These are juried fairs. Selection is based on quality, creativity, and originality with an eye towards attaining a wide variety of crafts at this show. We accept only original work made by the artist on site (no imports, work from kits, or prefabricated wholesale items). We may (rarely) allow commercial products, on a limited basis, where the criteria for acceptance is based upon the uniqueness of the product, and the sole discretion of the promoters.
If you are sharing a booth, each exhibitor’s items must be juried Please send at least 3 representative photos of your work and a photo of your booth setup, if possible. Please expect that we will hold your pictures until the fair and return them to you at the fair.
Prior participation in our fairs does not guarantee acceptance into any present or future fairs We reserve the right to reject any application.
Single Booth: 6 1/2 x 10, $210
Booth and a half: 6 1/2 x 15, $315

New exhibitors are encouraged to purchase a single booth space. Please assume that and send a check for a single booth space. You may call or e-mail to make a case for a larger booth space. We are limiting the number of larger spaces due to limitations of space and our desire to keep a high variety of products available.
Standard booth size is 6 1/2 x 10 feet, booth and a half is 6 ½ x 15, Double is 6 ½ x 20. There will be an 8 foot walkway through the center of the concourse with booths on either side. (We cannot accommodate 10×10 setups). We do assign booth spaces as applications are received and approved. Chances of getting any special booth placement requests are increased by early application date as well as participation in our previous shows. A new exhibitor with a unique product may be accepted while a long-time exhibitor who applies late may get turned down if their category is full by that time: e.g. jewelry and multi-media are categories that may fill up quickly.

Please follow this link to WSU Transportation Services for further clarification . RV’s will cost $100 to have them on the Campus after unloading. They are very restricted as to where then can be parked and on the loading and unloading areas.
