This event is held annually on Library grounds on the Saturday of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts.
The application is typically sent out in February/March, with acceptance notifications sent out in April/May.
20 authors/illustrators/vendors/publishers will be accepted this year. Genre representation will be curated to offer a broad visitor experience.
Please plan to supply your own table (6' or 8'), chair(s), and pop-up tent (no larger than 10'x10').
Staff/volunteers will be available to watch tents for 10-15 min. breaks, though will not be permitted to perform sales.
Having another adult with you is recommended to help out as it becomes a long day.
Snacks, drinks, and lunch will not be provided. We recommend the festival and local food vendors when you're looking for a snack or lunch. Water bottle filling stations are available on the 1st and 2nd floors of the library.
A dedicated professional website is required. Social media pages will not be counted as such.
Priority will be given to applicants in the Centre County area and the surrounding counties.
