Checking In & Unloading (MUST READ)
Vendors will NOT be able to drive-up to their booth locations. Please be prepared with your own cart, wagon or dolly and extra help. You may park in the upper parking lot to unload your car. You will have to transport your merchandise from your car to your booth space. There is a steep ramp to come down, and it is a bit of a ways from the ramp around the building to the garage. It will take extra time. Please plan ahead. Everything takes longer at this venue. This added element has been a challenge in prior years. Plan on needing extra support. It is what makes the Underground Holiday market so unique.
Parking during the event:
Once you have unloaded, we will ask that you re-park your car. You may want to plan on arranging a ride. The parking and getting back to the garage will also take time.
Cars must be moved from the upper parking lot by 9.00am. The upper parking lot will be for guests needing extra assistance.
We do not provide any tables, chairs, or tents for this event. There is no power provided. Please be sure to bring your own portable power source if you need one (example here). Bring your own hotspot and POS systems.
There are no walls/partitions between the booths.
Lighting - The lights in the parking garage are LED. We will have some additional festive lighting. If your products need extra lights you will need to provide that on your own. There is no power on site.
Heating - There will not be heaters. You may go inside the main building to warm up. We encourage you to bring extra layers to keep warm. Plan on dressing for the weather. You will be outside for more than 7 hours.
