We offer indoor space $40 and outdoor space @$35 and we ask for a donation to our silent auction. (Reduced fees for early-bird registration proir to 2/15 and 7/1.) Many crafters who have participated in the past have been very pleased and continue to book the show each year. We have an excellent crew to help each crafter set-up. Set-up begins at 7:30am. Show runs from 9am-3pm. Local paper and radio spots are done to promote the fair. Breakfast and lunch are served throughout the event with delivery service available for lunch.
A breakfast and luncheon are part of the festival. Crafters are treated to complimentary coffee and doughnuts during the set-up (7:30am-9am). We are offering an order and delivery service for any crafter wishing to purchase lunch so crafters do not have to leave their booths.
