Please advise in the application if you prefer to opt out of setting up in the Main Hall. All vendors will be notified 36 hours prior to show if this change is to occur.

Jury Process
In order to be considered, you must fill out this application. WaterFire will review applicants' work and will make selections based on craftsmanship and uniqueness of work.
