2019 Artisan and Vendor Application
We are so excited about our 3rd Annual Music and Arts Festival – on July 20, 2019 – at KIMBALL FARM Lancaster, MA. The Music and Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, with music that will continue into the evening until 8:00. Kimball Farm in Lancaster is a wonderful venue with plenty of parking, open areas for the artists/vendors and eating areas with a great view of the musical entertainment.
Our festival is a fundraiser for the Estelle R. Ford Future Nurses Scholarship. Estelle was a school nurse for over 20 years in Central Massachusetts and started the Future Nurses Club at Gardner High School. We want to keep her legacy alive by providing scholarships to 2nd, 3rd and 4th year nursing students who also want to serve the local community.
We thank you for considering our invitation to our third show. From the beginning, we wanted artists who bring their passion for creating original items that people will enjoy owning, giving and using. We will also have several local musicians keeping the crowd entertained all afternoon and evening.
Please fill out the form on the back of this page and return the application as soon as possible. Artists will be considered on a first come, first serve basis. Last year we had over 80 artists and vendors….we are hoping to continue to attract unique crafters/artisans/vendors and musicians. We have early registration (before December 31, 2018) to save you money - the cost for a 12x12 ft. space is $65 or a double space (12x24) is $100. After January 1, 2019 the rates will be $75 for a single 12x12 space and $125 for a double (12x24) space. If you register a fellow artist to sell their creations at the same time, you will each get a single booth for $50.00 (early registration). After January 1, the rate will be $60 each.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit so all of your fees for this event go directly into the scholarship fund. Please send your fee along with your application either by December 31, 2018 or no later than May 31, 2019. Please send booth photos with your applications so we can avoid duplicates of your crafts.
To help us raise additional funds for scholarships, we ask that each vendor donate one item that can be offered at a raffle table during the event. We will provide you with the appropriate tax documentation for your donations.
We look forward to another outstanding event in 2019. For more information send an email to [email protected] or call John Ford at 508-769-0041 or Marge Fischer at 978-407-4824. Please visit our website at www.bit.ly/erfscholarship to learn more about Estelle and our activities.
