Current year's crafters: Registration forms for the following Spring and Winter will be mailed to you in mid-November. Mail them along with your check, they will be accepted exclusively until mid-December, when new crafters' forms will be accepted as well.
New crafters: Forms will be available online on Dec 1st and should be returned by mail along with a check for the registration fee. Registration forms will be accepted starting in mid-December in the order of their postmarks. When spaces fill up a wait list will be started.
Commercial vendors/Direct sales: a separate wait list is kept for each craft fair, but the only time it will be used is if no handmade crafters are available for empty spaces on the day of the fair. In the past 5 years we have not had to use this wait list.
Craft requirement: our craft fair is for handmade items only. No resale, used or consignment items may be sold on our premises.
Food: breakfast pastries, coffee and lunch are sold in our cafeteria, with proceeds going to the music program. We have no outside food trucks or kiosks.
Parking: free, on the premises. We ask crafters to leave spaces near the entrance for our customers. There is a limited amount of space inside the fence for crafter parking also. Crafters will be able to drop off and pick up their tables and items at the entrance and students will be there to help carry items inside.
