Artist’s Rules & Regulations

This is a juried fine arts and handmade crafts festival event. Artists may only show work in categories previously submitted to and approved by the jury. Only products that are approved by the jury will be allowed. All items sold inside the exhibitor’s booth must be the original work of the artist – no buy/sell merchandise will be allowed. All jewelry must be made by the artist – no manufactured or kit jewelry will be allowed. No commercially produced products will be allowed. 


Categories for EufaulaFest include Art, Craft and Made in the South. While Art and Craft categories are relatively self-explanatory, the Made in the South category needs an explanation. This category will pertain to items that are made from or with natural resources of our region. Honey, Jams & Jellies, handmade soaps, lotions, etc. would all be examples of items that would be categorized as Made in the South. Items in these categories, though extremely popular with our attendees, are not subject to inclusion in the EufaulaFest awards program. 


One artist per booth space; sharing of booth space is not allowed. Exhibitors cannot sublet or apportion space to anyone else. Set-up is allowed during designated times only. While the EufaulaFest Committee will make every effort to accommodate specific requests, we cannot guarantee booth locations. Booths must be set-up within their designated space. All booths will be located in the median on Randolph Avenue, under a canopy of oak trees. Electricity is not available for artist’s booths. Artists must provide their own tents, displays, chairs, tables, set-up equipment, change, etc. Tent weights of no less than 25 lbs are required for each booth set up in case of inclement weather. 


Artists and vendors must exhibit for the duration of the festival. Early breakdown will not be permitted. Those who choose to leave early may forfeit their invitation to future events. There is no rain date, so please come prepared, rain or shine. Booth must always be opened and manned during festival hours. No commercial agents may operate an artist’s booth. Exhibitors are responsible for booth set-up and break down. 


Booth set up time on Friday, October 11th will be from 3 – 6 p.m. Please check in at the hospitality tent on Randolph prior to setting up your booth. Booths should be set-up and ready for business by 8:45 a.m. Saturday. All debris is to be off of the street and cleared from the festival area by 8:45 a.m. After unloading and set-up, only one vehicle or trailer will be allowed to remain in the Randolph median. All other vehicles or trailers will be moved to the designated parking area. Please bring utility carts to transport goods and items to and from your vehicle/trailer/tent during the festival hours of operation. 


Music is restricted to pre-approved entertainment vendors only. No sound amplification equipment (i.e. portable radios, CD players, etc.) is allowed in the exhibit area.
