Call for Artists - Annual Iroquois Indian Festival
March 15, 2019
Please join us at our 38th Annual Iroquois Festival, scheduled for Saturday & Sunday, August 31 & September 1 (Labor Day Weekend). This is an invitational event intended to showcase the high quality Iroquois art being produced today. In addition to visual artists and craftspeople, there will be dancers, storytellers, and food vendors. The Iroquois Indian Museum is a non-profit institution dedicated to educating the public about Iroquois culture, using Iroquois art as a window into culture. By participating in the Festival, you join us in a celebration of Iroquois creativity, and serve as a cultural ambassador to festival goers.
We will be requesting the same documentation for the sale of Native artwork that other museums and marketplace events require. All NEW artists wishing to participate in the Festival must submit PROOF OF IROQUOIS/HAUDENOSAUNEE ENROLLMENT or if non-enrolled, CERTIFICATION BY THE NATION OF HIS/HER IROQUOIS DESCENT with registration. While we admire the dedication of all those who create, our mission is specifically to promote Iroquois artisans and art.
Each artist will be provided a booth, consisting of two 6’ tables and 2 chairs set up under a large tent. If you require more tables, you must reserve them in advance and pay a fee of $10 per table. This year we are asking for cash or check payment in advance for your booth fee. The booth fee is: $100, which is payable in cash or check. You must reserve your booth by clicking the link:
and filling out the “Registration Form 2019” and sending it back along with your payment to the Museum. There are about 30 available booths, and they will be reserved on a first-come / first-serve basis. If you prefer to bring your own tent and tables you are welcome to set up next to the Museum tents.
The Festival is open 10 AM to 5 PM each day, rain or shine. If you agree to come to the festival we need, and expect, that you will be here for the entire Festival. Please bring enough inventory. The event is costly for the Museum to put on and many of our visitors travel a long distance to meet you.
The Festival is designed to show high quality work by Iroquois artists and craftspeople. Only Iroquois hand-made work should be displayed and sold. Preferably it should be your own work and your best. Handmade work from Iroquois members of your community is also acceptable. Imitations, commercial imports, and items made by non-native individuals are not permitted. Special requests, such as electricity, can sometimes be arranged in advance. We ask that you use our tables and park your vehicles in the areas we provide so that everyone can get around safely.
Lastly, if you find yourself traveling through the area this summer, please consider joining us any weekend to promote your art. While we will not have tents and tables available, you are welcome to set up your own and sell your work. Attendance is usually best when we have scheduled events. Check the calendar on our website for dates. There is no booth fee for setting up on these days.
We look forward to seeing you once again.
