Craft Lake City Calls for Entries from Artists and Crafters

SALT LAKE CITY, Monday, March 28, 2011– Artist applications are now being accepted by Craft Lake City, an alternative arts and crafts festival.

The third annual Craft Lake City will be held on Saturday, August 13. 2011 from 2 p.m. to 9 p..m. at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City. The event is free and open to the public.

Craft Lake City 2010 applications will be accepted now through Friday, May 27. All submissions will be evaluated by a team of judges and applicants will be notified of their status by mid-June 2011. Artists selected will be invited to vend at this year’s alternative arts festival. The cost to apply is just $5.00.

“Salt Lake continues to welcome Craft Lake City with open arms and wallets,” said Angela Brown, SLUG Magazine editor and Craft Lake City director. “With Gallivan Center construction complete, we expect the size of the event to double. Last year we worked with 131 artists and about 8,000 shoppers enjoyed the show.”

Craft Lake City is an outdoor arts festival that will showcase hundreds of local artists, specializing in handmade goods. Affordably priced items like silk-screened posters, reconstructed clothing, knitted items and jewelry will be available. Entertainment will be provided throughout the day and will include craft demonstrations, street performers, dancers and musical acts. Craft Lake City is modeled after alternative national craft festivals like the Renegade Craft Fair and the Bazaar Bizarre. The event is sponsored by the Gallivan Center and hosted by SLUG Magazine.
