This year’s Marketplace will feature 70+ juried artists. The organizers strive for a well-balanced mix of art types and price points, with emphasis always on quality of craftsmanship.

We've tightened up the layout this year and are proud to announce that activities will be surrounding the Artist Marketplace with Hands-on Art moving north of the marketplace. That puts the main stage and food court to the south, hands-on art to the north, and the marketplace right in the middle. 

Eligibility: We’re a juried Artists Marketplace. Requirements for artists include:

  • Work must be handmade. No commercially produced work, kits, or imported goods.
  • All work must be original and created by or under direction of the artists(s).
  • Artist(s) must attend the entire Festival.
  • Items must match type & quality submitted for jurying. No work by non-juried artists.

Image Requirements: 3-5 images of representative work

Booth Specifications: Three types of outdoor booth spaces are available:

  • Inline: 10’ x 10’ uncovered, on asphalt: $175
  • Corner: 10' x 10' uncovered, on asphalt: $200
  • Center: 10' x 10' uncovered, on asphalt: $215
    (all booth types can be doubled)

All booths must withstand Northwest weather conditions, with canopies weighted or staked against wind. Tables and chairs are available for rental. Overnight security is provided. In addition to booth fee, a Shoreline business license may be needed.

Demonstrations: Demonstrations are strongly supported; they add to the vibrancy of the Marketplace as well as the success of the artists. Demo artists receive additional marketing. All demonstrations will take place in the Demo area and a booth sitter will be provided during your demonstration time. (Please check with the Arts Council if your demo produces noxious smells, noise, etc, that may be of concern to other vendors or attendees.)

Are you interested in scheduling a time slot in our demonstration area? We will follow up with interested artists after the jury selection process.

Jurying: The jury panel includes working artists, gallery managers, and/or Festival directors, who determine the balance of categories and select the artists. Category sizes are based in part on average sales from previous years. Jury decisions are confidential.

Advertising: The Festival is advertised through local media, signage, and mailings to Shoreline area residents. Participating artists are featured in the Festival guide and on the Festival website.

Festival Dates: June 27 & 28, 2020
Deadline Extended : All applications must be submitted by 10:59pm, Sunday, March 8.
