  • Vendor and info. Booths may only display work in the categories in which they are accepted.

  • In order to sustain a high quality of work, everyone must jury, regardless of participation in pas AAWC festivals or shows
  • Vendors will provide their own tents will provide their own tables, displays, and 10’x 10’ white top canopy. ABSOLUTILY NO TARPS OR MAKE-SHIFT TENTS WILL BE ALLOWED! All canopies must be weighted down due to the likeliness of weather and winds on the waterfront.
