Deadline: August 15
 
Application fee: $10 Booth fee: $75
 
The ArtsFest is part of the 40th Home and Garden Tour in the Registered Historic District in downtown Fort Wayne.
 
We think you'll love spending the weekend with us in our historic neighborhood during its very popular Home Tour. The West Central neighborhood is on the National Historic Register and the ArtsFest takes place in the street in front of these revived workers' cottages and restored mansions. Imagine your booth set among shady trees and enjoy the easy-going vibe, where the residents show off their unique homes to old house lovers. The event regularly brings in about 3,000 people who attend the tour every year and love the ambiance of the neighborhood.
10663699056?profile=RESIZE_584x
For our 40th anniversary tour we will be including neighborhood artists' studios. Our neighborhood was saved from the wrecking ball because the Fort Wayne Art School was here. As time went by and the neighborhood deteriorated, artists moved in to live and work here. The artist community is the backbone of the neighborhood. This year we have invited them to host open studios during the tour, to use their mailing lists to bring in more shoppers. We will be marketing this new aspect with more emphasis on the arts. We expect this will enhance sales for both the ArtsFest exhibitors and the resident artists.
 
10663702256?profile=RESIZE_400xWhat to expect:
  • a small boutique event
  • easy setup, drive up to your booth, short hours, helpful volunteers
  • cool food trucks, live music and buyers that appreciate unique and one-of-a-kind goods.
  • A friendly place to spend the weekend AND you can't beat the booth fee!
