Dear Artists, Craftspeople, Musicians, Authors & Specialty Food Vendors,
Welcome to our 31st Arts & Craft Show Season.
2020 . . . What a year . . .
The Covid-19 pandemic has had an impact on every aspect of our lives.
For over 30 years Castleberry Fairs has worked to create and promote juried arts and craft events throughout New England.
Over 600 Fairs and still counting . . .
Over the past few months we have worked hard to create a space for customers to browse, connect with and shop the handmade works of Castleberry Artisans.
The fact is, shopping during a pandemic is safer online.
The Castleberry Marketplace is a new platform designed to connect customers with artisans of American made works.
And just like shopping at Castleberry Fairs, shoppers are buying directly from the Maker.
Please subscribe to the Marketplace Newsletter to receive special offers and keep up with everything Castleberry Fairs & … Marketplace.
Even though Covid-19 has cancelled MOST shows, we are able to host SOME shows.
Thanks to all of you who have participated with us in the past.
Read on for information regarding in-person Arts and Craft Shows . . .
Jury: Don’t let the term scare you … simply put our Jury consists of 3 basic criteria:
1.) Did you create it? All items displayed must be your own hand-made work.
2.) Is it well made? Only top quality work is allowed, no kits or mass produced pieces.
3.) Do we think it will sell well at our shows? We are looking for quality, American made works by hand.
If the answer to all 3 is yes then you are welcome to apply.
We never charge a registration fee, jury fee or commission.
Jury is ongoing. However, highly competitive Categories fill quickly and therefore you must submit your application early for consideration.
New applicants must submit 3 images of their work.
If you have participated in a Castleberry Event in 2019 and you have not changed your Category, you will not need to send in new Jury Materials.
Demonstrations: In order to differentiate Castleberry Fairs from others in our field we strongly encourage ALL Exhibitors to demonstrate some aspect of their craft. We want to educate & enlighten the public on the value of American made works and instill an appreciation for the handcrafted tradition.
Please note on your application if you can offer a comprehensive demonstration of your Craft.
Demonstrating Artisans are often given larger booths and premium placement at no additional charge.
Specialty Foods: All specialty foods MUST be made by the seller.
However, this rule does not apply to food vendors who have participated in Castleberry Fairs prior to 2014 and are therefore considered “grandfathered-in.”
All Specialty Food Vendors must submit this application with:
* Copy of ServSafe Certification
* Copy of Allergen Awareness Certificate
* Certificate of Liability Insurance listing Castleberry Fairs and Festivals as Additional Insured.
Display: All Exhibitors must provide their own Display, Canopy, Tables, Chairs, Lighting, Etc.
Note: All Indoor Booths include Pipe and Drape (In the Auditorium only in Wilmington, MA)
