The show management has insurance that requires exhibitors to also have valid event liability insurance.

Our shows are registered with them and it's an easy procedure.

Our jurors will select high quality fine arts and crafts that appeal to a diverse audience. Jurors will view images along with Artist Statements. Images should be of individual artwork so jurors can determine the quality of quality of craftsmanship and materials. Jurors look for a high level of professionalism and consistency of style. We suggest at least 3 tiers of pricing so that you can be successful selling at the festival.

Booth display image should be of the exhibitor's booth and displayed product only. If no booth image is available a group showing of artworks on display may be submitted. 

An artist may be placed in the "Wait List" category if accepted by the jury but another artist has also been accepted with very similar work. The artist with the earlier application date will be invited and the 2nd later application artist will be waitlisted. If the invited artist with the earlier application declines their invitation to exhibit the waitlisted artist will be notified immediately after the purchase deadline and will have 7 days to accept and pay their booth fees.

This is an outdoor show. Exhibitors must provide their own weather resistant booths. Booths must be weighted with a minimum of 40 lbs. weight at each leg support (no cement blocks or uncovered plastic containers are allowed). Booth sites are mostly level, but some shims may be needed. All of the booth sites are easily viewed by the attendees and are within the parameters of the park.

Corner booths will be assigned according to your booth fee payment date. We cannot guarantee a corner unless you include it with your Zapplication reservation. We suggest booth fee payment as soon as you are notified of acceptance. If you would like the same location as a previous year, note that on your ZAPP reservation.

Electricity is not available to exhibitors at this festival. Silent use generators are allowed on a case by case basis. Contact the Festival Exhibitor to discuss.

Colorado Springs has "front range" mountain weather. July is usually dry but occasionally it can get windy with high gusts of wind and brief rains may pass through. Bring your own supply of water to stay hydrated. The altitude is 6,035' and combined with the heat and sun, can cause dehydration.
