Kessler Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair call for artists

Call for Artists – The 2012 Kessler Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair in Oak Cliff

The tenth annual Kessler Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair benefiting The Kessler School and Kessler Park United Methodist Church will be held in Oak Cliff on Saturday, October 6th from 10 am til 4 pm on the school and church lawn at 1215 Turner Ave. in Dallas. 

It is a fun-filled day offering many fun activities, including carnival games, face painting, pony rides, bounce houses, a fall portrait station, an array of musical entertainment, a huge pumpkin patch, beautiful fall mums, delicious food from local vendors, as well as various artists and business vendors from the Oak Cliff area. This annual event draws a substantial number of people from the community and beyond. However, we are very eager and hopeful to increase our artist presence. Therefore, we are reaching out to ask more artists to join us by securing a booth, bringing your creative endeavors and increasing our artist participation. We guarantee it will be a fun day, and you should definitely see some traffic. We have had years when we have seen more that a thousand people attend this event. We are working hard to better promote the street fair portion of the event and are hopeful to draw more people who might not necessarily want to play, but who love art and love to shop. 

We have the support of local artists Larry Pile, The Kessler Craftsman and Lugina Stanley of Blue Dream Glassworks, as well as Julie McCullough and everyone at Make & Made and Indie Genius. We hope to add many more names to that list.

The booth fee is $100.00 if you commit by September 28th, and increases to $125.00 after that date.

 If you are interested, please contact Christy Black, event co-chair at 214-288-1921.
