This is a juried event. Applicants will be selected on originality and quality of their work. There will be limited spaces for different categories to ensure a unique and varied show. Applicants not selected will be placed on a wait-list and contacted should a space become available. Acceptance to prior year’s events in no way guarantees acceptance into the current festival.

Tell Us About Yourself

Tell us about yourself and your work. What inspires you and makes you unique? This information will be used to promote you on our social media leading up to the event. Please keep it to 100-150 words.

Your Products

Please describe to us what you intend to sell. This will help us to determine which category you fall under and help us with vendor placement in the park. Vendors are responsible for applicable permits, product labels, health and safety designations, and be in possession of their own liability and property insurance. The Kingston Women’s Art Festival is not liable for lost, stolen or damaged property.

We require 4 photos of your work and 1 photo of your display/set-up.

Social Media and Artisan Promotion

While we do create feature posts for several of the vendors we cannot guarantee that every artist will be profiled. We rely on you, the vendors, to self promote your attendance at this event. The more people who share and promote this event, the more successful it will be!
