Application Deadline: Saturday, May 4, 2019
The Arts Alliance of Three Rivers proudly presents the 45th Redbud Arts & Crafts Festival! We have been working hard to make the 2019 Redbud Festival bigger and better than ever. The Redbud Arts & Crafts Festival provides artists and crafters with an excellent opportunity to offer their fabulous, fun, inspirational and innovative artistry to our many patrons. We hope you will be a part of this exciting annual event.
Our successful raffle that helps support the Jonnum-Young Scholarship Fund also returns. Vendors are encouraged to donate gifts to this raffle; they are most appreciated. We offer great prizes from local businesses, benefactors and artists and we have built a robust scholarship fund. We are excited to continue this great program for young artists.
The authenticity of the artwork at the Redbud Festival is essential to the quality and spirit of the festival. Vendors are required to submit a photo of their art or craft and a photo of the vendor creating a piece of artwork; we prefer that the files be submitted electronically however printed photos may be mailed along with the application. There is a bonus to this… It provides a treasure trove of photos we can use in our publicity in both print and electronic media. If you have been previously approved as a vendor no photos are required, but you are welcome to submit new photos for publicity.
