SRP Artist Fair
Hello local artists!

The Allen County Public Library is pleased to announce we are hosting our second annual Artist Fair on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 11-3 at the Main Library in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.

We look forward to giving you the opportunity to display, discuss, and sell your work. This is a great time to connect with your community during the popular festival season that welcomes thousands of visitors to the downtown area.  

Interested? Click here to register, and please note the following:

  • A $25 placeholder fee is required to secure your spot.
  • You must have art available for purchase.
  • You are asked to donate 10% of sales to ACPL’s Friends of the Library.
  • The registration deadline is April 1.


We are also looking for artists to present a lecture or run a workshop, so please use the registration form to let us know you’d like to be involved. Last year’s programs ranged from musical performance to jewelry making.

Hope you can join us this summer!

    Hello, I registered in time. Should I be worried I haven't from you folks yet?

    I'm sorry, registration is closed.  We hope you'll still come and explore the fair's displays this year.

    Looks like I missed the deadline. Any chance I can still register?

    Hi Maeve,

    You need at least one piece of artwork available for sale, however, we encourage you to have more.  Last year, the most successful participants had a good selection of items available for sale at an affordable price.

    how many artworks/prints to sell are required for minimum?
  7. Becky K | Mar 20, 2018
    All ages may participate but we'll need written permission from her parent or legal guardian.

    Are 4 year olds allowed because she's really good?

    Thanks for your question, Valerie!  The fair will be inside; tables and chairs will be provided.  We're also providing lunch for participating artists!

    is this fair inside or outside? Do the artists need to provide a tent?

    You may display as many pieces as you want.  If you have multiple pieces, some may be for display only, but some must be for sale.  The fee is just a placeholder -- it will be reimbursed to you the day of the fair. 

    Hope this helps!  Please let us know if you have other questions.

    Thanks for your question!  All ages may participate but if you are under 18 years old, we'll need written permission from your parent or legal guardian.

    wondering how many pieces for the $25 fee can be displayed and what does "you must have art available for sale" mean? Each displayed piece would be for sale?ormore than that.
