Concessionaires and exhibitors operating in a building owned by the Fairpark and doing any type of frying are required to have a hood system. These systems are serviced once per year in accordance with the State Fire Marshal and are inspected and operable. Again, at no time can an exhibitor or concessionaire fry inside a building owned and operated by the Fairpark without an approved hood system.
Exhibitors/Concessionaires who have the privilege of operating in a building with a hood system are responsible for any damage to the system and will be responsible to pay the cost of any repairs.
All exhibits are required to be open to the public at these times:
|Thursday||9/6||10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.|
|Friday||9/7||10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.|

The above times are the hours the fair is open but the hours Exhibitor's and Concessionaires are required to be in their booths.
Admission gates to the fair often open earlier to allow admittance for other events, attractions and setup. Although the exhibits/concessions are not required to be open until the times listed above, exhibitors and concessionaires should understand there are people on the grounds earlier than the 7:00 a.m. exhibitor/concessionaire setup time.
Leased space must be manned all hours listed above, including Sundays. If a leased space is found to be unmanned excessively or a leased space remains closed for any period of time, the exhibitor/concessionaire will be fined and/or the exhibit/concession closed. Outside exhibitors and concessionaires may close their leased space each night at closing time (no earlier) with the understanding that the carnival may continue to operate until crowds disperse. Fairpark Management will not be responsible for any thefts or damages during this or any other time. Exhibit buildings will be locked at closing time.
If a leased space is left open and unmanned, it will be closed by Fairpark Management until any fines imposed are paid. (See Rule Violations). Fines must be paid at the Administration Office within 24-hours of receiving notification of a fine. If a fine is not paid the exhibitor's booth may be removed and the exhibitor may not be invited back the following year.
Closing day of the Fair, exhibitors/concessionaires may close at 10:00 p.m. However, no vehicles will be allowed on the grounds until crowds disperse and it is deemed safe by Fairpark Management.
