MARKET TERMS & CONDITIONS

Site entry and layout: The site layout will have been prepared to suit both the venue and the stallholders. The site layout seeks to maximise patron traffic flow around the venue and minimise “dead areas”. The location of stalls is at the discretion of the Committee and is not negotiable. Site access will be confirmed prior to the event. Upon arrival, stallholders will be directed to their site by members of the Committee and/or appointed volunteers.

Setup and pack down: Stallholders will be able to access the site from 7:30am on the day of the event and must wait in line upon arrival to be shown to their site. Emergency exits and public clearways are not to be obstructed during stall setup. Stallholders are expected to be respectful of neighbouring sites by not installing displays that exceed their designated area. Exhibitors must remove all vehicles from the event venue by 9:30am, prior to the event opening. No vehicle movements are permitted on site until the event concludes at 4:00pm.

Cash Handling: All stallholders are responsible for the handling of their own cash and sales. Please ensure you have a sufficient float for cash handling; there is no ATM on site. It is advisable to have your own EFTPOS machine if possible. Money security will be the responsibility of each stallholder. Blackville Arts & Market Day Committee takes no responsibility for payments and/or sale agreements of goods sold from your stall. Each transaction is at the discretion of the stallholder and customer. Cash and food handling requirements must be adhered to for this event.

Cancellations: Stallholder fees, minus the $10.00 administration fee, paid by a stallholder will be refunded to those who cancel their site before Friday, 17th September 2021. Cancellations after this date are likely to be deemed completely  non-refundable, however this decision will be made at the discretion of the Blackville Arts & Market Day Committee. A refund of stallholder fees, minus the $10.00 administration fee, will be granted if the event is cancelled as a direct result of COVID-19 restrictions, an extreme weather event or any other reason. The Blackville Arts & Market Day is a fundraising event.
