PLEASE READ CAREFULLY – NEW FESTIVAL POLICIES 

  1. Maintaining the integrity of our AAOS mission requires us to favor booths restricted to art or crafts. For that reason, and because we were forced to exclude qualified artists and crafters last year due to selling out all inside booth space, we will immediately start this transition. Our aim, here, is to elevate both quality and quantity of exhibitors offering art and crafts. This will, in turn, funnel more qualified prospects directly to you and your art or craft. And that will help you raise your prices faster in the future. 

  2. You must submit a photo of all types of products that will be available at your booth. ​(Email to artsandcraftsaaos@gmail.com)

  3. We are NOT jurying the quality of entrants works but we are assessing the type of products you plan to show.

  4. We reserve the right to limit booths of any given type so that we can have a balanced show.

  5. We will accept 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art and craft objects that are done for beauty, decoration and functionality. This includes normal art categories (for example: painting, sculpture, photography, collage, pottery, etc.) and typical categories of American craft (jewelry, candles, soaps, metal work, etc.) These lists of examples are not comprehensive nor exhaustive. They are simply meant to be examples. 

  6. We will accept a limited number of indoor booths for snack foods such as cupcakes, popcorn, cookies and the like. Foods that can be consumed on the festival grounds are acceptable. Other food items will not be accepted, such as jams, jellies, oils, sauces, etc.

  7. We do not allow any resale items at this event. All work must be original, handcrafted work.

  8. Work done by a production studio is not acceptable. All work must be designed and executed by the accepted artist.

  9. The Board of AAOS reserves the right to refuse any application that does not fit the criteria of handcrafted.

  10. Art and craft vendors must be present with their work for the entire three days of the Festival.

  11. A current business license is required to participate.

  12. Vendor agrees to the use of their name, and/or company name and any photos provided, for all AAOS Festival marketing and advertising. Vendor also agrees that videos and photographs taken during the event by Festival staff may be used for promotional purposes during the event and for future events, and are the property of AAOS.

  13. If a vendor does not comply with the Festival Policies they will forfeit their booth for the show and will not be allowed to return in subsequent years.

Please read the festival FAQs before proceeding. If you still have questions, please email our festival team at artsandcraftsaaos@gmail.com.
