Everyone must have their own pop up canopy tent. There is no color requirement. Your tent should look professional and in good working order. It must be sturdy enough to hold at least 35lbs of weight on each leg of the tent. Typical backyard, tailgating tents are not sturdy enough and often buckle and collapse with significant weight applied to them or any wind.
IMPORTANT* All tents MUST be weighted down after set up to withstand 40 MPH gusts, no exceptions. Tying to your neighbors’ tent to secure yours is not allowed. 1 Gal milk or water jugs are not allowed. An unsecured (No weights) tent is a potential liability if it flies away and hits an event goer or another exhibitor /vendor. Even if you stake in to the ground, you must have sufficient weight on each tent leg to withstand 40 MPH gusts. It is mandatory that you have at least 35lbs of weight on each leg or suspended from each corner of the tent. We will be checking every single tent on Saturday morning to ensure all are secure with a weighting system. If yours is un-secure you will be asked to lower your tent until you can secure it with weights, please comply and thank you for adhering to this important tent safety matter. We are saying all this from experience, it’s not fun watching a tent roll through a crowd of people! Remember, you are responsible for what your tent does at an event, i.e injuring people or property. Latitude-88, Inc. assumes no responsibility for your tent causing injury or harm due to your negligence of not securing your tent in the manner discussed above. There are no refunds if you are not allowed to stay set up for being non-compliant with weights.

We will be checking every tent on Friday and Saturday morning. If you do not have your tent weighted, you will be advised to go get them at a local store or break down your tent. NO REFUNDS will be given for unsecured tents that are told to break down.
NOTE: We encourage you to obtain vendor liability insurance for your products and equipment while at this event but it is not required. Note: Latitude-88, Inc. is not responsible for loss of vendor products or equipment and does not provide liability insurance to cover your products and equipment. For example, If weather damages or destroys your products or equipment, your own event liability insurance can help you recover. Here is an example option for vendor liability insurance: https://www.rvnuccio.com/
