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

Call for Artists: Portage Harvest Festival - new event!

October 8 & 9Portage logo
Portage, Indiana
38 Artists
Deadline: June 28
The spectacular fall colors, the lapping water of Lake Michigan, the hum of an active, vibrant community all beckon the artist and the art lover to Portage, Indiana.

Just the words, "Fall Festival" conjure up warm memories of the good offerings of our farm, bread, cheese...combined with a celebration of the creations of many skilled, talented and selected artists and artisans from throughout the region.  Come join us for a sampling of all this and more.
Portage is proud to offer a wonderful weekend venue of juried art showings, wine and cheese tasting, and music, all under one roof.  The Harvest Festival is open to art in all media.  Much as the city itself is a melting pot and crossroads, we wish our show to reflect that milieu. Portage is easily accessible from all areas of Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

The juried art portion of the festival will be held in air-conditioned comfort of the 9000 square foot Oakwood grand Hall at Woodland Park, and the wine and cheese tasting will be held up an easy flight of stairs in our elegant reception room, Sycamore Hall.  And when we need a break from all the activity, we offer the Magnolia Room, a cozy spot for refreshment and relaxation, with the gentle sounds of live music.

For our artists, we will be hosting an after-hoursportage 2 reception with appetizers and offering of libations and spirits, including the wine from our visiting vintners.  Local dignitaries will be invited to meet and mingle with our artisan guests.

Please put this event, the Portage Harvest Festival, October 8-9 at the top of your fall calendar.  Come, relax, and enjoy the talent, creativity and virtuosity of art as you've not experienced it before.
