Event Summary
Talbot Street Art Fair, Inc. invites you to submit your entry to the oldest, juried art fair in Central Indiana since 1956. Our past decades of fairs has established this show as a top quality, juried exhibition of fine arts and fine crafts.
The fair is held in the picturesque Herron-Morton neighborhood. It has strong community support come rain or shine drawing upwards of 60,000 attendees. We have listened to artists and for the first year, we will be eliminating all side streets from the fair. This will necessitate  limiting the artists to 250 and remarking booth numbers from 2018.

Booth Information
Each exhibitor must provide his/her own display. No generators allowed. Booth spaces are assigned at the discretion of the Talbot Street Art Fair Committee. Booth spaces easily accommodate a 10' x 10' white canopy tent.  For the majority of spaces  on a historic city street, the front 6' of the space is at street level, and the remaining 4' of space is on the sidewalk, which can vary from approximately 3" to 6" higher than the street.

10 'x 12' booth $350 (this allows for 2' of "storage" behind your booth dimensions of 10' x 10')

LARGER SPACES: Although we do not allot double spaces, there are larger spaces ranging from 14' to 20' in width at $30 per additonal foot. There are a limited number of larger booths/corner booths in designated spaces.  You will be contacted when extra footage is available. This is on a first paid first reserved basis. IF YOU PREVIOUSLY EXHIBITED AND WANT YOUR PREVIOUS SPACE, WE WILL TRY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU. If you are unsure of your booth number, tell us same as last year and we will research it.

SET UP: Friday afternoon from 1:00pm until 8:00pm and Sat morning beginning at 6am. This is two hours earlier than last year.  If there are concerns about being able to set up in time, email us early on. Other than committee and booth captains, artists will not be allowed onto the streets with their vehicles until 1:00 on Friday as marking the streets is a lengthy process. Also, the neighborhood has been given assurances that they will be able to get out of their garages until this time. Booths must be fully set up by 9:30am on Saturday for judging to begin. Booths may be left in place overnight at the artist's discretion. Security will be on duty from Friday morning through 7:00pm on Sunday.
