2022 Online Booth Application For Non-Members

You do not need to be a Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council Member to have a Booth at the Blueberry Arts Festival!!!! However, being a member helps sustain the Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council (KAAHC) enabling us to bring you wonderful programming and events like the 47th Annual Blueberry Arts Festival,  Art Walks, Story SLAMs and the Wearable Art Show!!! There are so many benefits to membership. One benefit is a reduced booth fee. The other is the opportunity to share a booth. If you would like to share a Booth with another Vendor at the Blueberry Arts Festival  ALL applicants must be members. You may not share a booth if you are not members of the KAAHC. If you would like to become a KAAHC member and/or share a booth please follow this link to the 2022 BOOTH Application for Members!

ALL BOOTHS HOLDERS:

The 47th Annual Blueberry Arts Festival is an outdoor festival. We have the festival in the wind, rain, and beautiful sunshine!!!
Please be prepared for anything.

  • You may start setting up at 6:00 am, Saturday morning, August 6th, 2022. It is important to unload your vehicle and remove it from the street quickly. This reduces congestion and allows other booth vendors to do the same. Go park your car FAR AWAY, and then come back to your booth site and set up. All cars must be off the street by 8:00 am! 
  • Streets will be closed to all traffic and parking at 8:00 am! All cars must be removed by this time.
  • Please be set up and be ready by 10:00 am, Saturday, August 6th. 
  • We hope to have a free shuttle service running between the Plaza Mall and Blueberry Arts Festival, from 10:30 am. until 4:00 pm. This shuttle is ADA accessible and is available to everyone.
  • By an overwhelming response to our 2019 Blueberry Arts Festival survey cards, we are requesting all booth holders make a conscious effort to reduce their plastic use. There should be no Styrofoam at the Festival this year. KAAHC will not have helium or balloons.
  • KAAHC would appreciate small donations for the Annual Raffle for the ARTS annual fundraising event. KAAHC will accept and appreciates stickers, earrings, magnets, gift certificates, coupons, or other small items for the raffle ticket envelopes. KAAHC Raffle tickets are sold through January and are drawn at the Wearable Art Show Saturday performance. 
  • All Booths must stay open until 5:00 pm! You may not pack up early. It is not permissible to begin breakdown before the Festival ends at 5:00 pm! You will not be invited back if you pack up, or leave your booth before 5:00 pm! If there is an emergency, please let us know what is going on we can help!
  • If you sell out of your inventory, Congratulations!!! However, your booth must remain open (see above.). Vendors in years past have used this time to network, share business cards, sell gift certificates, display photo albums, and take orders. We appreciate your cooperation and encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity and celebrate your success.
  • The Streets will not reopen until 5:30 pm. You have time to start packing up before you go get your car.

STAY POSITIVE!!  ENJOY THE DAY!!!
