Watermark’s 49th annual Art in the Park will take place July 16-17, 2016 in Bemidji’s Library Park. The juried fine arts and crafts fair is open to all artists or crafts people interested in selling and displaying their original artwork.

Artist Registration

Early bird registration deadline is January 15, 2016. By submitting before this date, applicants save on fees and may avoid wait lists for each category. Early bird booth prices are $100 for Watermark members and $140 for non-members.

To apply for a booth, print out this form and mail to Watermark Art Center, 505 Bemidji Ave N, Bemidji, MN, 56601. Please follow the instructions detailed on the form to include everything needed in submission, including images of your work, return envelope/postage, and separate checks for certain fees.

All submitted work is juried by Watermark’s Festival Screening Committee. When making its decision, the committee looks for an emphasis of originality, craftsmanship, a consistency in the work, and a command of the medium. Applicants will be informed of acceptance by early April.

Food Vendor Registration

Early bird registration deadline for food vendors is March 13. Early bird pricing is $225. Watermark has a non-compete clause on all food items except bottled water and pop. New vendors are always welcome, but priority will be given to those who have had a space at Art in the Park previous years. New applicants must send an image of their setup with their submission. Vendors will be informed of acceptance by May 2.

To register your food booth, mail this form to Watermark Art Center, 505 Bemidji Ave N., Bemidji, MN 56601. Please follow instructions on the form to include all needed materials, including booth fee, proof of insurance, and a return envelope/postage.

See you this summer!
