2015 Arts & Crafts Vendor Information

This year the Albuquerque Folk Festival will take place on June 6th at the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. We are thrilled to invite past Arts & Crafts vendors, as well as vendors who are new to the festival to apply and participate in 2015. We are excited to include a greater focus on learning and engagement with crafts this year through our demo / participation opportunities (detailed below).

Click HERE to download a word document version of the 2015 Albuquerque Folk Festival Arts & Craft (non-food) vendor application, and HERE for a pdf.

The application deadline this year for is APRIL 25th. A completed application must include all items in the checklist at the top of the first page of the application (application, check, copy of sellers permit, demo / participation (yes or no) and tent floor plan choice), and please note that indoor space is first come first serve.

Please look over the information carefully as we have made several changes from previous years. Two key changes are detailed below.

Booth layout: this year instead of submitting your own tent layout sketch please review the approved tent layout options on page 2 of the vendor application and choose one, including your choice in your application.

As an exciting new option to encourage engagement, we are offering a 50% discount on booth space to all craft (non-food) vendors who offer a demo of your craft or a way to participate in your craft at your booth. You will notice at the top of the application it asks if you will be offering a demo/participation and in the body of the application, if you choose to do this, it asks that you explain what your demo or participatory aspect will be. We are hoping to encourage an environment of learning and engagement with various crafts through this new option. As an example, if you make ceramics, you could either do a simple hand building demonstration or put out clay and a few tools for people to touch and engage with. We ask that for demos you prepare something simple every 1 to 2 hours, and for participation the objects that people may participate with can simply be set out at your booth.

Once your application has been processed, we will send you an email confirming your participation and detailing the logistics for the festival day.
