General Information

The Walnut Valley Crafts Fair runs each year in conjunction with the Walnut Valley Festival. The primary focus of this 5-day festival is acoustic music. However, along with the exhibition of hand-made instruments, the Festival provides a chance for the display and sale of quality craftwork including fine jewelry, painting, pottery, leatherwork, carving, clothing, photography, cabin crafts and other original work by artists and craftspersons.

While the craft rules indicate deadline for applications is May 1, we are still accepting applications for the 2019 Festival

Applications to this Juried Show are considered on the basis of quality and originality. Consideration is also given to the type of work exhibited to insure the show is well balanced and provides a broad selection of art and craftwork for both the buyer and seller. While not strictly first come, first served, the nature of organizing a show does not allow waiting until all the applications have been received before we begin filling spaces. It is to your advantage to get your application in early, since the first selections will be made in early March. All will be notified as to whether or not they have been selected.
