Fantasy in the Forest takes place in the woods 30 Kms north of Kingston Ontario and 30 Kms South of Westport. We have held the Summer show on the third weekend in July for 23 years and this year the show will be July 16 and 17 from 10 to 5. This will be the first year for the Thanksgiving weekend show and it will run on the Saturday Sunday and Monday. We are slowly creating a fantasy village by creating whimsical buildings but most Artists are using pop up canopys in a 10 x 10 space. There is no hydro on site. Most spaces have a little extra room around them to spread out. Artists are asked to dress in some kind of costume,the theme can be faerie,Alice in wonderland ,steam punk or even just an outrageous hat. At the close of the show on Saturday we host a mad hatters tea party pot luck for the artists.There will be a $250 costume prize chosen by the artists as well as a on site treasure hunt for $250. These cash prizes are in the form of show money which can be spent in he following day at the show. We have food available to purchase at the show and we have live music throughout the weekend.
Booth cost for the July is $250 if paid before February 28th or $300 afterwards. Attendance is only an estimate since we do not charge a gate fee to the show but we had around 2000 last year and we expect that to rise this year with having a larger advertising budget. We expect to have 60 or more artists this year.
Booth fee for the fall will be $250 as well and wil be due in August
We organize the show but we are full time artists who have done large craft shows for over thirty years. We are trying to run the Fantasy show with the artist community in mind. We want it to be a gathering of creative individuals to make sales for sure but what we consider a big part of the show is the social aspect. The pot luck is a chance to network and relax that most shows just don't offer. We also sponsor an emerging Artist each year.
If you would like to exhibit at the show please send 6 jpegs or a link to where we can view your work.
