Terms & Conditions

Set up can begin no earlier than 3:00 p.m. Date requests will be considered on a first come, first served basis. Applying does NOT guarantee placement. Our current event budget does not allow us to pay non-mainstage event performers; however, you are welcome to place a tip jar while performing. Performance locations are not guaranteed and may be relocated as needed by HVJF. Amplification is permitted if kept at a reasonable volume. Please be considerate of the Farmers Market vendors & customers while you are performing.
