The Jury Committee for the Jubilee Festival selects exhibitors deemed to best reflect creativity, quality and originality.  Jury consideration is based only on the images of work and display, not on any other qualifications. Please remember that selection can only be based on the images you send, so it is important that the images be of good quality.  In an effort to maintain a balanced show, the number of exhibitors in each category is limited.  In case of a large number of what appears to be equally acceptable entries in a particular category, preference will be given to those applications received first.


  1. An accepted application is a commitment to show and no refund will be made for cancellations.  No Exceptions.
  2. Under no circumstances will stand-in or proxy exhibitors be permitted.  Only the artists or crafter accompanying his or her original work may participate in the Jubilee Festival.
  3. Artists and crafters must exhibit the two (2) days of the festival. Artists and crafters are required to man their exhibits during festival hours.
  4. Commercially manufactured items (i.e. finished ceramics, jewelry, commercial molds, patterns or kits) are not acceptable.
  5. 25% of the work displayed must be originals and must be for sale.  Photo-offset reproductions of the exhibitor’s originals may be displayed, but must be designated as such.
  6. Any items that you plan to sell during the festival must be represented in your booth image.
  7. This is a family-oriented festival for spectators of all ages, and work exhibited must be in keeping with this atmosphere.  The Festival deserves the right to remove work that it deems inappropriate.
