The Downtown Street and Art Fair is juried for a general audience and reserves the right to remove any work deemed unsuitable by Festival officials.

A 10′ x 10′ booth space marked out on the street is available for artists featuring work in the fine arts and fine crafts. Booths have a flat fee — no commission on sales will be charged.

The fee is $175.00 non-refundable.  Booth placement will be arranged by the Street Fair committee and will be issued on a first come, first serve basis after the juried selection process. Artists may bring their own booth set-ups. The event is located on the street and 10X10 tents are encouraged.  Folding chairs will be available upon request.  Limited electricity might be available upon request for an additional $25.00– if you require electricity please include this on your application form.  Festival is during daylight hours.
