APPLY NOW for May 3's Go West Craft Fest, and a Special Partnership with GRID

The wait is over... Vendors may apply now to participate in this Spring's Go West Craft Fest, Saturday, May 3 (rain date May 4) returning for the 5th time to the wonderful Woodlands, 40th & Woodland in West Philly. The event features local crafts of all descriptions, like jewelry, accessories, ceramics, prints, clothing, stationery, soaps and more. There's also live music (confirmed so far are the Spinning Leaves and children's musician Jay Sand), food by local eateries (including Baltimore Avenue's Taco Angeleno), and aerial/acrobatic performances by Tangle's Tinycircus. The festival is open to the public and free to attend.

The last day to apply is February 19, which seems so early for a May show, but here's why...

... we are happy to announce a special partnership with GRID magazine, which focuses on sustainability issues and initiatives in and around Philadelphia. GRID is including a special 16-page Go West insert in their May issue (released on April 17) all about the festival, its participants, and the Woodlands. We need to get our planning done far ahead of time for their publication deadlines, which is why we are doing this so early in the year.

With a circulation of 25,000 throughout the region as well as the online edition, this is an amazing opportunity to get the word out about this event and bring new traffic to our neighborhood. It is also a great advertising opportunity for local businesses and organizations. We hope you will support this worthy publication. Please click here for more information about advertising.

This event wouldn't be what is is without the huge swell of community support we have come to know. If you've ever been a vendor or performer at one of our Fests, or if you've come out to shop or just take in the scene, Thank you! We hope to see you again in May.
