2021 Artist Application
Downtown Carlisle Association is now accepting applications for exhibition space in the 40th annual Harvest of the Arts Festival on West High Street in downtown Carlisle, PA on September 25th, from 10am to 5pm. The show will be limited to exhibiting artisans, along with a number of food vendors, local business and non-profit organizations from the Carlisle area. Due to COVID-19 we will be adjusting our layout to have back-to-back booths rather than the quads, with ample social distancing between vendors.
