Items for sale at the Exhibitor’s booth must be predominantly hand crafted/made by the Exhibitor. Each Exhibitor must submit a few photographs of their work.  If participating as an artist or maker, organizers reserve the right to have items removed that are considered not appropriately handmade. Items cannot be simply purchased for resale. Exhibitors are encouraged to demonstrate their making process. Priority will be given to exhibitors who have live making demonstrations as part of their presentation.
Exhibitor spaces will be assigned. Placement, flow and competition will be taken into consideration to provide the best experience for fair attendees. If you have special space needs, please include your request with your application and we will make every effort to accomm odate you. Spaces are reserved on a first-come first-served basis. Vendors must ensure that none of their display equipment extends beyond the 10 x 10 feet space they have booked; this includes any rails, stands or additional equipment.
Only one (1) group per table; space may not be sublet or shared without prior approval of an authorized staff of the organizers.
The full payment is a non-refundable registration fee.
Availability of electricity is minimal. Electricity will be available as a first-come, first-served basis as electricity is not available at all areas. Electrical service requires an additional fee.
a. Outlets are NOT guaranteed.
b. Extension cords are not included in the fee and must be provided by the Exhibitor

Tables & Chairs: Each Exhibitor may furnish his or her own chairs, tables, stands, tent or canopy.

It is advised to bring along shims, or blocks of wood to level out the tables, since most of the street area is on flat, but unlevel ground. All tents and canopies must be secured to the ground using weights/ sand bags in case of windy weather.

“I believe that when Artists and Makers share their practice and process with communities a magical interaction happens and we are all better for it. I hope that CREATiNOVA will spark moments of exchange that can lead to future collaborations in our community and beyond.”

Aly Maderson Quinlog, CREATiNOVA Co-organizer
