From the Event Organizer:


We do have rain contingencies in place in the information that we have provided you. Don’t forget, Market Fair is rain or shine! If it is not a heavy rain, we will continue to have most things outside and move things indoors where necessary. Please let me know if you want to be outside or inside to I can create a modified rain plan like last year. IF IT IS A HURRICAINE or really, really bad weather, we will cancel the event.

For those who are planning to have fire on The Green, the area and setup must be cleared by the designated certified fire professional, as per the City of Dover Fire Marshal regulations. This year the Fire Marshal has required that there be a fire extinguisher within three feet of the fire. I have purchased small fire extinguishers to be placed at each of the locations. Please plan to keep this in an inconspicuous location nearby your fire. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
