When You Leave
The Golden Rule
Please leave your space in good condition when you depart. Throw away all trash, take cardboard to the cardboard disposal area, and do not leave anything behind.
At 8 pm on your final day at Three Rivers Arts Festival, you may begin taking down your display. Pack up your work and display completely before getting your vehicle. When you are ready to load your car, Festival staff will give you a load-out tag for your car. Just like in load-in, without a tag your car may be towed. Follow all staff parking instructions during load-out to keep life easy.
Artists attending Three Rivers Arts Festival for a 5-day session in the Plaza will participate in a full Market changeover, wherein every departing artist will be replaced by an arriving artist. This means that, if you are leaving, there is an artist waiting to set up in the space you are vacating. And if you are arriving, you will have to wait for another artist to pack up his or her booth before you can set up. Fortunately, we have done this before, so we've learned how to stagger arrival times to reduce waiting as much as possible. That said, an extra dose of patience is required for the mid-week changeover, and we appreciate it. And this night more than any other, everyone appreciates people who load and unload their cars and then get out of the way very, very quickly.
