Namaste!

ArtEast would like to invite local vendors to join us as we celebrate the culture of India during our Utsav Festival in downtown Issaquah on September 8. 

Booths along the Artist Alley on Alder Street and throughout the park near the train depot offer unique spaces to showcase and vend unique artwork, goods, and services to the attendees of this special event which reflect the amazingly diverse and rich culture of India. All chosen vendors will be assigned a 10x10ft space to be furnished with participant’s own equipment and display materials. We ask that all vendors make a conscious effort to have an attractively and professionally decorated booth in support of this festive occasion.

This is a rain or shine event. Bring proper materials to protect or cover your items in the event of any weather. Safety is important; your tent/canopy must be securely anchored to prevent it from becoming a dangerous, airborne projectile, in the event that high winds should occur.

All vendors must sign a waiver in order to participate. Booth structure and contents, including inventory, are the sole responsibility of the vendor. No electricity will be provided to booths. All vendors must be able to provide proof of eligibility to vend in the state of Washington.  

The event takes place from 10am-4pm. Vendor set up begins at 8am, and all booths must be cleared out by 4:30 pm. 

Please leave the space around your booth clean and free of garbage, both during and after the culmination of the event. This is a volunteer-run event and all the help you can give us will be greatly appreciated.

Submissions will be accepted through August 26th, and accepted vendors will be informed of details on August 29rd.

As last event in the ongoing series, ArtEast, together with the Downtown Issaquah Association, invites local and regional artists and artisans to participate in this fine arts and crafts street fair. Your submission should include images of your work that indicate the greater collection of goods you intend to sell. We accept all 2D, 3D and handmade crafts provided they are not manufactured and are made by hand by the artisan.

Accepted artists will be provided a 10x10 space in Issaquah's historic downtown area. Only space is provided. Sellers must bring anything required for them to sell goods, including tables, umbrellas, etc... Electricity is provided in most locations but not guaranteed. 

This is an exceptional opportunity to be paired with a winery and a musician for a community event that encourages artists to sell their work.  Aside from the entry submission, no additional fees will be incurred by the artist.  

NOTE: the submission fee for this event is reduced for ArtEast members.  If you are not a member and plan on applying for more than one event, purchasing a membership reduces the fee to $10 for each event and gives artists access to grids, tables and chairs at a no-cost, first-come, first-served basis. For more information, please visit: www.arteast.org

The event begins at 6 pm and ends at 9 pm.  Artists can set up as early as 5 pm and are strongly encouraged to stay through the event which ends at 9 pm; day light permitting.  


Notions of community and belonging are points of contention today, both politically and socially.  Entire populations are seeking to flee their own homes in search of new, safer, and more promising places to raise families and establish lives for themselves, while global populations simultaneously struggle to maintain their own cultural identity.  Now more than ever, it is in our best interest to revisit what it means to be part of a community and how vast a community can truly be.

With our upcoming exhibition, The Space We Share, we seek art that questions where the walls of our homes end, where the open gates of our community begin, and the unique people with whom we share this space.

For The Space We Share, ArtEast seeks 2D work that explores the layers of society, home, and our cohabitation of this place in time.  From immediate families to neighborhoods, cities, countries, nations, hemispheres, and the planet, each of these categories is a community unto itself.  We seek artwork that takes a unique position on the concept of home and provides new insight into what it means to be part of a community, and the ways that we came to be a part of this community that we share.

Work will be on display at Blakely Hall from September 12 through November 27th
