Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
It's official: East Lansing is canceled and refunds will be coming in a couple of weeks. I wish they had announced this two days ago before I paid my booth fee.
If you are a Frederick, Maryland artist that has been hit hard by this shut down the Frederick Arts Council has started a Go Fund Me Artist's Relief Fund. You can get more info from their website:
Here is a link to the Go Fund Me Page:
Grand Marais Arts Festival (MN) has been cancelled. Was to happen in July, but they're not sure what the state is going to look like and it sounds like they're having money and support problems. They only got through the jurying, so no money to refund. Hope they manage to come back next year.
Omaha has cancelled, giving full refunds, invite to the 2021 show, also a 1 day 'virtual' art fair free of charge for participating artists. show was scheduled for june 5-7
Oh no, Mark. Sad to hear this, but love the idea of the 1 day virtual fair - I look forward to hearing more about that.
I know the Chicago Old Town cancellation was announced a bit ago, but here are the details. Click on the pdf.
The leadership of the 2020 Old Town Art Fair, the OTTA, and our hundreds of volunteers are saddened that these challenging times have forced the cancelation of the 2020 show; the first time in 70 years there will be no OTAF.

57th Street Art Fair cancelled:
Mt. Gretna CANCELLED-refunds for application fee (surprised about that)
Show NOT UNTIL AUGUST...NOT sure what or IF they were thinking-crazy!
I sent them an e-mail & followed up with a phone call, however, of course they left early today...just after the e-mail went out. Bye Mt. Gretna! They can keep their app. fee-they will need it more than me.
