The 13th annual Driftless Area Art Festival will be held on September 16-17, 2017 in Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin. We sincerely hope that you will want to be a part—again or for the first time—of this exciting event.
The festival is set in a park by the Kickapoo River in Soldiers Grove, where parking is free and convenient to your booth. We have a robust promotional campaign to draw the buying public, including print and radio advertising, articles, post cards, posters, web listings and social media postings. We love our artists, and will support you with booth sitters and energetic volunteers. And our signature artist-sponsor-volunteer reception on Saturday evening will let you get to know your fellow artists and the people who make the festival possible.
This year we will once again limit the number of exhibitors to 80. Find the 2017 Application form here: 2017 DAAF Application Package.
Please heed the registration deadline of March 15. We will jury all applicants in a single session, assuring quality and a good mix of media. Submissions received after this date will be juried for inclusion on a space available basis and a $20 late fee will be in effect for submitting after the official deadline. We will continue both our policy on prints, which balances our goal of maintaining a fine art offering with the ability to provide affordable art to the public, and our policy on jewelry, which encourages handmade elements over simple assembly. Please read the 2017 Exhibitor Guidelines.
Public hours will be Saturday 10:00-5:00 and Sunday 10:00-4:00.
