This festive event regularly attracts 5,000 to 6,000 shoppers during the three-day run. The Scottish Rite Center venue is a single story building with rooms for our exhibitors and lots of free parking and easy access for our exhibitors and shoppers! All work must be original and hand-crafted by the artist and no mass produced or production studio work is allowed. Please call if you are unsure if your work qualifies, (916) 747-3266. Artists are encouraged to be “out front and center” in order to engage and educate attendees.

We use a “booth-fee-plus-commission format” and will be utilizing the ZAPP online application system. Booth fees vary by size, and corner booths are available for an additional fee. Individual artists will be responsible for processing their own sales and collecting and paying sales tax.

We are an artist-friendly event with a large volunteer staff and strong marketing program that delivers an educated, “fine craft” buying audience:

• Friday morning setup is 7am-Noon with free coffee & pastries from 8am-Noon
• Volunteer staff for booth sitting
• Overnight on-site security guard
• Artist information included in show program booklet and Crocker Holiday Artisan Market Website.

Only online applications will be accepted. A non-refundable application fee of $15 is to be made online, on or after APRIL 1 at ZAPP. Artists accepted into the show will then be requested to mail the booth fee in a single check made out to “CALS” plus a separate check for $75 if a corner space is requested. The $75 corner fee will be returned if corners are not available.

Artists can purchase 6’ x 8’, 8’ x10’ and 10’ x10’ booths plus premium corner locations (limited). Our event is a “booth fee, plus commission” format. Commission is limited to 15% of sales up to $4,000. No commission is charged on sales exceeding $4,000. Individual artists are responsible for processing their own sales and collecting and paying sales tax.

Attractive booths and lighting are very important but this is an older building and low wattage bulbs are required. Open-top booths are preferred when possible.

6’ x 8’ = $165 (plus 15% commission up to $4,000 of sales)
8’ x 10’ = $260 (plus 15% commission up to $4,000 of sales)
10’ x 10’ = $315 (plus 15% commission up to $4,000 of sales)
Corner Booth premium: $75
