Autumn Arts and Crafts Festival This is the third year for the Autumn Arts and Crafts Festival. We have had a very successful couple of years as reported by our vendors and our shoppers and anticipate that this will remain a strong show. We have taken over the date of a 30 year established show.
Booth Spaces Standard booth size is 6 1/2 x 10 feet, Bonus booth is 6 ½ x 15 (limited number available), Double is 6 ½ x 20. There will be an 8 foot walkway through the center of the concourse with booths on either side. (We cannot accommodate 10x10 setups) We do assign booth spaces as applications are received and approved (rolling acceptance).
Chances of getting any special booth placement requests are increased by early application date as well as participation in our previous shows. Once again, first come, first serve along with the product being sold and the quality of the product tends to determine who gets in as well. A new vendor with a unique product may be accepted while a long-time vendor who applies late may get turned down if their ccategory d is full by that time 3 e.g.
candles, soap, jewelry are categories ... more. less.
