About the application

This area will allow for a small number of commercial businesses as long as your products are not in direct competition of the artisans and crafters that are applying.  
Please read the entire terms and conditions below.
Approval of applications will begin on February 3, 2023 and your credit card will be charged.

Terms & Conditions

                             Updated 12/18/22
By submitting your application & payment you agree to and will adhere to these rules and regulations.
So that we have a wide range of items to offer to the general public, we will limit the category/type of art and craft to the show.
 Approval will be based on the following criteria:
      Past participation of an ArtSpark produced event.
      We are looking for a wide variety of art and craft that will             appeal to a wide variety of audiences.
      Timing of application will be considered.      
This selective process means each artisan will have a better opportunity to have a profitable experience and shoppers have a wide variety of products to shop from. 
Please understand, we may accept two or more of the same type of art or craft. For example, tumblers, if the applications states that they offer more than just tumblers, such as home decor or jewelry, they can be accepted along with an artisan selling only tumblers.
