NEW FOR 2019 - PLEASE PRINT & COMPETE APPLICATION FORM

In order to help us with our planning, we are requesting that you please complete and mail an application form by April 6, 2019. In addition, we kindly ask that you enclose a $50 refundable deposit*. This deposit will be refunded to you by June 7, 2019. *However, we regret than any event cancellations made after May 12, or any no-shows on event day, will not be eligible for a refund.

Unfortunately, we have had some very late cancellations and no-shows in previous years. This makes it extremely difficult for us to re-organize our Town approved booth street plan which has to be submitted to the Norwell Police & Fire Departments several weeks prior to the event for approval.
