Call for Artists: Cider Days

Cider Days on Historic Walnut Street is now accepting applications for artists and crafters for its 23rd annual event, Sept. 19 & 20.

The two-day fall festival features regional artists and crafters, performance stages, fall-themed activities for kids and, of course, delicious apple cider. This year's party will be bigger than ever. For one year only, Artsfest will run concurrently with Cider Days on Walnut Street. The event was postponed by the COVID-19 outbreak, but artists for that event have already applied.

The application can be filled out online. Applications for non-profit booths, performers, Scarecrow Village, vendors, and volunteers will be announced in the coming months.
