Craft Submission Terms & Conditions

K-FEST invites crafters of all disciplines to submit their work by Friday, April 5th for inclusion in the 2024 K-FEST craft fair Saturday and Sunday of the festival (June 1st – 2nd). There is no fee to apply, but we would be happy to accept donations if your sales go well. K-FEST has a particularly strong interest in Kerry crafters. Accepted crafters will be contacted by end of April.

  • Each accepted submission will be granted an 8ft pitch in a central Killorglin indoor location, the layout to be determined by K-FEST. You will be given the location with an acceptance email.
  • We ask that crafters arrive by 10am to register and stall set-up at the location on Saturday morning 1st June.
  • All accepted crafters must be present for the duration of the craft fair (Saturday and Sunday, June 1st & 2nd)
  • The fair runs from 10am to 5pm each day.
  • Crafters are responsible for sourcing their own tables.
  • Crafters are responsible for transport of their own work to and from the festival.
  • Each crafter is responsible for the set-up of their own stall and work.
  • K-FEST is not responsible for the damage to any works during the festival.
  • All crafters are responsible for the insuring of their own works, if necessary.
  • Due to our insurance policy, all work must be installed each morning and uninstalled each evening.
  • K-FEST does not charge a submission/acceptance fee or commission on any works sold. Crafters keep 100% of sales on their work. If you would like to make a donation you can do so to our volunteer looking after the craft fair.

K-FEST organisers reserve the right to photograph works and to use elements of accepted entries for exhibition for publicity purposes unless the artist expressly states the contrary in writing. Copyright of all work is the property of the artist. Work is accepted for exhibition and sale based on merit.

All accepted crafters should be present in your respective space for the duration of Saturday and Sunday of the festival. Since buyers and collectors who come to our events prefer to meet the artist or at least talk to someone who knows about their work, we have found that artists who engage with our visitors are generally more likely to make sales.

Due to the large volume of submissions, it is logistically impossible to accept all work. Any crafter who is not accepted through the submission’s application process will not be permitted to exhibit and sell at the festival this year.

K-FEST is not a funding body and is a not-for-profit organisation, which raises its income from fundraising and sponsorship, along with public sector grants, run by committed volunteers. We always encourage and strive to work with people, but we are not perfect and are unpaid volunteers doing community service, so we ask you to respect our work and vision, and other crafters in the same space.
