Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair
Saturday Dec 2, 2023
Application Opens: August 1, 2023
Application Closes: August 31, 2023
Lottery Announced: September 15, 2023
This year, we're introducing a new application process to ensure fairness and maximize the limited space available. Previous vendors are not guaranteed a spot, as all selections will be made randomly through a lottery system.
The application process for the Holiday Arts and Craft Fair will open on August 1st and will be available for a month. We encourage all interested vendors to submit their applications before the process closes on August 31st.
Here's how the lottery process works: Once the application period has ended, all vendor names will be added to a random generator. This means that it doesn't matter if you're the first or last to apply; the selection will be completely random. We believe in giving every applicant an equal chance to participate.
The Holiday Arts and Craft Fair Lottery will be conducted, and the winners will be announced on Friday, September 15th. All lottery winners will be promptly notified via email or phone call on the same day. Vendors who did not win the lottery will be notified via email and placed on a waiting list. If a spot is to open, the same lottery system will be applied to the waiting list.
We have 34 spots available, each offering a 10'x10' space. It's important to note that the fee of $35.00* per space will only be due after you have been selected for a spot. This way, you can secure your space with ease.
At the Emerald Isle Arts and Crafts Fair, we cherish authenticity and craftsmanship. All items showcased must be handmade or hand-authenticated, ensuring a collection of truly unique creations.
Join us at the Emerald Isle Arts and Crafts Fair for a celebration of creativity, community, and handcrafted wonders. Don't miss this opportunity to showcase your unique talents as a local artist and connect with art enthusiasts from near and far. Apply starting August 1st and be part of the lottery process. Let the magic of your creations shine at our extraordinary fair!
