The mission statement for Artists Alley, is "(An area) dedicated to showcasing handmade arts and crafts by both the sales of those unique items and by the Artisans conducting demonstrations of their crafts whenever possible." We will be enforcing zero tolerance for items not handmade for sale in Artists Alley. Any Street Fair volunteer or committee/staff member may require you to remove any item for sale in your booth that you have not listed on your application.

Step one:  Please click here to find your booth number on the Vendor List. Scroll to the bottom of this page for the booth layout map.

Step three: The next step is to click here to view the Vendor Area Map which shows you which block your booth number is in and instructs you to enter a specific way when you arrive on Saturday, June 22nd. We encourage vendors to start early. You can enter the area at 6 am on June 22nd.
