It takes many great people to produce successful events.
We work with many independent contractors each year. Some for specific tasks at one show, others assist us with many or all of the events.
If you have expertise in events, arts, or other related fields and are interested in contract work, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com
Our shows are juried. Artists apply through Zapplication. For direct links please see the "Art Fairs" section of this web site. If links are not available, the deadline has past. Deadlines are generally at least five months prior to the show.
Does your company provide services for events?We contract for tents, stages, furniture, potty and more. While we do have great regular contractors, we consider other organizations. Please send your basic info and a link to your web site to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our art fairs focus on the visual arts and we do not have stages. A few musicians are invited to participate as buskers- meaning that they play at the show and sell cds or take tips. We have no music budget- our revenue goes to supporting the visual artists. If you are interested in busking please email us, including links to your music and a short description. email@example.com
