Failure to comply with these rules will result in the vendor being asked to remove the animal from the grounds without the vendor breaking down.

Pop-ups must have all modern-looking metal, inside and out, covered with fabric or other covering. FOOD TRUCKS need to plan on setting up a tent in front of their windows to serve out of that is decorated appropriately. A photo of your booth for first-time applicants must accompany this application. MME is the final judge of appropriateness. Each tent/pop-up booth must have 40 LBS of weight PER CORNER securely attached. Booth corners will then need to be anchored to these weights. Corners also need to be staked (carefully to avoid sprinkler lines and heads) and secured into the ground with 8–10-inch heavy-duty metal stakes (rebar and steel stakes are ideal) and properly guy wired with paracord, hemp, or cotton rope, and same style metal stakes. Lag Bolts & ratchet straps can also be used to anchor down to ground stakes so long as they are brown, black, green, or grey. (Weights need to be covered/disguised or covered to keep a period look. All period-style tents and canopies that use wooden poles to set up need only be sure to use 3 guy wires per pole with acceptable cord/rope and stakes. Vendors will be held responsible for any grass and sprinkler system damage. We will be inspecting each booth. Only producers will determine if a set-up is secure enough to warrant an exception to these rules. Vendors will be instructed on ways to meet these standards.
All vehicles are to be removed from the field and the public parking lot and kept in vendor parking by 9:30 a.m. each day and during business hours.
ALL persons participating in the working, demos or performances of the vendor’s business shall be in Renaissance, pirate or faerie garb and should at all times strive to emulate the speech and mannerisms of the European Renaissance time period, or pirate and fantasy environments.

Returned Checks: Any checks submitted to MME that are returned by the bank for insufficient funds will be run the maximum number of times allowed by the bank. If the check still does not clear, a $35 dollar fee, in addition to any bank fees, will be attached to the account of the sender.
 
Inclement Weather/Acts of God: By signing this document, parties agree that in the event of inclement weather, natural disaster, or act of God, MME will be responsible only for the return of booth fees and only if the entire three-day event is canceled. Medieval Mayhem Renaissance Faire is scheduled to be open rain or shine.
 
Weapons: All period weapons must be sheathed or holstered at all times. Because alcohol is sold on-site, firearms are not permitted (except for security) within the fenced area of the location.
