Due to the Augusta Civic Center’s liquor license, booth sampling requires ACC-authorized personnel to handle and pour product. Alcohol must be purchased for booth by the ACC. Vendor must hire ACC-certified bartender to pour and handle product at booth at $30.00/hour, paid directly to the bartender at the end of each day. If you plan to have alcoholic samples, please contact us (207) 622-0110.
