Applications for the 2019 Street Faire will be available by January 1, 2019!
Til then read below for how the process went in 2018.
Online applications were a hit last year, so we're doing it again! If that's not your thing, you can still click on the pdfs (at bottom of this page) and print out an application and snail mail it in, but we really hope you'll try the online app first.
NOTE: The early bird artist application deadline for the 2018 show is March 1, 2018. (3/15/18 for food vendors). If you were an artist in the 2017 Street Faire and have been site-juried into the 2018 show, use the INVITED artist application.
- Important Dates:
- March 1, 2018 -- Invited and Juried Artist Early bird pricing rate ends (must be postmarked by 3/1)
- March 15, 2018 -- Deadline for food vendor applications
- March 30, 2018 -- Juried Artist notification of acceptance
- April 30, 2018 -- Last day for full refund (cancellation request must be received in writing)
- May 1, 2018 -- All certificates of insurance must be received. All checks are cashed.
- May 31, 2018 -- Food Vendor registration & set-up from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. Artist registration & set up from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
- June 1, 2018 -- Final registration & set up from 6:30 - 9:00 a.m. All artists/vendors must be ready by 9:30 a.m. Show opens at 10:00 a.m.
- Power is NOT available for artists -- only for food vendors. Artists, if this is a major issue for you, please email email@example.com and we'll see if we can possibly work some magic, but no guarantees! There is a fee for electricity for food vendors (and also artists if we can magically supply it.)
- PET PEEVE: Artists who leave early! Just don't. It makes you look terrible, makes us look bad and is just rude. Sometimes shoppers have to "think" about a purchase for a day and then they are so upset when they come back the next day and that perfect piece of art and you are gone. Don't leave early. If you leave early, you will not be invited back and will have to take your chances in the re-jury process -- which also means you will lose priority in booth location.
