12.\tWe encourage you to bring your own canopy in order to stay cool or keep dry, as the case may be. If you have a booth with a canopy, you must supply your own fire extinguisher due to City of Milwaukee fire regulations. If you decide to bring a canopy, please make sure that it has weights.

8.\tAll booth operators provide their own tables, chairs, lights, tents, canopies and display items. Booth spaces are 11\u2032 x 11\u2032. Your space will be marked with your booth number. Please provide weights for your tents, as well as a fire extinguisher.

2.\tThere is NO booth sharing permitted unless permission is pre-approved by the Bay View Community Fund, Inc. before August 15. Booth spaces will be sent out prior to the day of the Bash. Both vendors will have to provide the proper documentation.3.\tAll vendors who are selling items must submit their State of Wisconsin Seller’s Permit number to the Bay View Community Fund, Inc at the address listed below. This includes both businesses who are pre-approved to share a booth–one business cannot supply the Seller’s Permit number to cover another business within the same booth.

Throughout the day we have various opportunities throughout the festival where volunteers give their time in 3-4 hour shifts. Come for one shift or stay all day, we would be happy to have you volunteer! 10.\tYou are responsible for cleaning up your booth space. Any trash left behind in your area will result in a $25.00 cleaning fee. Throw your garbage in the festival dumpsters located on the grounds. 11.\tIf you require electricity through us you must supply your own 100 foot, 12 gauge, heavy-duty, three-pronged extension cord. We ask for this length because your outlet may not be close by. Remember, we only supply 20 amp service.14.\tSelling silly string, party poppers, snap dragons or any other novelty items that leave trash behind will not be permitted. The Bash is a eco-friendly and we would like to keep the streets clean. Selling anything other than those items previously agreed upon by the Bay View Community Fund, Inc. is not permitted. If you are found to be in violation, your booth will be closed. The Bash is allowing community groups and non-profit organizations to earn additional funding for their organization by helping us staff the bars at the Bash. Volunteers need to be 18+ (bartending experience not required). Groups will be able to earn a portion of the pooled tips per hour based on the number of volunteers participating for each organization.

Signs are permitted only in your purchased booth area.13.\tThe playing of any loud electronic music at your booth site is not permitted since it violates our city\u2019s noise permit requirements for the festival.
