Bridge City Music Festival Policies and Procedures:

Bridge City Music Festival and all its committee members, planners, and volunteers are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items. All those in participation do so at their own risk of exposure to COVID-19 and/or any other transmittable illness/disease.

Bridge City Music Festival takes place outdoors in Olcott Park of Virginia, MN. If the ground is looking to be too saturated the day of, or if hazardous weather is expected during the event, we will move the event in doors to the Iron Trail Event Center. This space is considerably smaller and will require adjustments that may effect which vendors, booths, and activities are able to be present during the event. Due to this, we will keep the event outdoors if at all possible. If there is a light mist, sprinkle, or light rain, we will keep the event outdoors. This is why we require all our vendors to have, at minimum, a tent with top cover. It is recommended that all vendors have a tent with walls as a top cover does not shield from wind and directional rain.

Our vendor and booth fees are considered non-refundable donations. In the event a vendor is not able to attend as planned, their fee will not be refunded. However, if a vendor is not able to be accommodated into the Iron Trail Event Center should the event need to be moved in doors, their vendor fee will be move to the next Bridge City Music Festival event to cover their participation then. If a vendor should not show up the day of the event and does not communicate with our vendor manager or vendor assistant as to why they were unable to attend, or if a vendor comes late or leaves early unpermitted, they will not be accepted to register at any Bridge City Music Festival Events going forward.

All food vendors are required to obtain a specific registered certification to vend in Virginia, MN. To obtain this certification, please contact the Virginia City Clerks office at 218-748-7500.
