Terms & Conditions

Summerfest Arts Faire 2023 takes place over three days from Thursday, June 15 through Saturday, June 17, 2023. Summerfest Arts Faire event hours are 11am to 10pm on Thursday and Friday and 10am to 9pm Saturday. PLEASE NOTE that artists' required hours are 11am to 9pm Thursday and Friday and 10am to 8pm Saturday (in other words, artists may close their tents one hour earlier than the festival closing time), but artists are welcome to stay open until closing time. There will be music and food available until closing each night. All items are required to be original works made by the artist who is applying, and who will also be present for the event. NO resale manufactured goods or imports are allowed at Summerfest Arts Faire. All items must be original, designed and produced by, or under the direct supervision of the artist. The artist must be present throughout the festival. No representatives, though assistants/helpers are allowed. Please do not apply if you are a reseller of manufactured, mass produced goods (no buy/sell), or re-packaged commercially manufactured goods. Artists selling reproductions of their own work must still have more than half of their inventory in original works. ACCEPTED MEDIA -  Please look through all the media and choose where your artwork fits best. It is very important that your artwork be placed in the correct category to ensure that the jury process is fair. Please contact the Summerfest Arts Faire staff if you have a question.  The jury is comprised of an independent group of artists, educators, and art collectors, selected for their diverse knowledge of the arts. They are not Summerfest staff or employees and are compensated for their service.
IMAGES - Please submit four (4) images of your artwork with your application. These should honestly represent the type and quality of works you intent to display/sell. Artists must include a fifth image representative of their booth display. This is not a photo or diagram or the canopy/tent itself. It is a photo of the merchandise display, approximating what the display will look like at the event. If this is your first event and you don't have a booth shot, please set up a display on your kitchen table or some other location and submit it, along with an explanation of how you will make your booth attractive and professional looking. The booth appearance picture can make the difference between being accepted or not accepted. Remember: the quality of the images submitted does count! Please submit images that show your work clearly and to its best advantage. Crowded images that try to fit in everything you do are not helpful. It is better to focus well on one item against an uncluttered background. Also, please make sure all photos are in focus.
BOOTH REQUIREMENTS - Booths are required to be white canopied. Exhibitors may request booth placement, which will be submitted for approval on a first-come, first served basis and is NOT guaranteed. Exhibitor spaces will be assigned by the Summerfest Arts Faire committee and are final. Even if you are a longtime exhibitor who has had the same location for years, please tell us in your application where you want to be if you have a preference. CANCELLATION POLICY - Any partial refund or credit requested by the artist will be decided on a case by-case basis. Accepting your invitation to participate in Summerfest Arts Faire is a commitment to be at the Faire. A last-minute emergency/illness will require documentation.
ARTISTS AWARDS 2023 -  "Best in Show" and "Featured Artist" awards will be given during the event. These artists will be invited to the 2023 show with their application fee waived. The "Featured Artist" winner will also be designated as the 2023 Featured Artist, receiving a free booth, their artwork on our poster, and being featured in advertising.
