The Art Show Director assigns all spaces and has the right to deny a request or change an exhibitor space if it is deemed necessary. Artists will be notified by June 15th where their booth space will be located so they can notify patrons, make plans. Every effort is made to meet the request of each artist, but not everyone can have a corner booth or be in a certain spot.

Once assigned, booth spaces are non-negotiable, please do not call, your location will not be changed. The exhibitor’s full cooperation is expected in all of the above.


The show hours are from 9 am to 4 pm this year.

Set-up will begin at 5:30 am the day of the show.

Parking in Harbor Springs is always a concern.

Please be considerate of the car and pedestrian traffic. We will be loading and unloading only along Main Street and Bay Street. There will be NO driving on the park grounds. The lower street, Bay Street, will have limited traffic, as we will be using both sides of the park.

Parking is limited so please allow plenty of time to unload, park your vehicle, and then set up your booth. Please pay attention to signs concerning where you can and cannot park. Additional signs are added the day of the show by the Harbor Springs Police Department along the 4th of July parade route. These signs are lower and often placed on the sidewalk. Please be aware of where you park! 

Setting up the evening before is prohibited by city ordinances.

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter. 

We look forward to working with you and having the best show possible!
