Q: I am a crafter and I would like to apply for a booth at a craft fair. How do I do that?

A: Arts and craft fairs, craft shows and holiday fairs are always looking for vendors. There are two types of shows to choose from: juried or non-juried. Non-juried show are typically produced by the community and local organizations. At a non-juried fair they often review applications on a first come/first serve basis. Therefore, it's best to apply for a non-juried show as early as possible to make sure tables and booths are available. Juried shows are created and ran by a small group of judges who go through a thorough screening process for each application and pick artisans and crafters that are appropriate for the type of fair being curated. Juried craft shows generally draw in a larger audience and are more expensive than non-juried craft fairs. Each event listing will note whether they are juried or non-juried and the listing will contain a link for more information to apply.
