Attention Potential Vendors

As in past years, various artisans with homemade crafts and specialty goods are welcome to offer their wares as part of the 2017 Festival of the Arts, in addition to vendors and groups selling food and beverages. Arranging for space on the courthouse lawn or adjacent street is an easy procedure; no entry form is needed. Simply get in touch with festival coordinator Jim Steele and describe what you wish to sell or display. In most cases, his reply will be "yes." Assuming approval is granted, the name of your offering will be added to a list which will be published near the date of the festival. On the day of the event, when you set-up for business, the festival treasurer will stop-by your booth to collect the $25 fee. (In some cases the fee is waived for non-profit and public service entities.) Checks should be made payable to: Fayette Area Heritage Association-Festival. To contact Jim, phone 660-537-0484 or e-mail
