Dear Artists,

We are excited to launch 20 exciting outdoor art festivals in the 2022 season! Save with our Pro Pass to apply to multiple shows. Visit our website, for detailed information. 

We make shows easy for you. We offer tent & pro-panel rental, valet and setup assistance at most outdoor shows. Try “Double Deals” on double booths, discounted hotel rooms, and free booth sitters. We strive for display spaces that are 12’ x 10’ deep with extra space. 

Sell your art on, a year round online selling site that gives you free pages to sell from. Attend free “Art Smart” Webinars for tips and techniques on maximizing sales at shows and online. 

Thanks to the artists who have exhibited with us over the past 38 years. Thanks to our Artists Advisory Board and their feedback and ideas. 

Apply today! Applications for our 2022 festivals are due February 1, 2022. All info is subject to change, see our site at for updates, and call us with any questions at 847-926-4300.

Festival Eligibility

  1. All artwork submitted to jury, displayed and presented for sale at festivals must be created, designed and made or made under the direct supervision of the accepted artist(s). All artwork shown must be for sale. 

  2. An artist may apply in more than one category, but not twice in the same category. 

  3. Jewelry created through fabrication and casting is allowed if the original casts are made by the artist. 

  4. No commercial casts/molds allowed in production. 

  5. No factory produced items allowed. 

  6. Photography/Digital art: Original work made by the hands of the photographer is allowed. Only one size of an image may be hung in a booth. All printing of images must be done by the photographer or under their direct supervision.

  7. Artists must create their work from start to finish. 

  8. The Artist certifies that jury images submitted represent their current original work and represent the category and body of art that will be displayed at the festival.

  9. Art collaborators (up to two artists in total) producing a single item qualify as an exhibitor. A collaborator is not an employee or helper. If artists enter as a collaboration, it must be clearly noted on the application and art shown must be signed by both. 

  10. No work made solely by apprentices or employees is allowed. All artwork must be made in the country the artist resides in. 

  11. “Buy/sell” items are strictly prohibited from all or part of an artist’s booth. Buy/Sell is any art or object that is purchased from a manufacturer or maker other than the artist and sold at a festival as “original” work. The restriction of buy/sell work is in ALL categories of art at ALL shows. 

  12. Multiples: Limited editions of work in which the artist hand manipulates plates, stones, or screens numbered and signed in editions up to 500 are allowed and are an artist’s original body of work. Reproductions by mechanical techniques including “giclee” and “iris” prints must be signed and numbered (up to 500). Artists may display reproductions on up to 10 linear feet of their booth, and at the Port Clinton Art Festival in a single bin only.

  4. Any artist closing the booth prior to the end of the show without permission will not be permitted to return the next day or in future years. 

  5. Only artwork in the category accepted through the jury process is allowed. It is the exclusive right of the Festival Committee to direct removal of work at the show that is not in compliance with festival rules. Non-complying artists will be asked to leave the show immediately and no refund will be given.
