Please share this info with your fellow artists and makers who might want to sell their artwork at OFFCenter’s Folk Art Festival.

  • The Folk Art Festival supports our local artist community by offering low-cost opportunities for showcasing your art. The festival is a continuing part of our regular outreach programming supported by volunteers to enhance the lives of our artistic community and is not a fundraising event for OFFCenter.
  • The Folk Art Festival is to support you — the artists, musicians, performers and to bring your affordable art (for your benefit and profit) and to present local talent free-to-the-public to culturally enhance all participants’ and attendees’ lives.
  • Our Booth Fees are only $50 and our event brings in 1500 – 2000 people.
  • If you have any questions about selling at the Folk Art Festival, please do not hesitate to call OFFCenter @ 505-247-1172
