You may apply to exhibit your crafts at the Fair. A jurying committee selects exhibitors for quality and type of craft, ensuring that our featured artisans meet Fair guidelines. Because this is an educational craft exhibit, all exhibitors must demonstrate their craft during the Fair using hand tools of the period. Outside and inside booth space is available if you are accepted.
