At the heart of the Festival are 270 booth artisans who fill seven blocks from 3rd Street to 10th Street on Commercial Ave. These artists come from throughout the Northwest and as far away as New York, Florida and Arizona. Each year they are chosen through a selection process based on quality, originality and marketability.
Also featured is ink alley, an indie craft area located on the east side of 6th Street at Commercial Avenue.
The most popular booth artists are preselected to return. See our Preselected Booth Artisans page for sample product images from these talented individuals. After booth assignments in May we will have a complete listing of participating Booth Artisans and individual Booth Maps for specific locations.
Last year several Booth Artisans were recognized with $3,600 in awards. See all the Award Winners for 2014.
