Arts on Sunday in downtown Winston-Salem is the only festival I know of that is absolutely free to vend.  I've done this festival for two seasons, and with the live music and family atmosphere, it is a lot of fun to do!  Here's information about participating.

I don't know the people at Proehlific Park (and this is their first year), but I do know everyone else, so please mention how you heard about it. Good luck this season!

If you're an artist or crafter, be sure to bookmark this page (or better yet, subscribe me in a reader or "like" me on Facebook).  I'll be adding to this page as I get more information.
