Our goal is to offer a variety of original arts and crafts in the Marketplace. Entries are judged primarily, though not strictly, on quality, marketability and originality. All artwork must be the original handmade work of the artist. Only mediums listed on the application and approved by Decatur Holiday Marketplace can be sold during the show.
Previous inclusion in the Marketplace does not guarantee future selection.
This is an in-person event only this year. We will not be offering the Online Market.
At the time of notification, the appropriate (tax deductible) Booth Fee will be due.
