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.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations received before April 15th will receive a 50% refund. No refunds are given after April 15th, 2021.
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.

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.
