Park Layout & Load In Schedule
Click the below button to access your booth number and assigned load-in street and time.
Those of you bringing your own tents can come set up on Friday, April 27th between 1pm and 5pm.
You can also set up any of your display equipment, there will be overnight security. Please bring weights for your tent just in case we are not able to stake your tent until Saturday morning.
Friday Load-In Streets: Fair Oaks, Dayton or Raymond surrounding the park.
View the load-in schedule assigned by street and time. If you cannot load-in your tent on Friday, you were assigned the earliest load-in group on Saturday morning. Please make sure to be on time and use your assigned street. It is the only way we can get all 200+ vendors loaded in on time!
DO NOT leave your vehicle in the loading zone while you set up your booth - empty your car and move your vehicle IMMEDIATELY to permanent parking BEFORE set up.
Vendor Loading Pass
When you arrive, please CHECK IN at our Information booth. Make sure your loading pass is displayed on your vehicle's dashboard as soon as you arrive to the park and write your booth number on your pass.
Loading Pass: Print a copy of our Loading Pass and place it on your vehicle's dash and fill in your booth number. Meters are purchased along Raymond, Dayton and Fair Oaks with "No Parking" signs posted for you to use during select hours. Remember to use your assigned street.
Please note: Jackalope is not responsible for tickets received due to illegal parking during load in & out. Please follow directions to avoid fines!
1) Pack up your items FIRST
2) Go get your vehicle.
*Remember to be swift and courteous to your fellow vendors, as there are more of you than there are spaces around the park.
Do NOT pack up early, the event is strictly 10am-5pm. Vendors who pack up early won't be welcome back.
Tent Weights & Rentals
All rented items will be at your booth upon arrival on Saturday morning. Tents will be set up on Friday afternoon, if you are renting a tent please do not come Friday.
Please note: Per city requirements, we will be staking & zip tying all tents together either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. If you set up your tent on Friday, please bring weights for Friday evening in case we cannot stake.
Do not remove the zip ties that we place between event days.
Overnight / Security
You may leave your tent and display materials up overnight between event days. We suggest you pack up merchandise and only leave display materials.
There will be security overnight (both Friday and Saturday nights), but we do not recommend you leave valuable or small items.
After unloading, please move out of the loading zone promptly, making room for the next vendor group.
We recommend the "Schoolhouse" structure, red "X" below. Entrance on Green St. and $6 all day. Meters surrounding the park are reserved during event hours and you will get ticketed if you leave your vehicle.
Guest parking: The dark blue "P" box to the right of the park (on Raymond) or any "P&W" lots on the map are free for the first 90 minutes. All great parking options for guests.

Additional Opportunities & Promotions
Contribute to the Jackalope Boutique
At the fair, we often have many makers who create special "jackalope" themed items. We love highlighting these awesome creations and would like to feature them all together in our own "jackalope themed" booth at the front of the fair.
One of each jackalope themed item will be on display and labeled with the artist name, price, and booth number. If someone is interested in purchasing your item, we'll send them your way! We won't actually sell your products, this is just a fun way to give you some extra promotion and to spread some jackalope love.
Jackalope Boutique items can be brought directly to us at the fair before 10am on Saturday, April 28th.
However, we'll need you to email us an image, along with the title and price of your item at least one week before the fair. Please email info to email@example.com
Note: If you do send us your Jackalope Boutique item early, we will do an Instagram Story, sharing your item and tagging you in the story.
