The conditions for the Haliburton Home & Cottage Show. These Terms and Conditions are stated to provide a well-organized show for all Exhibitors. The decision of Show Management on questions and interpretations will be final.
As our show is community based, it is expected that Exhibitors, Home Show management and staff will conduct themselves in a professional and courteous manner treating all customers with respect.
Show Management reserves the right to decline or refund registration applications that aren’t the right fit for this show.
A key aspect of the Home & Cottage Show is the sharing of information in a courteous unchallenging manner. Political activism, such as petitions, trying to change or swaying public opinion on any issue presently before any level of government or in the process of becoming such an issue will be deemed to not be in the best interests of the show or the community and as such Exhibitors would be denied entry to the show. If by chance any exhibitor (or their representative) or an attendee exhibits such behavior, they will be asked to leave immediately, and their space will be forfeited.
Information being shared verbally or via handouts cannot have a political call to action to further a cause nor show any animosity to an individual or organization.
