Applications are available for the fourth annual Tryon Arts and Crafts Fall Festival, to be held Saturday, Oct. 15 and Sunday, Oct. 16. The event will take place at 373 Harmon Field Rd. in Tryon, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
This year’s festival will include juried arts and crafts vendors, craft demonstrations, live entertainment, food vendors and a children’s craft corner.
The festival will be free and open to the public.
Organizers invite artists of all media and styles to enter.  Single booths for individual artists as well as larger booths for art groups and/or organizations are available.
While the festival continues to bring professional and experienced artists to the event, organizers said they also take the time to help those who may be new to the festival circuit. Emerging artists are encouraged to contact Tryon Arts and Crafts School with any questions or concerns.
The festival is also looking for food and beverage vendors. Individuals selling items from snack food to gourmet meals, or anything in between, should call or email the Tryon Arts and Crafts School office for information and an application.
Lastly, the fall festival is searching for musicians, bands and family friendly entertainment acts. The stage will offer performances throughout the weekend. Artists’ applications are due by Aug.15.
