Clarendon is “Arlington’s Original Downtown”. That’s why we still remember how to put on a downtown festival! While our businesses have changed, and certainly our buildings have changed, people always love walking around in the middle of the street with a craft beer in one hand and a toddler or a dog or your sweetheart in the other. It’s just fun to do. Everybody is smiling and laughing and having a nice time.

Event Date: September 21, 2019 from 11am to 6pm (rain or shine!)

Application and Payment Deadlines:

  • August 29 (Food vendors)

  • September 5  (All other Exhibitors)

We set our deadlines so we can plan the event layout, and submit One-Day Food Permits to the County Health department by their early September deadline.   Exhibitors who make their payment after the deadline will be assessed a $100 late fee.  No exhibitor will be allowed to participate if the payment is not received by the Clarendon Alliance by COB Wednesday, September 19.

Booth/Tent Locations:

The Clarendon Alliance makes its best effort to locate exhibitors near their requested sites, and to separate similar businesses.  However, we cannot and do not guarantee any particular location to any sponsor or any exhibitor at Clarendon Day.

Additional Services and Fees:

Some restaurants/food vendors and general exhibitors utilize space outside their tent for cooking or for other activities.  This year we are charging an additional sidewalk space fee of $2.50/square foot to help manage “sprawl” on our event site. A separate charge for additional on-street space will be applied as per our application.

  • Power - $125 – 110 volt, 20 amp circuits are available at this rate.  Additional power requirements will incur additional fees on a case by case basis.  The Clarendon Alliance will have a licensed electrician on-site during the event. 

  • 6-foot tables - $20 each

  • 8-foot tables - $30 each

  • Folding chairs - $7 each

Payment Options:

The Clarendon Alliance can accept payment by check, credit or debit cards, by Paypal, or through an interbank transfer using account and routing numbers, a payment method available if you request an invoice.
