How are the artists chosen? 

Artists apply for the Festival by sending images of their art and display to be juried by a panel of three art professionals. As many as 350 artists have competed for 140 booths! The jury reviews the work and chooses what, in their expert opinion, is the best fine art and craft to be included in the show. Artists come from across North America to show and sell their original artwork. Please support them by purchasing their one-of-a-kind pieces!
