In 2023 we have scheduled three 3-day Juried Art & Craft Festivals, one 3-day non-juried Balloon Festival, and several one-day Wine Festivals in New York (under the separate company name Empire State Wine Events).FACTS & PROCEDURES
For the three juried Festivals, you must be the maker or designer of your products, not a rep for other peoples’ lines, in order to participate. Read our Facts & Procedures before you apply. For example, you must send photos of what you will sell, plus, as of this year, one of you in your studio making or designing your work. Initial acceptances will take place in mid-January 2023. After that, we will accept until the shows are full and will keep waiting lists.
For the Balloon and Wine Festivals, we welcome both handmade by the exhibitor as well as retail reps (also known as buy/sell). Note that for the Wine Festivals, we accept primarily Wine, Spirits, and Specialty Food exhibitors with only a few extra spaces for other types of items. We greatly appreciate everyone who chooses to do a show with us.
Then scroll down where you can visit the individual show’s public website. You can click APPLY NOW to see pricing and other details before proceeding with the various applications. Notice that there is one application form for all three juried shows, and you indicate which shows you would like in that one form.

New York Summer Fest
We have had to cancel this show because of inability to get insurance for the event. We are super bummed and apologize for any inconvenience.
After a 9 year run at the Saratoga Country Fairgrounds, where it was titled the Saratoga Balloon & BBQ Festival, this event is moving to the Columbia County Fairgrounds. We are also back to the traditional early summer date. The fairgrounds is closer to the Albany market and has more parking and better balloon flying conditions.
THIS IS A NON-JURIED SHOW, which means that, in addition to those who handmake the items they will be selling, we also welcome re-sellers and buy/sell exhibitors.
One Day Wine Festivals (Non-Juried)
Empire State Wine Events
Sister company Empire State Wine Events produces several one-day Wine Festivals in New York, The shows are updated at the Empire State Wine Festivals website and include two or three shows in Spring and Fall each year. At this time, applications are underway for the two spring events in Albany and Syracuse. These venues are small and we primarily seek Wine, Spirits, Beer, and Specialty food exhibitors but will have limited space for a few others. Booth fees for these shows are FREE for Wine/Spirits exhibitors and only $95 for all others.Go to EMPIRE STATE WINE EVENTS SITE for MORE DETAILS and to APPLY
