How To Get Prepared For The Fair
Check out our Artisan Display and Branding Inspirations on Pinterest!
Contribute to the Jackalope Boutique
At the fair, we often have many makers who create special "jackalope" themed items (aka items with Jackalopes on them!). We love highlighting these awesome creations and would like to feature them all together in our own "jackalope themed" booth at the front of the fair.
One of each jackalope themed item will be on display and labeled with the artist name, price, and booth number. If someone is interested in purchasing your item, we'll send them your way! We won't actually sell your products, this is just a fun way to give you some extra promotion and to spread some jackalope love.
Jackalope Boutique items can be submitted to us at the time of our vendor mixer or morning of the fair, or you can mail to us directly at Jackalope Arts, 6944 Owens St, Arvada CO 80004. Please include the item name, price, and photograph in an email to us, so we can make a label for it by Sunday, May 13th.
We're teaming up with the Westword to do an exciting giveaway leading up to the fair to help with promotions. The giveaway will feature a bundle of items from vendors participating in the fair and will be publicized in print, on the Westword website, and in their social media leading up to the fair.
Want to contribute to the giveaway? Please bring your giveaway item to our Artisan Mixer with your company name, name of donated item, and the retail price. Or - mail to us by April 7th at
6944 Owens St,
Arvada CO 80004
*Please no live items included in your donation. We can't guarantee the Westword staff will properly water a plant, and we don't want our winner to collect a dead prize.
