We hope you will accept our invitation for all local & regional artists, craftspeople, food vendors, and other commercial vendors to apply for space at the 73nd Annual NC Rhododendron Festival Arts and Craft Fair, held along the Creek Walk in Bakersville, North Carolina on Saturday and Sunday June 22-23, 10am to 5pm.
The NC Rhododendron Festival draws hundreds of visitors from all over the region and features the Rhododendron Festival Pageant, the Arts and Craft Fair with food vendors and live music throughout the day, a classic car show, a 10K run, 2 nights of street dancing, and the famous Ducky Derby.
An application is attached to this email.
