Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Is this any way to run a festival - First Come, First Served?

Well folks, it has come to this - info forwarded from "a friend", or possibly "a friend of Disney"... or in other words "The Festival of the Masters."

It seems this is a first come, first served situation with lots of protocol, including:

  •  exhibit spaces will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be purchased until all other aspects of the registration have been completed.
  • Registration will begin on August 28, 2013 at 12:00pm EST

  • Step 1: Fill out the Personal information for registration
  • Step 2: Fill in exhibitor information for PR purposes
  • Step 3: Select and Pay for your Exhibit Space:  Here you will be able to select an exhibit from our map to purchase.  I have attached a simple PDF of the map so you can become familiar with it prior to registering.
  • On this current map, the boxes outlined in green numbered 1 - 153 will be the spaces you can choose from. During registration, you will see three colors on the map:
  • Green Exhibits:  Green means the exhibit space is available for purchase.  If you click on it you will see the cost of the exhibit space. Once you choose an exhibit space you will have 10 minutes to complete the process and pay for the exhibit space through PayPal.  If you do not complete payment within 10 minutes the exhibit space will then become available for someone else to purchase.
    Orange Exhibits:  Orange mean that another artist has already selected that exhibit space and is currently within the 10 minute purchase window.  You can choose to wait and see if the space becomes available or you will need to choose another green exhibit space.
    Grey Exhibit:  Grey means that the space has already been purchased by another artist and is no longer available.  If you are interested you can still click on that exhibit and it will tell you what Medium/Category is in that space.
  • Once you complete all three steps and payment through PayPal you will be brought back to a confirmation screen that will recap everything you entered.  You cannot go back into the registration to change anything so please make sure everything is accurate!!
  • Registrations and payments must be completed by September 18, 2013 or you forfeit your place in this year’s show.  Any artist that has not completed this process prior to this date will be replaced with an artist from the waitlist!!

Here's the kicker:

If you happen to encounter any problems during the registration process please email us at  Due to demand, the Hotline will not be monitored at this time, so please do not call - we will respond to emails in the order in which they are received.

I think that haze might have been purple, especially over my friend's booth;-)

It isn't quite as obvious at shows these days, but it definitely is still there wherever old craftsmen gather.
