Still accepting vendor applications for the Polish Hill Arts Festival; also looking for other artist projects and participation

The application period for Polish Hill Arts Festival spaces remains open for artists, craftspeople, and food vendors.  The festival will be on Sunday, July 8 from 12-9 p.m.  The applications for vendor slots are now available here, or you can pick up a copy at the PHCA office.

Vendors of art or crafts can be individuals or a group sharing a table.  Items sold must be artwork or crafts — nothing machine made, mass-produced, or commercial.  The fee is just $30, which includes an 8′ table under a tent.

We are also looking for food vendors, especially those with vegan or vegetarian options.  Our festival is nine hours long and attendees are hungry all day long — vendors should be able to make enough food and staff their booth for the whole day.  Food vendor fees vary according to what kind of setup you have and whether you’re a restaurant or an individual.

This will be the fifth year of the festival and we’re looking forward to putting together another great event.  The festival is always evolving, and we’re also interested in getting other kinds of programming.  We’re also interested in artist projects, which might be a hands-on activity, a large artwork to display, or something else — it just needs to work in a kid-friendly environment.

Check out the festival information page for more details and lots of photos from previous years.  If you’ve got an idea, a question, or would just like to be involved  somehow, call 412.681.1950 or email us.
