Call for Entries: BAYarts Art & Music Festival

BAYarts' Annual Art & Music Festival gets bigger and better every year as the demand and appreciation for locally made goods continues to grow. Last year, hundreds of visitors attended the daylong event for local art, live music and great food. 

On June 13, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the festival kicks off BAYarts' summer of fun, including the free summer concert series, art camps and the new farmers market. To assure quality and variety, artists who submit applications will be reviewed by a panel for originality and craftsmanship.  

The idea for the festival grew in response to other festivals with high entry fees that made it prohibitive for many struggling artists to sell their work. The fee is still below average, but the success and quality of the festival has drawn artists from other festivals who like its organic nature, friendly shoppers and beautiful setting.

In addition to local art, the event features live music, local food, community groups and services. The Bay Village Green Team has partnered with BAYarts to make it a zero-waste event and educational presence for the environmentally conscious.
