The Arts Picnic is inviting up to five non-profit arts organizations or businesses that have an ongoing arts program to apply for a booth space at the 42nd annual festival. You may use your booth space to advertise your arts organization and its services, recruit members, sell tickets to your upcoming events as well as items benefiting your organization.
Registration material plus $50 fee is due April 13, 2020.
Greeley organizations will be given first review by the Arts Picnic committee. If spaces remain open, Weld County based organizations will then be considered. Selected organizations will receive notification of participation May 18 – 22. Booth fees will be returned to non-accepted organizations at this time as well.
Each nonprofit group will be provided an empty space measuring 10′ x 10′ and must provide their own display booth, racks, tables and/or other display materials. We encourage each booth to include a tent or overhead protection. Tents should be sturdy and must be weighted or staked. Displays must be suitable for use on a grassy surface. Electricity may be available dependent upon booth location. You will be advised of your booth assignment the week of May 18 – 22 when you receive your festival information packet. Booth locations are determined by the “Park Your Art” Committee. You may not relocate your booth once it has been assigned. All booth locations are final.
Booth set up:
- After 2pm, Friday, July 24.
- Booths should be set up no later than 8:30am on July 25 and 9:30am on July 26.
Someone must be present in your booth for the entire two days of the Festival. No early departures!
The Arts Picnic reserves the right to remove those items from the show determined unsuitable for public display. This will be at the discretion of the Arts Picnic Steering Committee.
No dogs (except service animals) are allowed in Lincoln Park by City ordinance.
Security will be provided in the park both Friday and Saturday nights. Booths may remain overnight but items should be removed from the park or secured in locked booths. The festival is not responsible for loss or damage to participant’s property.
Participants shall agree to abide by Festival parking regulations. Lots are available to park vehicles one block south of Arts Picnic in the City Hall parking lot.
The City of Greeley reserves the right to cancel the Arts Picnic due to Acts of God, weather, or other unforeseen events that will jeopardize the health and safety of the public. There is no rain date.
