Cotton Ginning Days is a unique festival that attempts to recreate life as it was in the late 1800s. The festival features antique farm and textile equipment displays brought in by exhibitors from all over the southeast. Festival activities include bluegrass and traditional music by nationally known and regional artists, a Kid's County Fair with pony and train rides, great food, and much more. Patrons come from more than a 100-mile radius and the attendance averages 50,000 over the three-day weekend.
We offer great facilities for arts and craft vendors. The Arts and Craft Sale is set up in vacant, clean horse stalls with overhead cover, lights, electricity, and running water. We have police security in the park day and night and most vendors choose to leave their wares overnight in their booths. We assign spaces first come, first served. When all craft vendors are in place, the Arts and Craft Area resembles storefronts, each booth with an outside and inside the area. The Craft Vendor fee is $40 for all Barns for all three days of the festival, please note that crafters are not required to attend all three days.
Please read through the entire packet before signing and turning in the application.
