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

Call for Artists: 38th Long's Park Art Festival

September 2-4
Lancaster, PA
Presented by Long's Park Amphitheater Foundation
225 Artists

Deadline: March 1

Application fee: $35; Booth fee: $540-680

Labor Day weekend finds 10,000 art lovers flocking to Long's Park in picturesque Lancaster, PA to shop for fine arts and crafts. This top-rated, award-winning show draws sophisticated, high income buyers from Philadelphia (and parts of NJ), Baltimore, Washington, D.C. (and into VA), Wilmington, DE and all across Central Pennsylvania thanks to the quality of its exhibitors and extensive traditional and digital marketing throughout the region.

Set in a tree-lined park where booths line walkways surrounded by a tranquil, freshwater lake, Long's Park treats its guests to a virtual outdoor gallery of the best work being created. 

The park is located in the outskirts of Lancaster City - a growing, vibrant arts destination in its own right! Lancaster City boasts Gallery Row along with cute coffee shops, restaurants, breweries and theaters. Attendees like to make a weekend out of the festival and all Lancaster has to offer.

For 37 years, Long's Park has fostered very special relationships with its exhibitors. Booth fees include two catered breakfasts, an exhibitor dinner, and advance mailing services (postcards and emails). In addition, there are RV accommodations and community hosts continue to offer exhibitor housing on a first-come/first served basis.

Marketing Plan:
Traditional and digital marketing/advertising will be placed in and around Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Wilmington, DE with some advertising in Central PA (Harrisburg, York, Lancaster and Lebanon). Additional direct mail and database marketing will be explored and included in the advertising mix.

What the Artists say:

“Keep up the good work! I only do several shows a year and this is by far and away the best. Great setting, good buyers, and excellent artist amenities. Who else feeds you and takes care of you like you do!”


“I thought the show was of high caliber ... Love the fact that you guys/gals make this show about the art, artists, and customers. So many great things ...”
