ART DONATION: Donations of artwork will be accepted for auction at our annual fundraiser to support scholarships for students pursuing college education in the visual, performing or literary arts. Donations are entirely voluntary. If you choose to donate, the piece or pieces should have a retail value of at least $100.
SET UP: Set up is between the hours of 9am and 6pm on Friday. Exhibitors can bring their vehicle to the parking lot to unload. It is not possible to drive to every tent site due to trees and other obstructions. Thus, a dolly or wagon is suggested.
The ground is fairly level, but be prepared to level tables, and display racks.
BREAKDOWN: Breakdown is not to begin until 4pm Sunday.
EXHIBITOR PARKING: Exhibitors will be able to park for free within a few hundred yards of the site.
SECURITY: Security officers will be present during the evening hours (6pm until 8am), Friday and Saturday. Spicewood Arts Society, the property owner, and the Festival Directors are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Overnight security will deter interference with your booth and artworks, but is not guaranteed to prevent theft or vandalism.
Please report any problems, but festival organizers cannot be held responsible.
PETS: Please do not bring pets. They’re cute as can be, but there can be problems…!
