All Food Vendors of Atlanta Jazz Festival 2018 must adhere to the following rules and regulations. Premier Events (PE) has the full power to interpret and enforce these rules, conditions and regulations, and the power to make reasonable amendments thereto and to make such further reasonable rules and regulations necessary for the proper conduct of a safe, clean, well-regulated, and attractive Event.

Food Vendors are expected to furnish their own tent, tables, chairs and all décor and supplies. Food Vendors must furnish completed application, total fees due, menu and prices to reserve their participation in the 2017 event. PE reserves the right to refuse exhibit space if the Food Vendors product or service or the booth area is not consistent with the character of the event. Food Vendors will be provided a tent and basic power of (2) 20 amp circuits. Additional fees for unusual power requests may apply.

Vendors will be open to the general public on Friday from 5 pm to 11 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 11 pm. All vendors must be set up and remain open during all exhibit hours.

All exhibits must be designed, constructed and operated in good taste with the best interest of the Event and public safety. PE reserves the right to prohibit or restrict exhibits that because of noise, method of operation, materials or any other reason become objectionable. In the event that restriction occurs, PE will not refund the Food Vendor fees or other expenses. Carnival tactics, the use of public address systems or other similar activities by the Food Vendor shall not be allowed. Food Vendors may not sublease any part of their space or participate in any third-party advertising or third party promotions or display third party signage at their booths.

Food Vendors must put down non-porous flooring to cover booth area. We recommend plastic tarp covered with roofing paper. Grease spills will be the responsibility of the Food Vendor to clean and may also result in loss of cleaning deposit. The event will provide receptacles for grease and gray water. Nothing can be poured onto the grass or down storm drains including grease or gray water. Any violation of this could result in immediate expulsion from the festival, loss of clean up deposit, and possible fines from the City of Atlanta. Food Vendors must furnish in-tent trash cans and must bag all trash and breakdown boxes for pickup by the festival employees.

Decorations may not be nailed, taped, tacked or otherwise fastened to park infrastructure, trees, or fixtures. The use or distribution of any of the following items is prohibited: adhesive backed decals, stickers, helium balloons, glitter, confetti. Motorized vehicles of any type (forklifts, gas or electric carts, bicycles, scooters or similar equipment) may not be used inside the event venue.

Distribution of flyers, brochures or any advertising marketing materials must be confined to the vendor booth space. Promotional materials or signage may not be affixed to any structure inside or outside of the event venue.

Food Vendors will conduct sales of products or goods direct with the event consumers and shall be entitled to retain 100% of the proceeds from these transactions. Food Vendors must furnish their own cash bank and credit card processing if they wish to take credit cards. Food Vendors are not allowed to sell any sodas or water.

If Exhibitor notifies PE in writing of their intent to cancel through May 3rd, Exhibitor shall be entitled to receive a 50% refund of their Exhibitor fee. If PE receives notice after May 5th, 2018, no refund will be issued.

(2) standard 110v, 20amp outlets will be provided for each vendor as part of their vending fee. Additional power requests will result in additional fees to connect.

PE will make Food Vendor location assignments approximately two (2) weeks prior to the event. Space assignment priority will be given based upon date of receipt of completed application and payment as well as type food being offered. If you have a special request for your booth location, please list it on this form and we will make best efforts to accommodate your request. PE reserves the right to make modifications to the layout of the exhibit area if circumstances warrant, at its sole discretion. Food Vendor area must be confined to the space contracted and provided. Food Vendor space must not obstruct other exhibits or walk paths.

Load in and Load out schedules will be sent out to accepted vendors 2 weeks prior to the festival. Vendors that fail to abide by load in schedule and deadline may risk forfeiture of event space. In the event of late shows, event will not be obligated to refund event space fee.

Vending Space
All vendors must be completely contained within your allotted vending area. Vendors will not be allowed to store or prep product behind your festival booth on the grass. The Parks Department is protecting the impact to the roots of the trees that make Piedmont Park so special. Please respect this policy.

The Food Vendor assumes entire responsibility and hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, defend and save PE against any and all claims, losses and damages to persons or property and attorney’s fees arising out of or caused by Food Vendor’s installation, removal, maintenance, occupancy or use of exhibit space. In addition, the Exhibitor acknowledges that PE and Atlanta Jazz Festival do not maintain insurance coverage covering Food Vendor’s property and it is sole responsibility of the Food Vendor to obtain such insurance, including, if desired business interruption and property damage covering losses by the Food Vendor. Responsibility of the security of a Food Vendor’s area, products and property rests solely with the Food Vendor.

Atlanta Jazz Festival is a rain or shine event. The Food Vendor agrees that in the event of acts of God, storms, floods, high winds, gales or hurricanes that neither PE nor any of its employees or agents shall not be responsible for loss, damage, third party damages, claims or loss to property, persons or vessels. It is the Event Management’s sole and absolute discretion to order an evacuation of the Event, or to take necessary steps to protect public health and property in the event of an act of God, hurricane, or the issuance of a severe weather warning for Atlanta or its environs by the National Weather Service.

PE shall have no liability whatsoever for damage, of any nature, to any person, matter, or thing resulting from storm wind or water, or other acts of God, or imminent threat thereof, nor from fire, strikes or lockouts.
