This application is available for your completion and is due 2.1.2024. We are proud to say that we were awarded Sunshine Artist’s “200 Best for 2022 (2021, 2019, 2018)". We have always been told we are one of the best in the Midwest and pride ourselves in being a truly juried show. In order to maintain a successful show, each applicant’s work will be juried by the Saline Craft Show Committee annually, and the number of participants in each craft category will be limited. Five (5) close up pictures of the craft items and one (1) of the booth setup are required with the application. Strive for quality prints, as these photos will represent your work and be the basis for the jurying evaluation. We encourage pictures that visually display the quality, variety and uniqueness of your products. If accepted to the show, pictures will be returned on the day of the show; otherwise, pictures will be returned with the letter of denial. Slides are NOT recommended as a substitution. Pictures featuring several craft products are also not recommended, as they fail to show the detail or specific features of the items. Additional pictures beyond the required minimum may be sent and any additional information regarding your product line is encouraged. Manufactured or "buy-sell" items are not acceptable, and crafters who display this type of item will be eliminated from the show and not be invited back. Jurying occurs both at the time of application and during the show. Please complete all sections of the application accurately and completely. In addition, please review all contractual statements regarding electrical use, parking, subleasing booths and product line acceptance. Violations that affect the quality of the show or safety of customers and crafters alike have occurred in the past and will not be tolerated.

Amenities for our customers include rest areas, concession stand and free parking in adjacent lots. There will also be free shuttle busses running from local parking areas to the Saline Area Schools Campus for customer use. The facility is completely handicap accessible. Strollers will not be permitted during the show hours. A $5 admission fee will be charged as each patron enters. Boothsitting (on Saturday) and unloading assistance (Friday and Saturday) will be available for crafters. We will list email addresses and website links in the program and as links from our website. This option provides additional crafter exposure and, because of the expansion of the program in the past years, will be utilized for publicity purposes before the show and for reference purposes after the show.
