Exhibitor Information

The Jurying Committee will determine acceptance based on creativity, originality, and quality of workmanship.  At least 90% of each item must be handcrafted by the exhibitor.  Any item made from a commercial kit or purchased for resale is prohibited.  Hungry Mother Festival is a family show and items containing obscenity or profanity are prohibited. If a prohibited or non-juried item is displayed, the exhibitor will be asked to remove the items or leave the show and will not be considered for future shows.

Jury Fee – $10 non-refundable (waived if vendor applies at the end of the Festival for the next year)
Single Booth – $135 (10 x 10 feet with ample room for guy wires)
Double Booth – $195 (10 x 20 feet with ample room for guy wires)
Web Link – now free! (where can we find you on the web?)

Every effort will be made to accommodate requests for a particular space, but availability is not guaranteed.   Free Booth relief may be scheduled at registration.  Booth fees include 1 parking pass and free web link on our exhibitor list.

Application Deadline: February 1st. Applications may be submitted for jurying after the deadline. If all spaces are full, accepted exhibitors may request to be placed on a waiting list. If cancellations are received prior to the Festival we will contact exhibitors on the approved waiting list.
