40th GRADD Arts and Crafts Fest. Applications Now Available
The Green River Area Development District (GRADD) is currently accepting applications from artisans, craftsmen, and food vendors who wish to participate in the 40th Annual GRADD Arts & Crafts Festival. This unique autumn Tri-State tradition will be held at Henderson’s scenic Audubon State Park the weekend of October 6-7, 2012.
The fee for art/craft booths (15 feet by 15 feet) is $100, and concession spaces (also 15 feet by 15 feet) are $150 each. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis until all spaces are filled. There is no commission taken on sales. For art/craft vendors, only hand-crafted items may be displayed and sold (no mass-produced items).
In addition to art/craft and food booths, this year’s event will also feature: artisan demonstrations, children’s activities, hayrides, live music (by Heath Eric & Molly G and Brad Snapp & Jarred Green), furry friends from the Humane Society of Henderson County, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s “Drive Smart” rollover simulator, and a cross country 5K challenge (benefiting the Brain Injury Adventure Camp in Robards).
The festival will run Saturday, October 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, October 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
