Please remember: All artists MUST be juried each year.
ELIGIBILITY All artists and crafters, professional or amateur, are invited to enter. To ensure artistry of the highest quality, all entries are juried by a panel of professionals. The judges reserve the right to limit the entries due to duplications or lack of space. All items must be hand-crafted by the entrant - not a consortium of artists, who must be present at the Festival. Only one artist/craftsperson may occupy each booth space. But s/he may have helpers to show/sell. But it must be the work of one artist/craftperson only.
FESTIVAL BOOTHSBooth spaces are 10' X 13'. It is suggested all booths consist of 2 sides and a backdrop as well as some type of overhead protection as the Festival is held rain or shine. No electricity is provided for booths and no booths may be staked down, but must be secured with sandbags. Any variations must be approved by the committee.
NEW FESTIVAL LAYOUT Artists booths will be positioned on ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE YELLOW LINE down the center of Market Street and will run from Water Street to 7th Street. The new layout is required to meet the regulations of local emergency services.
