After the most recent season that saw attendance increases at every one of its shows and artist sales increase by as much as 23 percent, Sugarloaf Craft Festivals is accepting applications from artists and craftspeople in all media for its spring 2013 shows.
The show schedule is as follows:

Sugarloaf says it invests all exhibitor booth fees in the promotion and production of each show and artists are supported with an aggressive marketing and advertising program. Other benefits to artists at Sugarloaf shows include free VIP tickets for artists to distribute to their best customers and discounts for artists at hotels convenient to show venues. Artists can receive discounts on booth fees with flexible payment options.
