This Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest is only made possible by the time and effort of countless volunteers. If you add it up over 15 years, there have been tens of thousands of hours invested in this grassroots artists' fest!
Please complete the volunteer application if you're available to help with this year's Fest for a few hours anytime from Friday, August 19 through Sunday, August 21, 2016.
We're pleased to welcome participants from the waiting list who will be able to present at this year's Fest! The Fest map has been updated to reflect these new additions.
The 2015 GAAF Fest Map has been released. Scout the locations of your favorite artists from previous years.
Grab a printed copy of the map in the day-of-event guide at sponsoring venues and the Fest information booth located at the intersection of Morse & Glenwood. The guide includes the entertainment lineup for all three stages.
The Fest committee will complete the puzzle of assigning artists to locations this weekend. Check back next week for the Fest's day-of-event guide with a complete list of participating artists and a map of their booth locations.
15 days to go until the Fest!
The 2015 Glenwood Ave Arts Fest Artist Application is now available to the public.
The application was sent out last week to previous participants and we've filled a little more than 75% of the available booths in the last week.
If you've been considering participating, now's your chance. Complete the online application and watch for the first round of acceptance notifications to go out on May 11.
We look forward to seeing some new artists this year!
Remember: Fest rules require that all new artist applicants exhibit work that is personally made by the exhibiting artist.
Applications are processed in order of submission, within category. (For example: we fill and close the jewelry category very quickly due to the number of applicants, whereas a category like sculpture may have availability all the way until the last Fest booth is assigned. The wait-list is processed in the same fashion.)
Artist applications for the 2015 Glenwood Ave Arts Fest were emailed on Friday to all previously exhibiting artists, as well as those wait-listed in previous years.
This year's application must be completed online.
The application will be opened to the general public this coming Friday, April 24, 2015. Last year, over 115 artists were able to exhibit!
Check back here for the link. We hope to see you at the Fest.
The 2014 Glenwood Ave Arts Fest has expanded to include over 150 artist booths this year! The Fest moves westward along Morse Ave. toward the Mayne Stage at the corner of Morse Ave & N. Wayne.
