Booth Camp

TOAF Information Session

What is 'Booth Camp'?

Booth Camp is a series of FREE info sessions, where seasoned artists and TOAF staff come together with past artists to share knowledge, tips, and tricks. We will cover everything you need to know to get yourself prepared for the Fair and make the experience as successful as possible. An outdoor (or online) art fair can seem very demanding and intimidating for first-time participants and we are here to ease the worries and share with you how to address the challenges and prepare for them. We want you to have the most successful experience.

Who should come?

It is mandatory to attend Booth Camp and/or watch the videos that will be emailed to all participating artists. It is important to do your homework to make the most of this new online format.
