Third St, Oxford PA, 19363) from November 19th-December 20th.

Deadline

October 9th

Jury Process

All items will be critiqued by a panel of craftspeople and artists. This jury will serve as the final authority on eligibility. Careful consideration will be made based on quality, profitability, uniqueness, and category balance.
