This juried art show requires pre-registration to participate, but viewing is free and open to the public.

Artists and craftsmen of original work in all media are eligible for the show, with acceptance based on a jury process. This show does not include a section for commercial or imported products. In all cases, the spirit of our guidelines intends that the work depend heavily on the “handmade” aspect of art and craft. We do not allow buy/sell and we reserve the right to remove work from the show that violates our policies and guidelines. All accepted artists are eligible for awards.

NEW THIS YEAR! We will devote an area of the boardwalk to selected exhibitors who display work with the highest degree of originality, handcrafting and excellence. It will be only these exhibitors who are eligible for the cash awards. The decison of the show committee is final.

The festival includes a commercial section that is not part of this art and craft show. If you wish to apply for a space in it, please click here.
