We love our dogs too! But No! With the obvious exception of Certified Service Animals, please leave your dogs at home. The backstory on this policy is that, years back, we allowed dogs and experienced several dog fights on the grounds as well as a child that was bitten by a stranger dog. We then changed the policy to allow dogs in the outdoor area but not inside the tents. Unfortunately, many patrons did not follow this rule and we had multiple exhibitors report that dogs were relieving themselves in their booths on their art and so on. So, for reasons of safety and respect for property, we finally had to make a firm policy that only service animals are allowed.
Children 14 and under have a FREE admission price into the Festival. However, if there are occasional providers of special activities such as bounce house zone or pony rides or a craft tent, these providers may charge their own individual prices for their services.
Tickets are available for sale at the Gate — cash only; however, we will have an ATM on site. It never hurts to remind everyone that, at the end of the day, we are operating in a field in Vermont, so the ATM does occasionally go off-line!
ALSO, starting in 2022 for the first time, we are selling tickets in advance, online at EVENTBRITE! Note that tickets purchased in advance are non-refundable but transferrable (meaning you may email your Eventbrite confirmation to a friend or print and give them away). Be prepared to have us check you in through Eventbrite Organizer app at the gate by having either your printed ticket or your phone opened to the confirmation email for your tickets. If you purchase tickets in advance, feel free to jump to the front of the line to check in.
GUEST WHAT ELSE? For every 100 tickets we sell on Eventbrite, we will select one of the buyers at random and email them a PAIR of complimentary tickets that they can pass on to a friend. What a great way to gather more family and friends to join us all at the Festival.
All exhibitors at the Festival, including Food Vendors, are independent contractors. Most accept credit cards and some may also accept checks, depending upon their individual policies.
Yes. So far, we have never had to close a day at our Vermont shows due to weather, and we have had some serious rain at times over the years. The large Camelot tents are like being inside as far as protection from the elements.
Great! Please go our Exhibitor Website, which is www.craftproducers.com to find information and applications. Or, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office during office hours at 802.316.5019.

It’s all here on the website under the respective menus. Please note that when we have late applicants or last minute changes, the details may change. However, for a period of time before and after the show, you should be able to check the Art & Craft Exhibitors page for photos and links for your favorite Artisans.

Smoking is allowed outside the tents, and we know our audience is such that they would not litter the grounds with their debris and instead use the trashcans all over the site. This has not been an issue for us up to now.
The Festival is on grass on a level section of the field and we have a handicapped parking area at the front which the parking attendants should direct you to. In the past we have had no problems accommodating patrons in wheelchairs or scooters; however, in the event of really rainy weather and mud, that could potentially be more difficult. In such cases we plan for putting down wood chips and closing the sides of the tents. Otherwise, there is plenty of aisle space for navigating inside the tents, on the grounds around the outdoor booths, and in the dining tent.
No! The live music is FREE inside the dining tent. Grab your lunch and enjoy the bands in the comfort of the large tent or outside if weather is nice.
Yes! Our Vermont shows always have FREE parking in the field where the venue is.
At our Vermont shows, we like to pay the extra costs to bring in the wedding style trailers for the convenience and comfort of our patrons. It’s always fun to hear people coming out of them in amazement about how nice the facilities are!
In 2022, the Festival dates are October 7-9, and the hours are 10am-5pm Friday, Saturday, & Sunday.
Adult admission is $10 per day or $12 for a weekend pass. Kids 14 and under are FREE. You can go out and back in on the same day by getting a hand stamp on your way out of the Festival gate.
The show is at Topnotch field in Stowe, VT. Use GPS address 3420 Mountain Road, Stowe, VT 05672.
