We review each application carefully and thoughtfully, and base our vision for the Fair on the jury criteria below:
Quality & Value
You use high quality materials and techniques to make your work durable, sustainable, and market ready. Additionally, your items are priced to provide a balance of quality and accessibility for our shoppers.
Your work, branding, and packaging are timeless, unique and your own.
What's Included in my Participation?
Ditch Projects offers creatives an opportunity to connect with engaged fans and enthusiastic shoppers. There are many additional benefits that come along with joining our events! Here’s what we have to offer:
- Your Booth space.
- A 6’ x 30” table and two chairs
- Outreach to our local and international community
Payment and Fees
Our booth fee is $100 for the two day market. This includes a table and two chairs. You keep 100% of your sales.
You are welcome to share your booth with another artist and split your booth fee. We can pair you with someone if needed. There are a limited number of split booths available and we will prioritize need based on your application.
In the event of unforeseen circumstances, if you have to cancel your participation after confirming you will be refunded 50% of your booth fee. If due to a Covid19 mandate the market itself must be cancelled you will be given a full refund of your booth fee.
Health + Safety
We view the health and safety of our community as our first priority by following local and national recommendations as our guide, including the guidance and considerations for organizing events published by the CDC.
Because guidelines are rapidly changing, we will continue to update our health and safety protocols as needed. These measures may be updated at any time, without advance notice.
