Call for artists for the Madison Heritage Arts Festival

Madison Heritage Arts Festival
October 2nd, 2021
10am - 4pm
Mars Hill, NC

From the festival website:

This year’s Madison Heritage Arts Festival date is Saturday, October 2, 2021.

Welcome to the Madison Heritage Arts Festival! We are excited to be back after a year off due to COVID. Our last Madison Heritage Arts Festival in 2019 had 61 vendors participate in our traditional First Saturday in October event. The crowds were great and many vendors reported record sales for the day.

For all of its years, this festival has run concurrently with the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Festival which began in 1967. This Old Time Music festival is held on the Upper Quad (Lunsford Quad) of Mars Hill University which adjoins College Street where the Madison Heritage Arts Festival is held. With the Quad filled with music and College Street filled with arts and crafts, the Town of Mars Hill will be hoppin’ on the first Saturday in October!

As in years past, we plan to close College Street in downtown Mars Hill, and will provide shuttle service from the Ingles parking lot to minimize parking problems. We will use a one-way vehicle pattern for vehicle entry and exit for setup and breakdown. Separate setup instructions will be sent closer to the event.

For returning Artist/Crafter Exhibitors, if you wish to request the same booth space as last year, your application must be received by August 30, 2021. Booth spaces not reserved by this date may be assigned to other applicants. Corner booths are $60 and Standard Booths $50.

After the August deadline has passed, all booths still available will be assigned to our Waiting List of artists. This process will continue until all booth spaces have been assigned.
