The Fall Heritage Festival Arts and Crafts Marketplace offers an eclectic, juried showcase of work from regional artists & artisans, ranging from traditional craft to fine art.  We welcome your participation in this exhibition of creativity.

We welcome a variety of fine arts: drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, wood, and more.

All media is juried by a panel of Franklin County Arts Guild members.

All items are to be handmade by you, or substantially hand enhanced by you. Work produced from commercial kits or patterns, and work that infringes on copyright law is prohibited.  “Home Crafts” such as food items, toiletries, etc. must demonstrate both craft and skill, and a description of the process and ingredients must be included with the application.  While commercial packaging (bottles, jars, etc.) may be used, work produced from commercial molds and forms is prohibited.

With the application, please submit three samples of your artwork – photographs or jpg files on a CD.  The jurying process is based on these images and your descriptions, so please make sure they are a good representation of the work you will be bringing.  Please include an information sheet with your name, numbered images and a description of each image.  Food crafts, soaps, lotions, etc. must also give a written description of ingredients/processes. Decision of the Jury Committee is final.

Registration is just $55 for a 12×12′ booth. These prices includes jury fee, booth fee, and electricity for lights in your tent.

Vendors must be open during all Festival hours:
Friday, Sept. 15, 3 pm – 9 pm
Saturday, Sept. 16, 9 am – 7 pm
Sunday, Sept. 17, 11 am – 5 pm

Setup is scheduled for Friday, from 7 am to 2 pm.  All vehicles must vacate the streets no later than 2 pm, and absolutely no vehicles will be allowed on the streets until breakdown, after 5 pm on Sunday.

This is an outdoor street Festival and operates rain or shine.

All vendors will have electricity for lights so that booths can be kept open until 9 pm on Friday evening.  Please be sure to bring lights and extension cords!
