Helpful Art Festival Tips


When applying to a Howard Alan Events art festival, please keep a few of these points in mind. These tips will hopefully help you avoid any set backs that you have in the application process!

*For experienced Art Festival Artists & Fine Crafters:

(1) Always have photos of your updated work & display. If you have re-vamped your booth display, make sure you take a picture and submit that with your next application. The same holds true if you have created new artwork.

(2) Read all the requirements carefully. Many times an artist or crafter’s application is put on-hold because they did not submit something correctly. We have everything that needs to be sent in with an application HERE.

(3) When you apply to a show, make sure you are aware of the rules & regulations. Here are Howard Alan Events’ rules —- Cancellations: will be due in writing in our office AT LEAST 60 days prior to the show date. Balances: will be due in our office AT LEAST 30 days prior to the show date. The latest possible date the balance can be received to our office is given to you, for your records, on the back of your confirmation. If you are accepted, the remaining balance MUST be paid NO LATER than 30 days before the event or a $50 late fee will apply per show. If you are applying for a show less than 30 days before the event, the $50 late fee applies as well. Deposits: For most shows, a $50 deposit may be made in lieu of full booth fee ONLY if the event is more than 30 days away.

*For green Art Festival Artists & Fine Crafters:

(1) When you apply to an art or craft festival for your first time, you will need to produce a booth display. We do realize that you may be doing your first show with us. However, you need to set-up (perhaps in your backyard) & take a picture of your 10×10 white tent exactly how it would be in the show.

—> Numbers 2 & 3 (under experienced artists) apply to green artists, a well!
