General Information

Marketplace, the McMenamins Food Court features 10 or more food vendors plus beer and wine.

Free performances by regional acts will be presented on both the Family and Main Stages. This three

providing you, the exhibiting artist, the support needed to experience an enjoyable and profitable

Festival Dates & Hours:
The dates of the Festival are Friday, June 28, 2019 from Noon until 8pm, Saturday, June 29, 2019
from 10am to 8pm and Sunday, June 30, 2019 from 10am to 4pm. The McMenamins Food Court
and entertainment on the Main Stage will remain open until 9:00pm on Friday and Saturday nights
and Sunday afternoon until 4pm.

Only works of art created by the artist juried in as an exhibitor at the Summer Arts Festival may be displayed or offered for sale. All work exhibited must be hand-crafted, original and produced by the vendor artist. Reproductions are allowed, but content/image/object must be original work made by artist/vendor. Only work in the medium category(s) into which the artist is juried may be shown and sold. Work must be comparable in size, scope, style and quality to the work that was pictured in photos submitted for jury.

The artist guarantees the authenticity and the accuracy of the descriptions of the works presented. Works beyond the scope or medium represented by slides or photos originally submitted for the jury process will be prohibited from exhibition. For example, an artist accepted in the medium category of ceramics would not be allowed to also exhibit jewelry, unless both were juried in and accepted in advance.

Exhibitor’s name, logo, biographical information and business cards may be displayed, as well as information about gallery representation. No other cards, ribbons, catalogues, brochures, fliers, posters or publicity materials (that are not related to the artist or the artist’s juried works) may be displayed.

Summer Arts Festival committee members will be doing daily rounds to view artist booths to ensure that all the artwork on display during the weekend has been juried into the event and handmade by the individual artist. This assures each artist vendor of the Summer Arts Festival meets the quality standards that all expect.

Artists may not let or sublet their booths either entirely or partially, with or without charge. Work of individuals other than those juried and accepted and specified in the artist’s application for entry may not be exhibited or advertised in the booth. By doing this the exhibiting artist risks forfeiting participation in the Festival.
