13 Mar Apply Now: Nickel Plate Arts’ 4th Annual Maker Faire – TEMPORARILY POSTPONED
COVID-19 UPDATE: Given artist, vendor, and government feedback, Nickel Plate Arts has decided to reschedule Maker Faire 2020 for August or later. We plan to go forward with a rescheduled date inclusive of health and safety measures barring a major change in the COVID-19 situation but will assess how reopening plans go in Indiana before picking an official date. Visitor safety remains our primary concern along with our artists’ careers! Please check back for updates.
It’s back! The Nickel Plate Arts Maker Faire returns this spring to showcase the works of our talented local artisans and makers. Join us on Saturday, June 20 from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on the downtown Noblesville Courthouse Square alongside the 43rd Annual Strawberry Festival organized by St. Michael’s Episcopal Church. Get crafty with us – watch live demonstrations and shop from a wide variety of handmade or hand-designed goods including pottery, woodenware, handmade books, jewelry, bath and body products, home decor, candles, and more.
If you are a local artisan, maker, or craftsperson with an interest in selling your wares and/or demonstrating your skills at this high-traffic event, please fill out and submit this form by Wednesday, May 27 to be considered. Once approved, vendors will need to pay a $25 non-refundable booth fee to confirm their participation in this event and reserve a booth space. Please note that the booth fee is required in order to secure a space — vendors will not be confirmed until payment has been received.
All vendors should receive notification regarding their approval status by Thursday, May 28 along with further information regarding the event. Please note that all vendors are responsible for their own booth furnishings, including any tents, tables, chairs, displays, and electrical cords. Nickel Plate Arts will assist vendors in connecting to electricity as it is available.
We will review all vendors to ensure that they meet our vision for recognizing the maker community in the Nickel Plate Arts region. Because we have limited space, several criteria will be reviewed in consideration of each vendor. Please email Maggie at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
