artist alley

Our Artist Alley opens on July 1st, and we encourage potential Artists to mark that date on their calendars so they can apply before the Alley fills up (which historically has been in about 24-48 hours).

Starting this year our Artist Alley will be JURIED, and will only be open for submissions for 24 hours starting on July 1st at 12AM and ending on July 1st at 11:59PM. Submissions will then be processed over the course of the next few days with all approvals/rejections being sent out by the end of the first week of July. For those that are accepted into our AA, payments will be due within one week of receiving approval letters.

To begin the application process please download our Artist Alley Contract for available table/booth rates and updated information/rules and a PDF of our 2016 layout (spaces will be assigned this year). Contracts will need to be filled out completely and submitted to in PDF form when the Artist is applying in order to be considered.

When submitting your application, the order of things should be as follows:

  1. Submit your completed PDF contract (page 5 only) on July 1st between the hours of 12AM - 11:59PM. Please include in the email a website I can view your work at (accepted portfolio sites are listed in our 2016 contract). Artists with no portfolio to view or very little in their portfolio will NOT be accepted. Artist will get an auto reply to their email acknowledging that their submission has been received.
  2. Wait for approval/rejection. Approvals/Rejects will be received within 48-72 hours.
  3. When approved you will be given up to one week to submit your payment for your table/booth.
  4. When payment is received, you will be assigned to a space on our map. Special requests will be taken into consideration.
