September 8, 9 and 108869178488?profile=original
Mt. Vernon, Illinois
Grounds of the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts
112 Artists
Deadline: May 15

Application Fee: $25; Booth Fee: $280 up to $855

The Cedarhurst Art & Craft Fair, a southern Illinois tradition, is celebrating its 41st year! Join us the weekend after Labor Day on the grounds at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts where the Fair attracts approximately 5 to 7,000 visitors.

8869178852?profile=originalWe invite you to be a part of the weekend festival as we celebrate the finest in American hand-made craftsmanship.  Our jury committee is looking for quality artisans in a variety of mediums. In addition to traditional artists and crafters, we welcome applications from Indie crafters, DIY crafters, and emerging artists with a unique or unconventional sense of aesthetics.

Cedarhurst, a nonprofit arts foundation, hosts one of the longest running craft fairs in the country and we are proud of our long history of supporting the local fine craft movement and promoting growth and creative expression for all artists.  In addition to shopping the quality artisan booths, our festival features food vendors, beer tent, music, and a Kid Zone.

Visitors to the weekend Fair are encouraged to experience our 90 acre sculpture park and visit our indoor art museum galleries. We have broadened the call for artists this year in an effort to attract new and unique artists to our event. In addition, we are increasing the footprint of the fair and interspersing (rather than segregating) the food booths and beverage tents in an effort to keep visitors perusing the artists booths.

Marketing Plan Our marketing plan includes print and radio advertising in the local/regional markets and TV advertising with St. Louis and Evansville stations that overlap in to central and southern Illinois. We have an aggressive online media plan that includes paid Facebook boost ads, frequent eblasts, listings on many Event calendars and encourage participating artists to "share" our event through all social media outlets. Our local Tourism Bureau promotes the Cedarhurst Art & Craft Fair through their marketing budget.

  • Cash Awards totaling $8,000 and Recognition Dinner
