2017 Art Constitutional Vendor Application

If you're a fine artist and/or craftsperson and are interested in being a vendor at this year's Art Constitutional, please read below for details and submit the application. The Art Constitutional will take place on Saturday, June 3rd and Saturday, September 9th from 9AM - 2PM. You may apply to be a vendor for one or both days, however you may not be selected to attend both. Vendors are selected by a jury of St. Johns residents. If you are selected to attend both events, you will need to pay the booth fee for each day (only one application fee).

There is a $45 booth fee (and $10 non-refundable application fee) which includes a reserved 10x10 space. Artist(s) must provide tent, tables, chairs, tablecloths, display equipment, etc. All fees must be paid in full by May 26th, 2017. Artists may share a booth space, and must indicate so on both artist applications. Please list artist's name on application with whom you're sharing booth space.
