Art & Craft Fair

A staple of our free festival, is the open air market. Our market showcases art and craft vendors from all over the area, plus a flea market and commercial vendors such Avon, Scentsy, and Tupperware.

The fair opens at 10:00am until about 3:00pm. The last few years, we’ve had between 20 and 40 vendors spread out around the event grounds.

Your payment and a copy of your Wisconsin Department of Revenue Form S-240 are due with this application in order to reserve your space.
