Artists and Crafters Wanted for First Sunday Arts and Craft Show

Posted in First Sunday Arts Vendors at 12:16 pm by Administrator

Are you looking to sell your art or craft at a local arts and craft fair?

First Sunday Arts Festivals is seeking new artists and crafters to show and sell their art and craft at our monthly festival. The event has about 4,000 to 7,000 people attend each show. The festival has a strong following of  local and regional attendees plus tourists in town for the day. It is free for the public to attend making it easy for customers to become repeat customers or your work. Parking is easy with 3 parking garages within 2 blocks of the festival.

This show has sold out for the past few years. In order to open up more space for new artists and crafters we have limited vendors to 4 out of the 6 shows a year on West Street.  The festival has 3 areas for arts and craft vendors. They are West Street (between Church Circle and Calvert Street), City Gate (under the trees at the corner of Calvert Street and West Street) and Whitmore Park on Calvert Street (between West Street and Clay Street). All 3 areas also have entertainment and or music performers. Whitemore Park also has a limited number of spaces for food vendors.

First Sunday Arts Shows are held 6 times a year on the First Sunday of the month on Cavert and West Streets in Historic Downtown Annapolis Maryland.

Artists and Crafter vendors can start setting up at 9am.  All vechicles must be unloaded and off site by 11:30 am. The public hours are noon to 5pm. Vechicles can return onsite to load and teardown starting at 5pm and everything needs to be completed by 6:30pm when the street reopens to traffic. In the event of rain call 410-741-3267  after 8am to find out if the show will be canceled.
