Dear Artists,

 The Chadds Ford Historical Society invites you to apply to our 46th annual Chadds Ford Days Fair to be held Saturday and Sunday, September 10 & 11, 2011.

The Fair is held in the meadow adjacent to the Historical Society’s Barn on Creek Road (Old Route 100) in Chadds Ford, 1/4 mile north of US Route 1. There will be advance publicity in all media: newspapers, radio, television and magazines. Fair hours are Saturday and Sunday  10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

There are three ways to exhibit your art:

1) Bring Your own tent . We offer a 12x12 space for your 10X10 tent  - so you have plenty of room.  Two artists may share a tent.  At least one person must be present to represent the art.
No commissions on sales.

 2) Rent a tent. - we contract with a professional tent company and pass the savings of a large group rental along to you. This is a particularly nice option for artists who typically sell in galleries or do not want the  hassle of putting up a tent. You can bring your own panels or rent wire walls from the CFHS. Two artists may share a space. At least one person must be present to represent the art. No commissions on sales.

3) the CFHS gallery space- where artists can submit up to three  paintings, we hang them for you in the CFHS gallery tent and volunteers sell your work. Hence, you do NOT need to be present to sell your work. There is a hanging fee of $20 per painting, $35 for 2 and $40 for 3. Size restrictions apply.
There is a 20% commission on all sales.

 Cost: Booth spaces are only $155  this year. Registration and jurying  is $30 for new artists. If you participated in CFDays 2010 or are a member of MAPAPA, the registration fee is waived.

Checks or CC are excepted.
