Exhibitors are responsible for their own tables, set-ups for their 10 foot space and breakdown. Canopies or umbrellas are permitted, but must not extend beyond the table or create a hazard for pedestrians. Merchandise must not extend beyond the outside of the booth. Electric is not provided, nor is it available on Duval Street. Exhibitors may bring their own generator as long as it fits within the 10’ x 10’ space. No loud generators will be permitted.
Move in All vehicles will travel Southbound only on Duval Street for move in. Vendors located in the 100 and 200 blocks of Duval Street designated as “A” or “B” and a number will enter from Front Street. Vendors located in the 300, 400 & 500 or “C” blocks of Duval Street will enter from Caroline Street. Set Up/Break down The street will be closed for Lobsterfest by 10:00am. No booths will be set up before the streets have been closed by public works. This includes unloading your items on the sidewalks or blocking the street with your vehicle. If you are observed setting up your booth before the streets have been closed you may be ticketed by the Key West Police Department.
All vendors/restaurants will begin breaking down their booths at 10:30pm. Each vendor is responsible for allotting a reasonable amount of time for break down. You each know how long it takes to complete this process so please allow for additional time if you have a lot of merchandise to wrap or pack. If your booth is not broken down by the designated time you will not be permitted to participate in future shows and may be subject to fines by Key West Police. Duval Street must be re-opened by 11:45pm. There are no exceptions!
