Event Summary
The Crocker Art Museum & Creative Arts League of Sacramento invite artists to apply for the Crocker Holiday Artisan Market 2017 at the Scottish Rite Center, 6151 H Street, Sacramento, CA 95819.
The festival is one of the premier shopping events of the year and regularly attracts 5,500 attendees during the three-day event.  This event is open to artists from all states.

Artists and Artisans are invited to apply for this annual juried event which will be held:
Fri., Nov. 24, 12 Noon to 5 PM
Sat., Nov. 25, 10 AM to 5 PM
Sun., Nov. 26,  10 AM to 4 PM.

Our event is a “booth fee, plus commission” format. 

The show is sponsored by the Crocker Art Museum and the Creative Arts League of Sacramento, both non-profit corporations.  100% of the profits from the show goes back into the arts community to support exhibitions and arts education.  Our staff members are all volunteers and though we strive to keep expenses manageable, our preferred venue costs continue to rise each year and we are committed to a thorough advertising campaign to ensure the success of you, the artist!  While we continue to keep our booth fees low we truly rely on the commissions and accurate reporting of those commissions to cover the ever increasing expenses that it takes to put on this quality show.  
The Scottish Rite Center is located in East Sacramento. This venue is a single story building with rooms for our exhibitors, lots of free parking and easy access. We hope you will join us this year! 

General Information
 TIP: Remember to "SAVE" your application frequently as you work!
Applicants will pay a non-refundable jury fee of $15.
If juried into the show, artists will be invited to purchase a booth by a single check payment made out to "CALS" for desired booth size. If a corner booth is desired, enclose a separate check made out to "CALS" for $75.

Tip: The show is highly competitive and often the jury only knows what they see in the photos and read in the application.  Good quality, uncluttered photos and thorough answers to questions can increase your chances of  being accepted.  Booth shots should be similar to the set up you plan for the show.
