Self-Contained: Each Community Organization or similar organization must be self-contained. Please bring your own tents, tables and chairs. All organizations should have a canopy/tent and should also have a nice sign or banner naming your group. All tents must be staked or weighted down in case of inclement weather.
Sales: If you are selling anything it must be approved by the Elizabeth Celtic Festival prior to the event. Groups may only sell memberships and group-specific merchandise. You may not sell food unless prepackaged, like Girl Scout Cookies, due to health department regulations. You may not sell anything that conflicts with our paying vendors, merchants, or artisans.
Pets: Non-certified service dogs are strictly prohibited unless you receive a pre-approved exception. If you are an overnight registered participant via Clans, Artisans/Merchandise Merchants/Vendors, Living History, Animals of the British Isles, or are a registered Committee Volunteer and wish to discuss an exception, please email Animals@ElizabethCelticFest.org. Exceptions will be handled by 72 hours prior to the first day of the festival as our volunteers will be busy on grounds and unavailable to process exceptions. Without an exception, please understand that your animal will not be allowed.
