2024 Opening Weekend Logistics

The time has come, my friends! We’re just a few short weeks away from Opening Weekend, and I know it’s going to be a little crazy for everyone during that time. So, since we’re all sold out, I thought I’d go ahead and post about Opening Weekend logistics so it’ll be smooth sailing when the time comes.

Also, note that Season Pass payments are due. Failure to make payments by April 15th will result in cancellation of your reserved booth position, and loss of guaranteed participation. Contact the Help Desk if you need to make special arrangements; we understand that life gets complicated, and can deal with those situations on a case-by case basis.

Friday, April 26, 2024 - SETUP

  • vendor load-in: 1pm until 7pm
  • new vendor orientation: 5pm
  • do not arrive before 1pm; you will be turned away. Late arrival is also discouraged, as our overnight security will escort you off-premise.
  • check in at front desk, confirm your booth location, and park/unload/setup
  • only Season Pass vendors may drive into the pavilion
  • Season Pass holders: check-in, get your 2024 Parking Pass then drive-in from the front entrance of pavilion
  • reminder: drive-in will end once venue becomes sufficiently congested that vehicles are deemed unsafe by managers.

Saturday, April 27, 2024 - Opening Saturday

  • vendor access: 8am
  • no vendor drive-in available; park and unload/setup only
  • do not arrive prior to 8am; you will not be able to setup until our 8am staff can confirm your booth placement.
  • all vehicles must be clear of public spaces by 9am
  • event hours: 10am-5pm
  • reminder: daily sales drops

Sunday, April 28, 2024 - Opening Sunday

  • vendor access: 8am
  • no vendor drive-in available; park and unload/setup only
  • do not arrive prior to 8am; you will not be able to setup until our 8am staff can confirm your booth placement.
  • all vehicles must be clear of public spaces by 9am
  • event hours: 11am-5pm
  • vehicle load-out: 5:30pm onto street; 6pm into pavilion

Note that we linger later on Opening Sunday than is our normal practice… last year, things cleared out fairly smoothly so we broke down a bit sooner. Bottom line: don’t run your customers off, and expect a one-hour delay on our breakdown process explained here.

Without further ado - please see preliminary booth assignments below. These are subject to change prior to the event, so still check in at the front desk when you get there on Friday or Saturday. Season Pass holder assignments were indicated on your invoice, but if you have questions about your location, feel free to ask at the help desk (help@chattanoogamarket.com).

*Edit: I added Season Pass Holders to the list below. If you don’t see your name for Opening Weekend and you think you should, please let me know.

I got scared for a second, didn’t see our name on the list. Then I reread the last paragraph.

I did too. I’ve already sent an email…LOL. Geez, I complain about people not reading and look at me NOT READING…


So sorry for the undue worry! I’ll add Reserved Booth/Season Pass Holders this afternoon. I didn’t mean to make you feel left out! :slight_smile:

Are spots outside the pavilion (i.e. row 46) able to set up on Friday, or should we wait until Saturday morning?


Everyone is able to setup on Friday, if desired. We do suggest that you consider the elements which can’t be controlled, and act conservatively.

Specifically, make sure your fixtures are secured, heavily weighted and able to withstand the spring winds or sudden rains which are so common this time of year. Also, it’s best to keep valuables packed away tightly to prevent casual shopping.

We will have CPD onsite overnight, but reasonable efforts to protect your possessions is 90% of the process.
