How do we make our decision on who will get in?

Because our space is limited, there will only be a specific number of booths to fill.  A number of factors go into deciding who will participate including:

1.  Number of Applicants:  Hover Craft receives many more applications than we have space for.

2.  Innovation and original booth ideas:  Performances or items created should not be based on any pre-existing patterns or products.  Variety and innovation of vendors is important to us.  We do not have the space to support many vendors who make similar items, so think creatively before you apply!

3.  To adhere to our mission, Hover Craft favors individuals who do not have established businesses, own their own brick and mortar venues, or who have already been accepted this season to other established fairs in the city.  Does this mean established vendors will not be accepted?  No!  But this does factor into our decision.

4.  All participants must be living in the city of Milwaukee.

We review everyone's complete application and then we make our choices!


  1. why do you have to live in the city of milwaukee?
