Calling all artisans ages 7-17! If you would like to apply to sell your artwork and wares at the 2013 Festival, please click here for a printable application. The registration deadline is June 15, 2013. Limited space requires us to limit the number of participants. A committee will select artists from the applicant pool to display and sell their wares on Saturday of the Festival. Consideration will be given to include a range of ages and artwork. If this years’ Young Artist tent is successful, we will consider extended hours for the 2013 Festival. Artists and parents/guardians must be ticket holders for the 2013 Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival in order to participate and be on Festival grounds.

Other Festival updates
Tickets and camping: Advance sales for tickets and camping will begin at 12 noon, Tuesday, May 28. Advance sales will end at 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 16. All tickets after that time will be at the Gate and at the Gate prices. We expect to have an online order form on this website when advance sales start.
Ticket prices: After keeping Ticket prices constant for the past 3 Festivals, it has come the time to re-evaluate our economics and we have determined that we need to raise our prices slightly. Advanced tickets will be raised $5.00 from last year and gate tickets will be raised $10.00. Camping tag and parking pass prices will remain the same.
Performance Schedules: Our Mainstage, Teen Scene and Children’s Area schedules will be announced next spring. Please select Festival Schedule from the main menu to see what we offered in 2012.
