply, inspections for compliance to the above criteria will be conducted throughout the event.
