RULES / IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The Boston Arts Festival will be Saturday, Sept. 8th and Sunday, Sept. 9th, from 11 am to 6:30 pm.
All artwork MUST be made by you. No imports, no kits, no mass produced items, no T-shirts or baby clothing, totes, canvas bags, or similar items. Artists will be juried and accepted based on availability in their medium. All media categories will be limited to ensure a balanced event.
White 10x10 tents with 40 lb weights per leg are required. Plastic and vinyl sidewalls are prohibited. Mesh panels are allowed and encouraged. No tables, chairs, or display equipment will be provided.
Who can apply?
Any artist who makes artwork by hand can apply. All artwork must be handmade by you, and you must be present at the show yourself. Preference will be given to Boston artists (living within the 495 loop.)
How do I apply?
What is the deadline to apply?
How do I get my work posted on the website?
When do I get my location assignment?
Can I request a specific space?
What if it rains?
Do you supply tents?
When should I set up?
How do I unload?
You must move your car immediately after unloading. Carts and dollies will be available to borrow, and there will be people to help you move your cart/ dolly to your space and watch them while you park.
Can I leave early?
Absolutely Not. Artists may NOT break down before 6:30 pm. It degrades the show and negatively affects the artists around you and the entire event. Many visitors view the whole show and sales are common at the very end of the day.
Artists who pack early will be banned from future events.
