This is a juried art show and sale open to residents of Oregon and Washington State. If interested, an application and a nonrefundable $25 jury fee are due no later than May 15, 2023. There is space for approximately 55 artists. If accepted, the booth fee is $150. This includes your booth space (10’ x 10’) and marketing for the event.

Please note: This is an outdoor event on the grass. Although we make every effort to find the most level and suitable booth spaces, not all locations are perfectly flat. There is no power available for the booths. Please note, we periodically experience inclement weather. The ground may be wet. Please be prepared for potential showers and wind.

No more than two artists may share a booth and art must be compatible. Both artists must be juried in and send in separate applications and jury fees. You will share the booth fee of $150.
