The Artist Application process for 2013 is now closed. Thank you to those of you who applied to participate in the 15th annual North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival. We are looking forward to celebrating the agricultural, artistic and cultural bounty of the region with you.
Stay tuned to see the gallery of our 2013 accepted artists and craftspeople !
If you would like to apply in 2014, there are few things about the application process that we would like to highlight:
The Garlic and Arts Festival Mission Statement – Please bear in mind what we are striving to do for the region.
This is a regional festival, so we are only accepting applications from artists who live in the North Quabbin area. We may, very occasionally, invite a few artists from outside the region. The nine North Quabbin towns that will be represented at the festival are New Salem, Wendell, Erving, Orange, Athol, Warwick, Royalston, Phillipston and Petersham. If there are still spaces to be filled, artists may be accepted from a defined surrounding area 15 miles from the site of the festival (North= NH border, East=Templeton, South=Pelham, West=Greenfield).
Remember that everything that you sell must be handmade by you. Also, we are asking each exhibitor to volunteer about 4 hours of their time leading up to or just after the festival.
Please use the form below to get in touch with Lou and Diane with any questions. Thanks for your interest!
