GLEN BURNIE HIGH SCHOOL CRAFT FAIR INFO
Registration for the March 19, 2022 craft fair is on hold
We have received approval to hold the March 19 and Dec 3 craft fairs in 2022, but we have paused registration for spring because of the Covid situation. We're waiting to find out if the approval will be rescinded. Registered crafters from Spring 2020 have been invited and some spaces are sold. We'll expand the invitation once we are surer that it will really will take place.
For winter, about 75% of last years' crafters have preregistered and we'll fill the rest of the spaces once we are more confident that the craft fair will take place with our usual number of spaces, crafters and customers. Crafters that had signed up for the 2020/2021 winter craft fairs and those on the wait list will be invited first. We won't add any other names to the wait list until summer, I think.
We have 162 spaces spread over 3 rooms/2 buildings. Most spaces are 8'x8', and some have electricity. Registration fees are $40 for spring, $60 for winter, and we rent 6'x2' tables for $12. Setup is from 5-7 pm on Friday night, and starting at 6:30 on Saturday morning. Craft fair hours are 9 am - 3 pm. The school cafeteria is open for coffee and doughnuts in the morning, and we sell lunches as well. The craft fair is run by the Band Parents Association, a nonprofit group that helps pay expenses for marching band, drumline, indoor percussion and color guard. Members of those groups assist the crafters in carrying stuff to and from their spaces.
Normally registration for both craft fairs starts in mid-November for return crafters from the previous year, and December 1st for new crafters. We put the registration forms on the website on Dec 1. We take handmade crafts only, and we limit the number of spaces for jewelry, soap, wreaths, and some other crafts so that we don't have too much of the same thing. Crafters can get one space only, unless they had more than one space in the years before 2013. Registration is by mail, payment by check.
