Vendor Information


FESTIVAL DATES: Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1, 2024.

FESTIVAL HOURS: The event will be open to the public 10am-5pm Saturday (August 31) and 11am-5pm Sunday (September 1). Artists are expected to remain through the duration. Art in the Park is a RAIN OR SHINE event. 

LODGING: Please contact the SAAC office if you would like information on area lodging options.

SET-UP TIME: Artists may arrive to set up booths only on Friday evening, August 30 from 5-7 pm. Enter the park via the entrance off Thornrose Avenue and check in at SAAC’s information tent. We will have an Artist’s Packet ready for you upon your arrival and your booth placement will be assigned at that time. [Sorry – no trading or booth location changes allowed!]  If you have any special requests, every effort will be made to fulfill that request  

FESTIVAL REGISTRATION:   Saturday check-in  begins at 6:30am. We ask that you unload your vehicle as quickly as possible and move to vendor parking no later than 9:30am Saturday morning.  


VENDOR PARKING: Vendors may park in the Armory Parking Lot adjacent to the park. The use of handicapped spaces for handicapped licenses is strictly enforced by the City of Staunton.


JUDGING: Judging will take place on Saturday morning beginning around 10:30am. In order for a booth to be judged, the booth label (provided in your packet upon arrival) must be visible. More information about prize awards will be announced later this summer.


TAXES: please note that Virginia sales tax (5.3%) is required on all sales.  It is each vendor's responsibility to report and pay taxes. The City of Staunton requires and collects business license fees.  If you have a current City of Staunton business license, you are set.  If you don't have a current City of Staunton business license, you must be added to the Art Center's business license for this event only.  Be prepared to provide your individual SSN or business EIN  during the check in process before the event opens.  


SECURITY: while the Art Center arranges some security, it accepts no responsibility for the safety and security of participants and their artwork. Vendors are expected to display their work under a tent. All tents and canopies must be secured against strong winds (heavy block or window weights work well).
