Vending

at Monroe Street Fair
Commercial (non-political) vending included. No food vendors. No city permits or insurance required! Monroe Street Fair's permit mandated liability insurance does not cover or protect vendors. Email Monroe Street Fair at vending@monroestreetfair.com.

on Ann Arbor City Streets and Sidewalks
As part of Monroe Street Fair's permit approval, Ann Arbor City Council has suspended vending permits within 2 blocks of the Diag during Hash Bash. Ann Arbor City Council has made no exception for 1st Amendment protected sales and solicitations of donations, books, magazines, videos, recordings and other items bearing messages. Vendors ignoring the ban risk certain tickets and seizure of their property by Ann Arbor police. Local courts dismiss tickets and return seized 1st Amendment protected items after vendors return for a court hearing weeks later. Only vendors who have been ticketed and/or their 1st Amendment protected items seized have standing in court to request a restraining order on police during future Hash Bashes. Vendors with standing may request assistance from Washtenaw County American Civil Liberties Union.

on Diag
The University of Michigan has steadfastly refused to allow any sales or solicitations, including 1st Amendment protected activity, on or near the Diag, except for University recognized organizations. Vendors ignoring the ban or seeking to challenge the ban on 1st Amendment protected sales and solicitations face the same risks and hurdles as vendors on Ann Arbor city streets and sidewalks. (see above)
