Application Assistance Days

Get all of your DIY Fest application questions answered! Application Assistance Days are free events open to anyone who has questions about their artisan, STEM, performer, Kid Row or foodie application for the 14th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Presented By Harmons. During these virtual events, Craft Lake City team members are available in real time to help answer all applicant questions, walk through the website and application process, and offer a short tutorial about how to take the best product photos at home. Attendees have the opportunity to get their questions answered and gain insight into this year’s application process.


In-Person Application Assistance will be hosted on: 

Tues., March 29, 2022  6 p.m.- 8 p.m. (at Essential Photo Supply: 959 E 900 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84105)

**Register to Attend HERE**

In-person Application Assistance Day is open to anyone who would like personal assistance when applying for the DIY Festival. Craft Lake City staff are on hand to help answer questions and make the process painless.

Additionally, since providing quality photos is such an important part of the application process, we provide free professional photography services to help you show your work at its best. Our photographers will help stage and photograph your items, and will provide you with a handful of professional quality photos that are yours to keep and use at no cost.

If you do not have access to a computer and need support completing your online application, please email or call our office at 801-906-8521.
