Do I have to be vegan to participate?
Not at all! We are a vegan event but there will be a variety of exhibitors. No one needs to personally subscribe to a vegan lifestyle or have such a message to attend. We just ask that anything you sell or hand out is in alignment with our message and that it is vegan. See our page with guidelines for exhibitors. We are also eager to help out and you can ask us any questions about this.
What are the directions for setup?
You can begin setting up 4 hours prior to the event time, that is, starting at 7 am. Based on the time you need to set up your table(s), you will receive instructions from Century Center staff with the best time to set up.
The load-in entrance is easily accessible from the back of the Century Center parking lot (click here for a map of the building). The event team will direct you to this area.
Several flatbed carts will be available.
After delivery you must not remain parked right outside of the facility. You can use the parking lot for a small fee or park in a nearby street. Downtown parking is free everywhere on Sundays. Click here for a walking map of the area (pdf).
At 4:00 PM you should start taking down your exhibits.
