25th Annual Autumn Crafts Festival

Oct. 04, 2014 - Oct. 12, 2014
October 4-5 and October 11-12 Work must be original, handcrafted and expertly executed. Manufactured products, products assembled from kits and imported products are unacceptable. Applicants are asked to submit 5 color slides or emailed images for juried selection of work representative of that which will be displayed. The number or participants is limited to 145 per weekend. Screening of applicants will be conducted by a jury of crafts experts. The number of participants will be limited so as to provide a well-balanced fair and give each exhibitor their maximum market potential. The festival will offer 24-hour security, full color postcards and stickers for artist's mailing lists, a printed program, secure parking garage at reduced rates, moderately priced and comfortable accommodations at a discount. The festival will also include: limited entertainment, craft demonstrations, natural, ethnic and dessert food concessions. The Autumn Crafts Festival at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts had demonstrated that it is, with the American Crafts Festival at Lincoln Center, the best crafts exposition in the New York City metro area and one of America's most hospitable craft markets. This year we are again expecting an attendance of 120,000 visitors. Craft-artist's retail earning potential is unusually high in this two weekend event with some artisans reporting sales in excess of $15,000. There will be 24 hour a day security. All booth displays may stay up overnight. How to apply: Craft-artists may use, download applications at or call (973) 746-0091 and we will send or email the application to you. Fees are as follows: Craft artists may apply for one or both weekends. The fee for one weekend is: $750 for a 10'x10' space. Additional space is available.
