Fair manager John Kegebein explains the new program. "We are aware that six days is a long time for a single artist to spend at one location, so to accommodate as many as possible for the 2009 Fair we have set aside a separate area with a special daily rate. We have also adopted special conditions to rent a space. If an exhibitor cannot be at the Fair for the full six days, they may partner with another arts and crafts exhibitor, share the booth, and share expenses."
The deadline to apply is July 1, 2009 and for more information and an application interested parties are encouraged to call the Fair office at 831-724-5671 or go on line to the Fair's website www.santacruzcountyfair.com
