Set-Up Day

Friday, July 21st

How it works...

There are 4 waves of set-up. Due to limited space for vehicles, each vehicle is permitted for approximately 1 hour for unloading.

1. 'Early Bird Wave 1: load-in occurs from 10:00a-11:30p
2. Wave 2: load-in occurs from 11:30-1p
2. Wave 3: load-in occurs from 1:00-2:30
3. Wave 4: If you are not confirmed for 1, 2, or 3, you are permitted to arrive 2:30-6 

Traffic Flow / How it works:

*PLEASE READ Vehicles will enter the park from the intersection of 9th Avenue and Humboldt, which is on the west side of the park. Please do not arrive prior to your load-in time (assignments on the resources page) as there is not a place on the active roadway to form a line and you cannot block traffic at the park entrance. If you do find a place to park, please do not walk in and check-in early, as staff has a very limited amount of time before your arrival to prep, and it’s a drive-through check-in system. The park road will be made into a one-way street during set-up. All artist vehicles must enter from 9th & Humboldt and face the proper direction, even when parked. View traffic map. Our artist check-in crew will be right there to greet you when you enter the park, give you a pass to park your vehicle, and show you the way to your booth.

Upon entering the park, you will find that the booths are lining one side of the street at a time. Ideally, the opposite side of the street is where you will be allowed to parallel park, (first-come, first-served for proximity to booth) and the center of the road must be left clear for through-traffic. Once parked, you will have 1 hour to unload and move vehicles beyond the site. There is plenty of parking elsewhere within the park, and set-up can continue until sundown! Security will be onsite, as well as volunteers to help as needed, but we just require that unloading happens within one hour.

**SET-UP OCCURS ON FRIDAY.  FINISHING TOUCHES ONLY ARE ALLOWED ON SATURDAY MORNING, AS EARLY AS 7:30a, OUT BY 8:30a NO FULL SET-UPS. VEHICLE TRAFFIC MUST BE KEPT TO A QUICK MINIMUM ON SATURDAY MORNING AS THE PARK IS ACTIVE WITH PEDESTRIANS AND SHADE STRUCTURES START GOING UP, MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO MOVE THROUGH THE LAYOUT.  ARTISTS WHO HAVE NOT CALLED OR CHECKED IN BY 5:30 ON FRIDAY WILL BE CONSIDERED A NO-SHOW AND WILL FORFEIT THEIR BOOTH. BARRICADES WILL BE IN PLACE AND THERE WILL BE NO ENTRY.  IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY AND CANNOT MAKE IT, PLEASE CALL 505-273-7363.**
