When is the next Big Crafty?
Sunday, December 4, 2016 at the U.S. Cellular Center in downtown Asheville.
Is this a juried show?
It is juried and it is competitive.
How do I apply?
Via our online application form.
Any dates or deadlines I should know about?
You can check our calendar, and even subscribe to it!
What is the vendor fee?
$95 ($115 for shared booths)
How many vendors will be accepted?
We have room for approximately 150-200 artists.
What if I need a refund?
Your $10 application fee is non-refundable. For those facing hardships, we will refund the vendor fee in full prior to the final payment deadline. After that date, we’ll be counting on your participation and will not be able to refund vendor fees. Please note also that if the event is cancelled due to national knitting needle shortage or any other events beyond The Big Crafty’s control, we will not be able to refund your booth fee.
What should I bring?
Please bring whatever you need for your setup, including tables and chairs, unless you have made rental arrangements.
Can I share a booth?
Yes, but each participant should apply separately and indicate an intention to share. There is an additional $20 fee for shared booths.
Is this an indoor event?
Our December event is inside at the US Cellular Center.
Where will my booth be?
Accepted vendors will have the opportunity to indicate preferred areas, and we’ll accommodate requests as space allows. Placement maps will be sent prior to the event.
Will electricity be available?
Electrical connections are available through the venue for an additional fee.
Will team Big Crafty be able to help me unload/pack up?
Sorry, no. We’ll be attending to event-wide set up and clean up. It is your responsibility to set up/break down your booth and belongings. No trace of your set-up should be left behind.
There is a parking garage adjacent to the event venue, and on Sundays there are NO METER FEES, which helps us all out and encourages shoppers to be downtown, too!
