Click here for 2017 GAAF artist application! Qualified applications are processed in order of submission, within category. (For example: we fill and close the jewelry category 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.)

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.
