[we reserve the right to carry these changes on to next year or revert to prior formats].

  • The number of artists for this year’s show is being limited to 80. This is to allow for proper spacing within our venue.

  • Artists who went through the 2020 jury process and were accepted to the 2020 show do NOT need to fill out the application again, but DO need to confirm their wish to participate by the end of the application window. All remaining booths will be filled with new applicants who have been approved through the 2021 jury process.

  • The show hours are from 10 am to 5 pm this year.

  • Set-up will begin at 6:30 am the day of the show.

  • Fees for the show have been changed this year. The price for a SINGLE booth will be $250 and for a DOUBLE booth the price will be $450. This fee includes a non-refundable $25 jury handling fee.

  • Spaces between booths will be between 8-10ft

  • As we progress towards the show additional changes or adaptations may be made in order to adhere to current health department guidelines, the artists will be kept up to date as we come closer to the date of the event.

    We appreciate your understanding when it comes to these changes. We strive to hold the best show we can, all while being safe and compliant with the guidelines set fourth by our health department, community and state.
