Vehicular Traffic

Set-Up - Please be courteous of other vendors, driving your vehicle in to unload and then promptly moving to an alternate parking location. ALL vendor vehicles must be moved by 5:30pm. NO vendor vehicles will be allowed to enter the downtown area after 5:30pm. Please arrive on time.

Tear-Down - Vehicles should under NO CIRCUMSTANCES enter the area for tear-down until the Event Staff moves the barricades. We make every effort to allow entry in a timely manner, however for everyone's safety it is important we work with the Eustis Police Department to ensure the streets are clear of pedestrians.

This guideline will be strictly enforced!
