We are pleased to invite you to apply for a booth space in this year’s Festival - and a special thanks to all who participated last year. We will be accepting a total of approximately 250 artists and craftsmen. Our Festival is a two-day event and all exhibitors must participate both days. There is no teardown Saturday evening and security is provided overnight.

  1. The Montrose Arts & Crafts Festival is a juried Festival. Only work conceived and executed by the applicant is acceptable. Decisions of the jury are final. We reserve the right to refuse entrance to any exhibitor whose work is not approved by the jury. Any artist found selling items not made by them may be asked to leave without a refund of their entry fee. The following items are not permitted at the Festival: imported goods, commercially manufactured goods, resale items, items assembled from kits or any mass-produced goods. NOTE: If your setup requires ice you must provide it yourself. Montrose A&C no longer provides free ice.
  2. All prepared food vendors and prepackaged food vendorsmust secure a Los Angeles County Health Department permit as follows: Email your completed Community Event Temporary Food Facility Application (TFF) directly to or to no later than April 20, 2024. MSPA will collect all applications and permit fees on behalf of the L.A. County Dept. of Public Health. Your PayPal link to submit your fee as either “DPH Prepared Food Booth Permit,” “DPH Prepackaged Food Booth Permit” or “DPH Prepackaged with Sampling Food Booth Permit” can be found on the Arts & Crafts page of our website: NOTE: If you have a Food Truck or Cart, please provide us with a copy of your DPH permit.
