-Vendor parking is available in the large Appalachian State parking lot in front of Raley Hall. The parking lot is open to the public on weekends. Volunteers from the Summit will be on hand at the parking lot to assist you in carrying your things to the street fair area.

-Due to fire code regulations, any vendor plan using a tent for their display, the tent or the box it came in, needs to be labeled as ‘fire retardant’ and a 5# fire extinguisher must be on hand. The Fire Marshall will be conducting inspections the day of the event.
