Night Market 2018 Rules
Please note: Dealers from outside of Canada should ensure that they are in compliance with the requirements to sell their wares in Canada.
Vendors must sell only items which they are legally entitled to sell. Please be aware that if you have pirated, or materials that infringe copyright in an illegal manner we will require you to remove the items from your table.
You’re encouraged to sell your Artwork, handmade items, and merchandise with your artwork/creations on them.
We have some firm rules regarding Sexual and Violent imagery in our Market for 2018. (Adult material refers to anything of a violent or sexual nature)
- Any material (art, sculpture, and literature) containing extremely violent and/or sexually explicit depictions must not be accessible to minors.
- Adult material must be kept in closed binders/folders/bins that are clearly marked as adult.
- Adult art in progress must be as concealed as possible from public view
- Vendors are required to monitor their adult materials to ensure minors are not viewing them (PLEASE CHECK Government Issued ID) and must be aware of the persons behind the person's browsing their materials may be a minor. Adult material in binders must have explicit portions censored.
- For Adult Sculpture, we recommend a binder of photographs to showcase and simultaneously censor explicit portions. Examples are available on request.
We regret that we are no longer allowing the sale of Food Items in Dealer’s Den, Artist Alley OR Night Market, to be in compliance with Hotel/Catering agreements and policy.
Vendors found in non-compliance with these rules will first be asked to rectify the problem. If on follow-up the problem persists, the vendor will be ejected from the Night Market.
