If you've always wanted to be part of the Capitol Hill People's Fair, this is your chance. Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods is now taking applications for the 41st incarnation of this popular annual event, which always features booths with handmade arts and crafts as well as food, non-stop entertainment and the town's best people-watching.
Categories for arts and crafts include ceramics, painting, jewelry, children's items, wearable art, and more; applications will be sent to a jury. (Fair warning: Even if your is selected, there's a booth fee of $300, with additional fees for electricity, corner locations and double-booths.)
"We are grateful to all the artists and craftspeople who continue to come out and support the Capitol Hill People's Fair," says Roger Armstrong, CHUN's executive director. "They provide an incredible range of arts, crafts and interesting and affordable items for our fairgoers to shop for. Each year I am amazed at the artistic and creative skills that our exhibitors showcase."
Want to be one of them? Applications are available at www.chundenver.org or though the CHUN office (1290 Williams Street), and will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Friday, March 9, 2012.
The 41st Annual Capitol Hill People's Fair itself runs June 2 and June 3, 2012.
