Artist Vendor Grant
The parade is BACK!!
Apply today to be considered for an Artist Vendor Grant funding opportunity at the Rose, White and Blue Parade & Festival on Monday, July 4, 2022!
35 local artists/vendors will be selected by a panel of artists to host a booth at the festival at no cost and receive $100 in guaranteed sales. Art must be original and created locally.
To apply: Fill out the application with your contact information and brief description of artwork. Submit a link to an online portfolio and/or store. Pay the $25 booth fee (selected artists will receive a reimbursement).
What if I can’t pay the $25?
Write to us and let us know. No one turned away for lack of funds.
What type of artwork will be considered?
We welcome all mediums of art from jewelry, soap, pet fashion, upcycling, and more! If you have any questions, please contact us.
What happens if I’m not selected?
You will still receive a booth space at the festival and your $25 booth fee will go towards covering the costs of the event. More information about load-in and location to be shared closer to the date of the event.
Who is part of the selection process?
A team of three artists from the community will be part of the selection panel.
Wait, so if I don't make $100 in sales during the festival, the RWB Parade & Festival will just give me $100?
Yes! Our goal is to provide guaranteed income regardless of sales at the end of the event.
I was selected, now what?
We’ll share more information about this individually after the selections are made, but, get ready to celebrate at the festival!
