Art Star Pop Up at 2nd Street Fest Application

Please apply to EITHER the Art Star Pop Up Market here OR the general 2nd Street Festival found at  DO NOT APPLY TO BOTH.  If you are not accepted to our pop up market, we can forward your application to 2nd Street Festival. (please note that the general festival application may not be up yet)

The Art Star Pop Up Market is a block within the 2nd Street Festival that is curated by Art Star and focuses solely on handmade shopping.  We are primarily looking for artists & crafters who create handmade, original work.  However, we are open to products that are designed by the artist & produced in small quantities within the U.S.  All mediums are welcome. The event is held outdoors & each participant will be provided with a 10’ x 10’ space.  Participants are required to bring a tent and everything that is needed for set up & display.  There is no access to electricity on our block at this event.

All accepted vendors are required to have insurance and provide Art Star / 2nd St Festival with a COI in order to participate. We will be setting up a policy for the event that you can easily purchase through ACT Insurance if you do not already have an insurance carrier.

If you would like to share a space and have someone in mind you must specify the name of your desired booth mate when applying.  Both of you must be accepted in order to share a space.  If your requested booth mate is not accepted, and you are, we will offer you your own 10’ x 10’ space.

If you would like to share a space, but do not have a booth mate in mind, we will do our best to pair you up with someone.  We can’t guarantee a booth mate, and in the event you are accepted and we don’t have someone to pair you up with, we will offer you a full space. We do not allow more than 2 people to share a space.

Please note that if not accepted to the art star market block, and you’d like your application forwarded to the general festival, the general festival does NOT offer booth shares.

We will be communicating with you via email only.  Check your emails (spam & promotions folders) regularly for updates.
