1. The annual Fall Festival Arts and Crafts Fair accepts only 100% handmade products sold by the artisan.

  • This means that 100% of a vendor’s inventory is made by the vendor selling at the show.
  • Mass produced, commercially manufactured and kit products are all ineligible.
  • Inventory with minimal embellishment, items not manufactured by the representative vendor and items that are commercially available are also not allowed.
  • Component pieces such as the stones in jewelry or the glass for stained glass windows are not including under this rule, however, all items they comprise will be evaluated by this rule.
  • Vendors who also sell in online marketplaces may participate in the show provided they meet the above requirements and are not selling the items of another artisan, regardless if the products meet the handmade requirements. The artisan creating the product must be present.

2. Vendors found to be in violation of rule #1 will be subject to a probation during the following year’s festival and possible expulsion from future events. Probation may be appealed via a process of explanatory production techniques, photographic proof of production, shop information and possible shop inspections. If a vendor can establish compliance with rule #1 to festival manager’s satisfaction, probation will be rescinded.

3. The event does NOT provide tents and electricity. Vendors are only renting space.

4. Vendors are not allowed to hang anything from the trees.

5. Layout and presentation of the event are based on the needs of the event as defined by the event management, placements are not permanent. Requests are accommodated to the best ability of management. If a vendor has an ADA compliance need, please advise management so that accommodation may be provided.

6. Event representatives will evaluate all booths and their contents for the purpose of ensuring product quality, presentation and fulfillment of the handmade requirement cited in rule #1. Ability to participate in next year’s Fair may be contingent upon this factor.

7. Leashed dogs are only allowed in the festival area not in the covered market stalls. We prefer you leave your pet at home. If you bring them, clean up after them and keep them away from the public.

8. If you park your vehicle in the event space overnight you must move it by 4 a.m. for others to have access to their space.
