How do I apply? Vendor applications are accepted online at curatedinroc.com. The deadline to apply for is MAY 15, 2019. Notifications will be sent to vendors by June 15, 2019.
Am I eligible? We require that all artwork sold at the fair be original, designed by, and made by the artist. The artist must be in attendance to sell their wares; artists that fail to appear in person may be ineligible for future participation.
I missed the deadline! Will you add me to the waitlist? No. The wait list is actually made up of vendors who applied prior to the deadline and have been scored through our jury. We hope you understand that is why we specify that no applications are accepted after the deadline for any of our events, because adding a vendor who has not applied and been through the jury process simply isn’t fair to all of the artists who have.
Application & Booth Fees: CURATED vendors pay a $125 booth fee for the standard 6′ x 8′ booth space. All fees are non-refundable.
What is the jurying process? The jury members evaluate applicants based on their artwork and look for high quality, handmade, unique items. The competition for booths is steep, so don’t flub your application! While we’d love for everyone to participate, we are limited by space and want to ensure a high quality, unique event.
If I’m not accepted, is there a wait list for vendors? Yes. We pick a small number of applicants for our wait list. Applicants selected for the wait list will be notified via email of any booth space that may become available.
Can I share a booth with another vendor? No. Unfortunately the space is limited so one applicant per space.
Is there anything I am restricted from selling onsite? Oh boy, we’re glad you asked. Our venue does not permit sparklers, fireworks, firearms, knives, wishing lanterns, smoke machines or any kind of pyrotechnics inside the space. So if you are planning on solely selling any version of any of these items it might be best not to apply, as you will not be accepted.
