Items must be handmade by the artist. Items not created by the registrant will not be permitted in the event.
Resale of wholesale items (buy/sell), commercially manufactured products, mass produced items and kits ARE NOT PERMITTED and will result in immediate dismissal. Items also not allowed at the event include: books (unless you are the author), drug paraphernalia, incense, furniture, antiques, tobacco-related products, items created by another artist, art containing explicit language, violence, graphic nudity or anything else questionable for small children.
Artists may sell their work; however, it is not necessary that they do so. If you do sell your work, you are responsible for collecting and reporting the sales tax.
Artists should bring their own supplies to process payments (cash box, credit card reader or receipt book). If you plan on processing credit card sales, please keep in mind that Wifi is NOT available in the park so please have alternate ways of accepting payment.
Each artist will have a pre-assigned 10 ‘x 10’ space. There is no height restriction. Your space will most likely be on the grass or dirt which may be uneven. You may want to consider bringing a mat or outdoor carpet for your booth.
Artists must provide their own tables, chairs, easels, tents, etc. Artists should bring supplies such as string, tape, scissors, binder clips, clamps or weights in order to secure their materials. Any materials, stands or tents must be securely fastened to the ground. Our suggestion is that tents have at least 20 lbs of weight on each leg. An unsecured tent can quickly become a safety hazard and you may be asked to disassemble it.
Artists will NOT be allowed to hang their work on the buildings, lampposts, trees or other permanent structures.
Artists are responsible for their own booth set-up and clean-up.
Be aware that photos and video of you and your work may be taken to capture and promote the event, both on the day of and for future years. That being said, you have the right to ask that close-up photos of your work not be taken.
