Call for entries! The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is accepting craft applications for the 2020 event, happening April 23-May 3.
The Festival will once again showcase three unique craft areas:
Congo Square African Marketplace: features unique, handcrafted artwork that reflects cultural influences seen throughout the African Diaspora. Presentations by artists and vendors resonate with the rich African-Caribbean cultural legacy in Congo Square.
Contemporary Crafts: presents work by both Louisiana and the nation’s most talented contemporary artists. It features original, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind designs and accepts applicants from all crafts media and disciplines.
Louisiana Marketplace: introduces Festivalgoers to a variety of handcrafted works by only Louisiana artisans and craftspeople. The Marketplace showcases works that express various aspects of the state’s unique cultural heritage.
Applications are available at nojazzfest.com/crafts. The application fee is $30. Artists may submit an application to more than one craft area, but may exhibit in ONLY ONE craft area of the Festival. ONLY Congo Square allows vending of handcrafted imports.
