Become a Mountain State Art & Craft Fair Exhibitor


The Mountain State Art & Craft Fair focuses on bringing artists and patrons together in an exciting and educational environment that provides a low-overhead venue for artists and crafts people to sell their work. The Fair invests all exhibitor fees in the promotion and production of each year’s event. Make the decision today to join the MSACF family, and sell and demonstrate your craft alongside more than a hundred other professional artisans.


Jurying for 2015 Fair will be held:
Wednesday, July 2, 2014 – 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 
Holt Lodge


Each candidate must enter at least three, but no more than six examples of the craft to be juried. Each applicant must accompany his or her craft submission on the day of the scheduled jury session. Crafts should be original and made by hand using the necessary and appropriate tools. A panel of craft experts will jury submissions. Please see the Exhibitor Information & Application for more information.


The Basics

The MSACF is a juried fair competition in which participants’ work is judged by a person or panel of persons convened specifically to judge the participants’ efforts, either by the competition’s set of criteria dependent upon the nature of the competition or the judges themselves.

Great people and quality tents make setup easy and fun.

Each year the MSACF engages in an extensive advertising and public relations campaign to attract visitors and help you sell more.
