Miscellaneous Information

Marketing efforts will include advertisements in the Highlands Ranch Herald, Your Hub, the HRCA News, HRCA’s website and on various other Highlands Ranch websites. In addition, posters and flyers will be posted throughout each of the four Recreation Centers in Highlands Ranch. 

Selling Food? Any vendor selling food will be required to obtain a Temporary Food Permit with the Douglas County Health Department. THIS IS REQUIRED and you will not be able to sell food without it.

You must plan to stay for the entire event, from 1:00 - 9:00 p.m. If for any reason the event must be cancelled by the HRCA, your booth space fees will be refunded. Equipment rental is a fixed cost & will not be returned. No fees will be returned for vendor cancellations. No exceptions!

No Smoking:
All HRCA facilities and events are non-smoking environments. Please do not smoke on the premises.

Due to the fact that weather in Colorado changes so quickly, the decision and announcement to cancel an event is made as soon as possible before the event is scheduled to begin. If the HRCA cancels due to severe weather, the HRCA will make every attempt to contact you and will refund all booth fees. If the exhibitor cancels because of severe weather or any other reason, absolutely no refunds are given.
