Freedom From Violence Arts & Crafts Fair Vendor Application
Welcome! Community Against Violence invites you to submit your hand-crafted items for acceptance into the Freedom From Violence Arts & Crafts Fair, July 6, 7, 8, 2018 at Kit Carson Park, Taos, New Mexico.

This is a unique event during the summer tourist season that blends the incredible artistry of Taos with a deeply important cause and call to action. Having received overwhelmingly positive responses from past participating artists we will continue to grow this year's fair, expanding our reach to new artists and attendees alike. To do so we will maintain listings of the festival in Taos and New Mexico events calendars, newspapers, radio announcements and oversee a social media ad campaign to directly capture our target audience.

Our goal is to make this a highly visible, high quality, and highly profitable fair for all of our participants.

Booth fees will be used to promote the fair and support Community Against Violence, which provides crisis intervention, support, shelter, and advocacy to victims of domestic violence band sexual assault, and their children in Taos County.
