Call to Artists

20th Annual Rocky Ripple Festival

Saturday, September 28, 2019
11:00 to 6:00

Greetings to all Artists and Artisans. You are invited to participate in the 2019 Rocky Ripple Festival of the Arts for a full day of art, music, and food in a unique Indianapolis north side neighborhood.

This popular festival is held in Rocky Ripple Hohlt Park, 840 W. 53rd St. (across the Canal near Butler University).  The Festival is free to the public.

The intent of the Rocky Ripple Festival is to showcase arts and crafts produced by artisans from the Indiana region.  This is not a juried show, but the Rocky Ripple Community Association reserves the right to exclude any exhibit the committee feels is not appropriate for our venue and will generally reject work not designed and produced by the exhibitor.  In the interest of showing a variety of media, we will impose a quota on any category that is becoming over represented. Applications are accepted in the order in which they are received. Early applicants have the best chance of being included in the show. Any artist excluded because of a filled quota may elect to be placed on the wait list.

Guideline for artists:
Early bird registration fee for a 10’ by 10’ individual space is $75.00 until July 31st.  The cost thereafter is $100.00.
Early bird registration for shared 10’ by 10’ booth is $100.00 until July 31st.The cost thereafter is $120.00
 Exhibitors must provide their own display tents and these are the responsibility of the vendor.
Tables are available to rent for $10.00. Supplies limited so order soon.
There will be approximately sixty-six 10’ X 10’ booth spaces available.

Note to artists sharing a booth space:
Artists may share booths but must apply individually. If you will be sharing a booth space with one or more artists the shared booth space cost will total $100.00 if postmarked by July 31st , or $120.00 if postmarked after July 31st. Each artist planning to share one booth space must fill out their own copy of the “Exhibiter Application Form”.  Please use the form marked Shared Booth. Please be sure to include the names of all other exhibitors with whom you will be sharing a space. Each artist should describe only their own artwork on their application. You may combine the shared booth cost and send one check or divide the total amount and send separate checks. Please mark your check memo “Shared Booth” It will be very helpful if you can send all of the application material in one envelope. Please feel free to contact Megan Wright if you have any questions.

We will feature a festival page on our website with the names and websites of artists as they register. Your description of your work will appear on the web site. Please allow a couple of weeks for your listing to appear.
