BOOTH SPACE & INSTALLATION
To request a particular location, be sure to apply before September 1, 2022. Volunteers get the first choice of location. We cannot guarantee that all requests will be honored but will consider them on a first-come basis. Booth size is 10 feet x 10 feet. The BJBBCR/Fall Art & Artisan Show coordinators provide only the space. Artists are responsible for their own tents, weights, racks, walls, etc. All show registrants are expected to be ready for business at 10:00 a.m. and staff their booth through 4:00 p.m. Tents are required to display due to the nature of this show in order to protect the artwork from any form of precipitation. Only the Fall Art & Artisan Show Coordinators can dismiss artists due to inclement weather; artists are not permitted to leave early and must be open for business for the entire length of the show. Due to the underground sprinkler system, stakes are NOT allowed to secure tents. Any violation of securing tents will be immediate expulsion from the show. Parking for artists is available across the street and side streets after load-in, but parking on Concord Street is reserved for show visitors. No vehicles are allowed on the grass at any time.
Refunds for cancellations, less a Thirty Dollar ($30.00) processing fee, will be issued up to forty-five (45) days prior to show date. Cancellations must be made in writing (email preferred) and received in our offices as per the dates outlined above. In this case, September 1, 2022 would be considered the deadline date for the BJBBCR/Fall Art & Artisan
Show to receive the cancellation notice. If the show cancels due to any unforeseen circumstances, all booth fees and option fees will be fully refunded. Jury fees will NOT be refunded.
The Fall Art & Artisan Show is held outdoors and goes on rain or shine. No credits or refunds will be issued if the show is affected by forces of nature beyond our control. Please check the facebook page for Betty J Borry Breast Cancer Retreats or contact the coordinators at Lboss@bjbbreastcancerretreats.org for updates on cancellations resulting from severe weather such as hurricanes, tornados, flooding, etc. Please note, we will not cancel a show unless informed by state, city or local officials that it will be in the best interest of safety for all. If it looks like it is going to rain, we will not call a show prior to the event. It will be at the show coordinator’s discretion on site at the time.
Exhibitors are present at our show for the purpose of representing their work. For that reason, no exhibit, or their representatives, will engage in any type of solicitation of any products, supplies, etc. during the course of the show. Failure to comply could cause possible expulsion from the show.
