Ticket holders and vendors have been trying to get event organizers on the line since the festival was canceled last week, but they're not having much luck. I've received emails from several vendors who shelled out more than $1,000 each for a booth, along with additional money for supplies, and they're stuck. One vendor, a Cal State student who was hoping to make a few bucks for college, says, "It's turning into a nightmare." From mxdwn.com:
Ticket vendors such as Flavorus.com haven't heard from the Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance, nor have they succeeded in contacting the event organizers at all, leaving the prospect of refunding in limbo. In a letter addressed to one of their customers, Flavorus explained their frustration frankly in regards to communicating with organizers for the street fair: "As courtesy to you, we have been attempting to contact the event organizers for the last several days regarding customer refunds. Unfortunately, the event organizers have not responded to us and it seems, at this time, they are reluctant to issue any refunds for any tickets sold."
Is anyone from the City Attorney's office looking into this?
