Call for Artisans: June First Friday Craft Fair

First Friday-Artisan Craft Fair-Call for artists-banner


On June 3rd Allentown First Fridays will be hosting the 3rd Annual outdoor Artisan Craft Fair and we are seeking artists and crafters to set up tables to sell their merchandise.


From 6-9 pm Allen Street between Franklin and Virginia Place will be closed to traffic and we will fill the street with vendors of all sorts of handmade goods. We hope you will join us in a night of food, music, art and fun!


The cost for participation is $40 which will cover the cost of a vendors permit and will secure you a 10’x10′ space (enough to provide space for a standard 10’x10′ EZ up tent). We CANNOT provide tents, tables or chairs, we will do our best to help you locate one should this infringe on your ability to participate, but we cannot guarantee them.


Interested vendors can apply by sending the following information to


  • Your name
  • Business name
  • Postal mailing address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Website (if you have one)
  • 3-5 images of your work. Images should be at least 4″ x 6″ at 300dpi and in .jpg format as we will be using selected pieces for publicity purposes.


Please also give a brief description of the work you plan to sell at the event (i.e. prints, clothing, ceramics, handbags, paintings, jewelry, etc.) as well as materials used and/or processes used. Be sure to include any details that might give a better understanding of the work (sustainable practices etc…)


DEADLINE EXTENSION: Applications are due by 5pm Wednesday, April 15th, selected vendors will be notified via email on or near April 22nd and the $40 fee is due by May 6th.


Please note that all vendors are solely responsible for obtaining and tracking all sales tax related to the sale of their merchandise.
