The Collin County Farm Museum proudly presents the first annual Collin County Rural Heritage Fair. On Saturday, May 13, 2017, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., people from around the county will join us for a free, family-friendly celebration of our rural heritage. The fair will boast craft stations for kids, demonstration areas for adult educational programs, farm heritage activities and shopping for handcrafted arts and crafts.
We are currently seeking merchants and themed participants that can provide rural skills and craft demonstrations and/or products such as artisan foods, handmade folk arts and crafts (basketry, farming, food, fiber, leather, soaps, sewing, wood working, building or restoration). We will not be accepting multilevel marketing merchants at this time.
For space consideration and an application please email Jennifer Rogers with your contact information and specialty. Approval is first-come-first-served, and we are screening to prevent duplication of specialties.
Approved applicants will receive an "Appearance Agreement" and a "Release and Waiver." Additional applicable liability insurance certificates and application fee ($25 merchants, no charge for non-profits and exhibitors) may be required. Since this is our first year, those participants who appear this year will receive first right of refusal for the following year's participation. In case of inclement weather, event may be moved to an alternate facility or rescheduled.
Be a part of the heritage that will be the Collin County Rural Heritage Fair for years to come!
