Each year, the Fourth Street Festival of the Arts & Crafts provides space to Non­ Profit Arts Organizations to promote and inform the public about their activities and to distribute promotional literature. Space is available to any nonprofit group devoted to an arts activity or discipline including public broadcasting, community arts centers and public or private school arts groups,
bands and choruses.

The Festival will be held on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, September 2nd from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Sunday, September 3rd from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Set-up time begins approximately at 8:00AM. 

Please feel free to call Casey on her cell phone: (812) 361-3735 if you have any concerns. She will be at the show the entire time.
Assignment is on a first come, first served basis to qualified organizations. Approximately 32 spaces are available and are subject to change based on closures or construction. 

Arts organizations are encouraged to sign up patrons for classes, activities and volunteer opportunities. Sales of performance tickets, arts classes or memberships are not permitted. All materials available to the public must be free and descriptive of your organization and its activities. Please regard your participation in the festival as information-giving rather than money making.

No sales are permitted of inventory, merchandise or literature.

Arts exhibitors must provide their own tables, chairs, sunshades, tents and decor. The design of your space is up to you. Please consider that you are presenting your organization to the public and your display should be as informative, neat and attractive as possible.

Fourth Street Festival of the Arts and Crafts requires a commercially manufactured 1O' x 1O'tent capable of withstanding 25 mph sustained winds and a 40 pound weight attached to each tent leg. Side flaps are also recommended. If you are purchasing a new tent, we prefer that it be white.

Electricity is not provided at the Festival.

The use of recorded music is only permitted between live performances at the nearby music stage or and as long as it does not interfere with neighboring booths.


Security is provided for Saturday night so that booth structures can remain in place but we cannot guarantee the safety of items left overnight. After your application is submitted, you will be receiving an invitation via email with additional recommendations and information regarding storage and event reminders.
