Vendor Form FAQ
Here are some Frequently Asked questions for Vendors.
+ Is Art All Night going to run for 24 hours this year?
Yes, Art All Night will take place at the same time and for the same duration as it always has, from 3 p.m. Saturday, June 15, through 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16.
+ Is Art All Night at the same site?
Yes, Art All Night will be held in and around the Roebling Wire Works site as in past years.
+ After what happened last year, what will be different this year to ensure the event is safe?
Although the event is still free and open to all, the biggest change this year will be that the whole perimeter of the event, including all outdoor music, food truck and other activity areas, will be fenced off. Attendees must go through a security check at two entrances (off Dye Street and S. Clinton Avenue) including being wanded and having their bags checked. All drinks and liquids, illegal drugs, weapons or other dangerous items will not be allowed in.
+ What else is being done to make the event safe?
We have been working with the City of Trenton since January to develop a security plan and a large law enforcement presence for the full 24 hours of Art All Night. This plan has been vetted and signed off on by independent risk management and security consultants, as well as by the city and Artworks. For peak hours on Saturday and overnight, there will be upwards of 40 law enforcement officers (uniformed and plainclothes) from the City of Trenton Police, State Police, County Prosecutor's Office, and other jurisdictions. There will also be a sizable Trenton Fire Department and Emergency Services (EMT) contingent at the event. Law enforcement will be closing Dye Street and S. Clinton Avenue adjacent to the Art All Night site, and patrolling the area outside the fenced perimeter of the event as well as the inside of the event.
+ I see negative comments on social media, even some of my friends and family are saying they may not attend Art All Night this year. Are these concerns valid?
We know that some people will be vocal about these things, and we understand they have every right to voice their opinion, and choose not to attend Art All Night this year. Art All Night has always been about countering the negativity directed at Trenton, and showing how wonderful the city and its art scene is. Now more than ever, volunteering at and attending Art All Night is a statement that we will not let the bad guys or the fear mongers stop us from being a part of something so big and wonderful, so creative, and so important. Art All Night is safer this year than it's ever been. We hope you will show your solidarity with us and help us bring Art All Night back, better than ever.
