Dickens on Centre Vendor Rules & Responsibilities

2017 Amelia Island Dickens on Centre sign

Enforcement of Rules:

  • All concerns should be reported to the event organizers.
  • Any dishonest practice will constitute immediate removal from the Dickens on Centre event space.
  • Any violation or non-compliance is cause for immediate termination of the application/space contract.

Vendor Responsibilities:

  • Vendors must sell items either tied to the Victorian-era or holiday theme of the festival. We are looking for artisan goods and wares, nothing overly modern. The selection of vendors will be based in part on the adherence of the event theme and is at the sole discretion of the Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau (AICVB).
  • Vendors may not sub-lease assign or apportion their booth space. No more than 1 business may exhibit in a single booth space unless approved by the AICVB.
  • Vendors are encouraged to safeguard their products as Dickens on Centre will not be liable for any losses. Overnight security will be provided but does not guarantee safety of items left unattended. The AICVB will not be responsible for any loss or damages to items left unattended.
  • All vendors and those working in vendor booths must be dressed in Victorian/Dickens/old-fashioned holiday costumes.
  • The sale of alcoholic beverages and/or drugs is prohibited.
  • Smoking is offensive to most of our health-conscious customers. As a courtesy, Vendors are asked to take their smoke breaks away from booths and customers, outside of the event footprint.
  • Dickens on Centre will provide all entertainment, music, and announcements. If you are interested in providing your own music and/or entertainment, it must be pre-approved by the AICVB.
