ARTIST INFORMATION

The Saratoga Springs Arts District, Inc, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, in collaboration with Saratoga Arts is seeking artists and artisans to participate in a one-day street fair on Beekman Street in the Saratoga Arts District on Sunday June 14th, 2020.  This event serves as a kick-off to the summer season in Saratoga and is heavily promoted and marketed to a wide range of local and northeast-region art patrons.  

If you are an artist who was accepted to participate in 2019, you are automatically invited to participate in 2020 without going through the jury process. Please register online and pay booth fee of $75 by January 25. Booth fees will increase to $85 after that date and we cannot guarantee there will be a spot available since we will be inviting newly juried artists to fill available openings. Submit your non-refundable online payment using the “Accepted Applicants” button below.

Each exhibitor will be assigned a 10 x 10 space along the western side of Beekman Street. White display tents are strongly recommended in case of inclement weather and to keep the look of the show unified.  This family-friendly event will also feature children and adult makers’ spaces under the big tent on Ash and Beekman, live music and an open mic program, roaming street performers, and specialty food trucks.  Our previous events on Beekman have been very successful- artists report strong sales, knowledgeable patrons, and good follow-up sales and contacts. We are hoping to build on this event each year, making it the kick-off art event of the summer season in Saratoga. Thank you for your interest in being a part of it.

If you prefer to pay booth fee by check instead of online, send in your check by Jan 25th with the signed contract (page 2.) Download and print the forms here: BSAF 2020 artist application
