Q: How are artists chosen for Festifall?

We value inclusion. We believe that Arts and culture are for the many, not the few. We embrace diversity and advance equity within our community and the world. Artists are selected with that in mind.

For artists with less experience, some “scholarship” booths are available in the Arts & Crafts Market. They will have their fee waived and will be paired with a mentor.
