By registering, exhibitor agrees to exhibit throughout the show hours and days listed above. Unless the weather is inclement, an “early exit” or “no show” on either day may exclude exhibitor from future participation in this or other Mt. Gretna Shows’ events. Acceptance into this show is first-come space available within each craft category. Limitations on the number of exhibitors within each category are imposed for the purpose of presenting a balanced show. Each exhibitor assumes full responsibility for assembling, managing, and removing their exhibit, and for any loss, theft, breakage, or personal injury within their space. Each exhibitor will provide his or her entire display, including tables/chairs. It is required that all exhibitors produce an attractive product display. Boxes, crates, and other materials not integrated into the display must be concealed from view. Exhibitors are encouraged to provide sun shading for your exhibit and your patrons.
