Cancelation Policy: The Festival is a rain or shine event. If weather, major disaster, or other circumstances beyond the control of the Portside Community Arts Festival’s cause the cancellation of the festival, participation fees will not be returned. The Portside Community Arts Festival cannot be held liable by exhibitors for the failure of the event to take place. The Portside Community Arts Festival is Portside Arts Center’s biggest scholarship fundraising event of the year. Portside’s board members and staff spend a lot of time and resources organizing the event. If the festival is canceled due to circumstances out of our control Portside’s students scholarship fund will suffer greatly. Your vendor donation fee is automatically applied to the Portside Arts Center’s scholarship fund for children and teens of limited resources. We are very grateful for your support.
