This fine art and craft event is Vermont's oldest continuing arts tradition, and one of the Chaffee Art Center's major fund-raising events. It was recently voted one of Vermont's Top Ten Events by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and Rutland's Best of the Best Festivals.

During the festival there will be live music, hourly door prize drawings, free activities for children and demonstrations of works in progress.

We are seeking potential exhibitors in the following categories: fine art, clay, fiber, floral, glass, jewelry, photography, specialty food, and wood.

All exhibitors are juried. An application can be printed from the website
or mailed if requested by calling Sherry Birkheimer Rooker at (802)775-8836.
