INDOOR BOOTHS: Artisan Rates apply to indoor spaces only. The Jackson County Expo will provide pipe & draping for indoor booths. NO CANOPY COVERS ARE ALLOWED INDOORS. Canopy frames may be used without the fabric covers. This is per the Fire Marshal rules, there will be no exceptions. No exhibit or display may be so high along the sides, front or back as to interfere with the view of adjacent exhibitors or fair patrons as they pass along the aisles.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES: Please provide a list of all products and/or services to be offered for display or sale during the fair. All products and services considered “Handmade” or “Handcrafted” are juried (assessed for quality and ‘maker’ verified). Because we receive many more applications than we can accept, and to keep the items offered of high quality – the products are juried.
Complete applications are screened and Exhibitors are chosen based on several factors: 1. How the items fit in with our vision of ‘Renegade’ crafts. 2. The overall cohesiveness and consistency. 3. The product quality, innovation and uniqueness. 4. How items are represented in your photos/website. 5. If a shared application, the cumulative quality of work. 6. Our need to diversify the crafts available at the Event.
Contracts are assigned on the basis of this information. Items not provided to the Expo via this list cannot be displayed or sold without prior written authorization from the Event Management.
Upload three images or drawings of your booth showing items you are selling. We are unable to process your application without a current photo.
