The Festival coordinates set up/tear down helpers-for-hire. More info with acceptance letters. No stakes may be used—plan to bring heavy weights. All weight bearing display panels, tables, racks, cases and/or tent legs must be set on a weight distribution system such as a 6” x 6” square of solid material (i.e. carpet or plywood) under each point of contact with the grass to eliminate damage.
