Craft booths are located throughout the main floor of the High School. Booth sizes vary due to the space available, the size, and the configuration of the rooms and hallways they are located in.
Returning crafters are guaranteed the same booth space they occupied the previous year if their application is postmarked by April 15, 2023.
New crafter applications received with a postmark of April 15, or earlier are placed on a waitlist. All applications postmarked on or after April 16, 2023, will be treated as new crafter applications. They will be added to the waitlist and processed in the order they are received. Waitlisted crafters will be assigned booths on a first come, first served basis, based on the type of product and type of space needed/available.
$75 per booth, if postmarked by April 15, 2023
$80 per booth, if postmarked after April 15, 2023
A limited number of booths have electricity, but we do not supply extension cords. Electricity is available to most (but not all) booths in the hallways, you will need to provide your own long extension cord.

Once you have unloaded, please park in the Jr High parking lot, adjacent to BHS. Absolutely NO trailer parking is allowed in the BHS parking lots. Parking is at a premium for your customers. They cannot shop with you if they can’t find a parking spot.
