The first Milltown Artisan Fair will bring a select group of 20 artisans, makers and artists together for a one-day fair in the comfortable, attractive, accessible and convenient West End space at Eastworks, right at the start of the holiday shopping season. 

There is no fee to apply for consideration. The fair is juried by members of the local arts community to create a marketplace featuring high-quality, original handmade goods and art. We are not accepting applications from vendors of manufactured or mass-produced goods nor sellers of vintage goods, although artisans who repurpose vintage materials in their work are welcome to apply.

Submitting an application for review does not guarantee acceptance into the Milltown Artisan Fair. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by October 1 and will submit payment of the registration fee and participation contract by no later than October 7. 

The participation fee is $50. The usable space in each participant’s designated area is 8’ x 8.’ A metal folding chair belonging to the venue is available at no additional charge to each participant. Participants agree to provide their own display furniture that fits strictly within the designated area. A limited (10) number of folding tables (8’ long by 30” wide) are available (additional fee of $10). A limited (8) number of spaces have access to electrical outlets (additional fee of $10). 

Marketing commences October 8 and includes outreach in print, physical and online formats. The fair’s organizer, Marjory Zaik, has a wealth of marketing and event production experience in the local arts and business community, including the annual Eastworks Open Studios event. 

We look forward to receiving your application and to making the fair a rewarding experience for our participants and our guests.
