Dear Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in joining us for the upcoming Calico Arts and Crafts Show.  No matter if you’ve been with us for many years or are a new applicant, we hope to have the opportunity to work with fine artisans and crafters in a multitude of mediums.  If you’ve been with us at Calico before, you now that we work extremely hard to provide a unique opportunity for our vendors and visitors alike.  Therefore, I want to highlight a few updates to the way our application process changed for the Holiday Show and will continue to work in the future.  Please read the application, rules, and regulations carefully before applying or arriving for your next Calico Show.

A few things to note include:

  • Calico Spring and Calico Holiday are two separate shows. While we do everything possible to put you in the same spot that you were in for Calico Spring 2018, there is no guarantee.  If you would like to move spots, we need to know that.  There is not a bad location.  What many like, others don’t.  It is all based on personal preference; therefore, if you have a preference, please let us know on your application.  However; remember, we do the best we can to accommodate everyone.
  • ALL vendors, returning and new, must submit creation, finished product and booth set-up photos for ALL products you intend to sell at the show. If we don’t approve it in advance, you CANNOT sell it.  It is preferred that you email these to info@calicocrafts.comwhen you mail your application.
  • Subleasing of a booth is NOT allowed. We must have a completed application for all crafters.
  • Notice booth space dimensions noted on the application. Prepare your set-up accordingly.
  • Vendors receive complimentary badges to get in the gates. New for 2019, you will receive 2 badges for one booth, 4 badges for two booths, and 5 badges for three booths or more.
  • Considering your booth space, remember that the aisles are for the shoppers. Be respectful of all shoppers and other vendors located near you by not clogging the aisles while encouraging visitors to smell, taste, or sample an item.
  • Friday set-up ends promptly at 7:00 pm. Please arrive in time to complete your set-up and be out of the building by 7:00 pm.
  • The Sunday morning devotion for the Holiday Show was well received. Plan to join us again for this time of reflection at the Spring Show.
  • No pets are allowed.Make arrangements for your pets before you leave home.

Again, we appreciate your support of the Calico Arts and Crafts Shows.  Calico Holiday was a huge success – we had the largest crowds to date!  We look forward to working with each of you while continuing to protect the integrity of the show by closely monitoring the rules and regulations of the show.  Please, do not hesitate to reach out to me by phone or email if you have any questions.  See you in March!

Sincerely,
Becca Turner
Coordinator, Calico Arts and Crafts Shows
