All arts and craft work must be the product of the individual submitting an application. Commercially manufactured and buy-sell products cannot be accepted as arts or crafts. There are approximately 135 booths available. All applications must pass our jury, and all applications materials must be complete for the jury. It is recommended that vendors meet the Early Bird deadline of March 15 for best chance of joining our festival.
We do welcome commercial vendors, whom we call Sponsor Vendors. There are several categories of sponsorship, with corresponding advantages for each. Commercial merchandise must not be competitive with our artists or crafters. Sponsors help BISCO to achieve its mission. The more sponsor dollars we have, the more money there is left after the festival for youth projects.
Not-for-Profit organizations find a great market at our festival and we regularly accept several for our show.
For applications, please direct your attention to the bottom of each page of the site where you will find a list of them. Just clicking on the one you want brings up a pdf file. Applications and money should be snail-mailed together because we do not yet have the ability to accept electronic payments.
Volunteering at the Arts Festival is so satisfying, everyone should try it. There are many tasks involved with setting up on Friday evening. Then during the festival there are volunteers who help our vendors with breaks, patrol the site to keep things clean and orderly, sell Duck Derby tickets, help at the music stages, assist with the vendor competition, and then take everything down on Sunday. That is to say nothing of all the volunteer hours that go into producing the show, beginning in September and continuing through the next August.
Membership in BISCO is open to anyone living in the Brockport area whether you are affiliated with an organization, educational or religious institution or have interest in or skills that can benefit BISCO in obtaining its goals. You can become a board member, or just a regular volunteer.
BISCO meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of every month except December.
