Priority is given to returning vendors who have their completed applications, all payments and insurance on file by April 15th. Booth space is assigned first to returning vendors (if they have met the April 15th deadline) and then on a first come, first served basis. Information on your booth location and official set-up time will be provided prior to the festival in your vendor pack provided ALL REQUIRED paperwork and payments have been received.

Each food vendor must provide a 32-gallon trash receptacle. Each non-food vendor must provide an appropriate garbage can for their booth’s needs. All vendor trash receptacles must be emptied by the vendor themselves. Whaling Days provides two 30-yard dumpsters for vendor use. One dumpster is located at the south end of Washington Avenue, and the other is near the intersection of Washington Avenue and Lowell Street. Vendors may use either dumpster. Please note that: (1) all cardboard boxes MUST be broken down or crushed before being placed in the dumpsters, and (2) NO cooking oil may be placed in or near the dumpsters. A cooking oil collection container might be available at the festival to recycle used oil; otherwise, vendors must take all used oil with them at the end of the festival. Vendors who fail to comply with these requirements or leave items, trash, or ground stains behind when packing up after the close of the festival or otherwise
