General Info

Checking In & Unloading (MUST READ)

 

Vendors will NOT be able to drive-up to their booth locations (so please be prepared with your own cart). You may park in the upper parking lot and unload your car. There is a steep ramp and also stairs to use to unload/load. You will have to transport your merchandise. It will take extra time. Please plan ahead. This added element has been a challenge in prior years. Plan on needing extra support. It is what makes the Under Ground Holiday market so unique. 

Parking during the event:

 

Once you have unloaded, we ask that you park your car and move to the parking lot across the road at Walgreens. 

 

Cars must be moved from the upper parking lot by 9.00am. This upper parking lot will be for guests needing extra assistance.
