Application Deadline (for consideration in the 1st jury pass) 01/25/20 Applications will continue to be accepted after the above date for categories not completely filled. No single category will be permitted to exceed 15% of the preset number of available spaces. Appropriate Jury panels reconvene often to consider all applications received after the initial deadline. When a category fills, a limited wait list, per category, is established based on previous experiences.

 

An applicant may be asked if they wish to be placed on a wait list. About 75% of our wait-listed folks usually do get a space assignment. This is a very busy time of year especially for graduations and weddings, invitations for such and other unexpected occurrences do result in cancellations.

 

NO FRIDAY set-up and NO electricity available!

 

INCLUDE: A minimum of 4 photos/pictures (per category) no CDs or Slides, however, high quality prints from these devices are acceptable. Submit $25.00 non-refundable jury fee per Category - see the list on application page. Jury Fee(s) are non-refundable. Jewelry is ALWAYS considered as a stand-alone category regardless of the relationship to another primary Art or Craft. Space Size: approx. 10' x 10' = $175.00, per space. Notification of acceptance/rejection by March 02, 2020 or for late receive applications, as soon thereafter as the juries meet.

 

Space Fee and Certificate of Insurance due from First Jury notified applicants by 03/15/2020

 

For late received applications, payment is due upon receipt of acceptance letter. Cancellation Refund: 50% by 04/15/2020, NO Refunds after 04/15.

 

HEADS-UP: For the most popular categories, we suggest that your application be mailed by Jan 24th. In previous years, 5 of the 6 categories completely filled and the waiting list was established from the first JURY meetings. We are expecting the same results again this year.

 

Also - Note to returning exhibitors - As per the 2019 festival, West Winter St. has been reduced by half of the previous number of exhibitor spaces. Therefore, we will be using half of East Winter again this year to keep the number of exhibitor spaces exactly the same as the last several years.
