Allowed Merch/Signage: No agenda-driven merchandise/signage is allowed (i.e. no political, race discrimination or drug paraphernalia merchandise of any kind). Lay It Out Events reserves the right to remove any vendor. If there is resistance to this policy the vendor will be asked to leave immediately and may result in refusal of future vending in our shows.
Beverages: The official beverage sponsor for Oregon WinterFest has not yet been determined. An email will be sent out when this information becomes available. Homemade Beverages i.e. Lemonade, Ice Tea, etc. will be allowed. Restaurants are not allowed to sell alcohol.
Cancellation Policy: Cancellations received by Friday, December 13th, 2019 will receive a 50% refund. No refunds are given after December 13th, 2019.
Clean up: Restaurants must take every precaution to insure grease does not spill onto the pavement. It washes into the drains and is a city health code violation. We recommend placing a tarp to cover your area and we require placing rubber mats down to catch the grease. If any trash or grease is left behind by a restaurant, the deposit will be used to return the site to pre-event conditions. Grease cleaning can be expensive so we appreciate your help regarding this matter. Please check in with a LIOE representative before you leave so we can inspect your site.
Complimentary Meals: Each restaurant is required to provide 10 complimentary meals. Oregon WinterFest will create and distribute food vouchers valued at $10 each. These will be used for our volunteers, entertainers, and sponsors.
Deadline: Please turn in your application before December 1, 2019 to reserve your space! However, it is very likely this event will sell out fast. Turn in your application soon to secure your spot. First right of refusal will not stand if the event is full.

Power: We will do everything we can to make sure your power is up and running during event hours. However power is provided by generators, which come with complications. Please be patient and understand that outages may occur as everyone initially turns on their appliances and lights at the beginning of the event. Additional power is available for $50 per outlet (each outlet not to exceed 15 amps). Be prepared with a 50 ft. extension cord. Please do not bring an extension cord longer than 50 feet. If you use additional power not outlined on your application your deposit will be used as compensation for the additional usage. The outlets provided are standard three prong outlets. You will need to provide your own adapter if you require it. In order for the event to run smoothly and the entire system to be sized accordingly, please present your individual power needs as soon as possible (voltage and amperage). Staff will be monitoring power usage throughout the event to ensure compliance. Power is only available during open hours. Please note, heat will not be left on overnight. Any products susceptible to freezing should not be left overnight. Please list all appliances and amps at the end of this application.
