Name Badges You must wear your name badge for entry into the hospitality area and for free coffee at Starbucks (Saturday only).
WI Tax Local tax rate is 5.6%. You must collect and report your Wisconsin sales tax. Tax forms will be given out at check-in and volunteers will be coming around to collect them.
There is no early packing up on Sunday! The show closes at 5 pm and all artists are expected to stay until the end of the show. Please do not even think about moving your vehicle and parking it early on Sunday to hold a spot for loading. Pack up your merchandise and tent, then get your vehicle.
A lot of information here. Thanks for hanging in and wading through it.
Thank You for coming! Here’s wishing you a great show!
