Calling all artists and artisans...
For six weeks from November 15th thru December 21st 2014, the second annual Christmas Faire will be held every Thursday thru Friday and Sunday from noon - 4 PM and Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Alabama River Region Arts Center at 300 W. Tallassee Street in Wetumpka. The Arts Center Lobby and Hall will be filled with trees and decorated tables to display quality local handmade gifts and decorations.
Cost for displaying your items is free for ARRAC members and $20 for non-members. We can arrange for the $20 fee to be paid from your first sales. Christmas trees, tables and other display set-ups are available but the best space is limited to "first arrivals". ARRAC has limited jewelry cases and display racks for cards, so please feel free to bring your own displays. Highly valuable items can be locked up over-night. Checking inventory "in and out" accommodations will be made for those artists planning other short-term arts and crafts shows such as Christmas on the Coosa. You do not have to stay with your work, but volunteers are welcome.
Advertising and marketing will consist of Community Calendars in local newspapers, ARRAC’s website and Facebook page, as well as flyers distributed around the community and at upcoming functions. A copy of the flyer can be provided to you for your own mail list, or an electronic version in PDF format can be emailed for your email list distribution. Exhibitors are required to submit a photo and/or a sample of each item to be sold along with the application. Products will be juried in. Only personally handcrafted or assembled items will be accepted. **No import trinkets are allowed. ARRAC reserves the right to refuse entry. If an entry has been misrepresented in any way, the exhibitor will not be permitted to participate and space rental fees will be forfeited.**
For more information call Theresa Wayne at 334-300-9394, or
leave a message at the Arts Center by calling 334-578-9485.
