HARVEST CRAFT FAIR // OCTOBER 2023 // ALUMNI GYM
The Alvin C. Baker Harvest Craft Fair, hosted by the Blount County Alumni Association’s Board of Directors, is an annual craft fair benefiting the BCAA Scholarship Endowment Fund, which provides scholarships to Blount County students attending Maryville College. This year's Harvest Craft Fair will be held in October 2023, from 9:00 am - 3:30 pm in the Alumni Gym located directly behind Bartlett Hall on the Maryville College campus. This location puts the fair closer to the center of activities on campus.
Applications to be a vendor in this year's Harvest Craft Fair will open in April. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Only handmade or handcrafted items are to be sold.
Applicants who have not been vendors at the fair before must submit 3 to 5 photos of examples of their work. Some types of crafts may be limited to maintain variety.
No direct sales/home party or items prepared from a kit are allowed.
No food items are to be sold.
Applicants must select a booth location at the time of application. All booth spaces will be 8’ x 10’ at a price of $75 each. Booth selection will be based on preference and availability. If the booth space you prefer has already been taken, every effort will be made to place your exhibit as near to that location as possible.
Applicants accepted as vendors must pay a registration fee of $75 per booth space selection. Payment will be due within 14 days of receiving the online payment link. In case of vendor cancellation, the registration fee will not be refunded.
