A vendor parking permit is distributed at check-in and is good for one vehicle per vendor.  If you bring additional vehicles, they will have to find parking elsewhere. No motor vehicles are permitted to remain on Main Street after 9am (the only exception is for self-contained food trucks)  There is a public parking lot close by as well as parking on side streets that parallel the event.  We do require all vendors to completely unload at their booth space and immediately park their vehicle before setting up their space - this is strictly enforced to avoid a bottleneck on Main Street during the check-in process.

Why do you require a canopy covering for the booth space I plan to rent?   For several reasons, but the most important is to help protect YOU and your display from wind, extreme sunshine and potential drizzle.  Secondly, we require this so a uniform look is provided for this event.  Lansdale Day is not a flea market or a garage sale - it is an Art & Craft Festival; and the addition of canopy coverings (as well as tables draped or skirted) provide a touch of class and attract buyers.  All vendors (except self-contained food trucks) must have a canopy covering as outlined in the Terms & Conditions form signed by every vendor.
