Thousands of people from throughout the region and across the country attend the annual Augusta Festival in Elkins City Park, making it a prime location for artists to show and sell their creations. The celebration of dance, crafts and music caps off Augusta’s summer sessions of traditional arts and music classes on the Davis & Elkins campus. The Festival has itself become a tradition over the past 45 years.
Augusta strives to present a wide variety of traditional art forms. Craft classifications include wood carving, basketry, glass, textiles, jewelry, soaps & botanicals, leather, pottery, paper & book arts, plus many more. Local nonprofit organizations that promote our region’s cultural and environmental heritage are invited to apply. Food vendors may also apply using the same application process.
The Augusta Festival Juried Craft Fair stresses original, individually handmade craft items with an emphasis on traditional techniques. A committee of qualified professionals from within the arts and crafts community will select the artists from the applicant pool. Decisions of the jurors are based on merit and quality as well as overall balance of the various media represented.
Applications for the Augusta Festival Juried Craft Fair are available at https://augustaheritagecenter.org/augusta-festival/vendors/ . The deadline for submission is February 15. Applications received after February 15 will be considered if space is available. For more information, call 304-637-1209 or email email@example.com.
