Kutztown’s Arts Bash

Beginning May 6, 2011, Kutztown, Pennsylvania, will celebrate Arts Festival, with Plein Air contests, musical events, and other arts related activities. The grand finale will occur on Saturday, May 14, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 5 P.M. when the Kutztown Community Partnership holds its Arts Bash, a one-day festival of visual and performing arts, representing fine art, arts organizations, crafts, music, theater, dance, food (new in 2011!), children’s activities, and strolling entertainers. We would like to invite you to participate in what is sure to be a dynamic and festive event.
We are accepting applications from artists and fine crafters who offer original handmade works only, not resale items. There is no application fee. Arts Bash is an indoor/outdoor, rain or shine event. Space rental for a 10 by 10 foot area is $35 per artisan with an additional $5 fee for electricity, if desired. We are interested in artists who are willing to demonstrate their craft to the public throughout the day, and will offer a $10 discount to demonstrators. Please note: indoor space is limited and will be awarded on a first come first serve basis according to the postmarked date. Please consider exhibiting alongside professional artisans and craftspeople at the majestic Kutztown Area Historical Society’s 1892 Building.
