10-2 on Broadway at the Bay

The Artisanal Fair and Bay Picnic are back! Once again, we will come together as a community to celebrate the rich and varied talents of our neighbors, and the abundance of summer memories with our families and friends.

Local Artists selling art, crafts, and jewelry along Broadway. Children selling crafts and baked goods in wagons by the Gazebo. Festive lunch and live music by local musicians on the Saltaire Market deck.

Categories include:

HOMEMADE HOME Section 1:

(Frames, mirrors, boxes, vases, candles - any hard goods that are useful)

HOMEMADE HOME Section 2:

FINE ART: (paintings, sculpture - anything whose main purpose is decorative)

BEST BAKED FROM SCRATCH: (no box mixes here!)

MOST CREATIVE FOOD PRESENTATION (foods of all kinds)

CULINARY WILDCARD:

NEW TO THE WAGON SALE AND NEED MORE DETAILS?

Make your stuff at home with your parents (parental supervision is ok, but it’s a kid project). To be included in the contest your goods must be handmade, and not entirely from a kit. Load your wares onto a wagon - nice presentation impresses the judges! Bring your wagon to Broadway near the Gazebo after 9:30. Judges will begin circulating at 10, but it's a good idea to set aside a small portion of food (just a few bites) for each of the 3 judges. If you want your crafts to be judged, then don’t let a buyer take them from your wagon before the judges arrive. Take pictures of your wagon as it appeared at set up so we can see it at it’s finest. You might want to have a Venmo account to accept payment from those attending the Fair.

Note: We may award multiple trophies in a single category for different ages, we may see what creative things have been made and add categories on the fly, and we may not have a winner for every category. Judges discretion so bring your most creative ideas!
