Deale Elks Lodge presents Smokin' On the Bay 2012 Call for Artists and Crafters
Smokin' On the Bay 2012, a Kansas City BBQ Society Cook-Off with $15,000 in cash prizes will be held Sept 1st & 2nd at Herrington Harbor North in Tracys Landing, MD a lovely Chesapeake Bay setting . The Deale Elks Lodge is coordinating this non-profit fundraising event once again. Last year's inaugural event saw over 3,000 in attendance. This year we are expecting many more guests as the event has grown with our exceptional press resulting in more competitive cook teams, more live bands, and more family activities to be offered.
By popular demand we are offering two craft tents which will hold 34 - 10x10 spaces. This is a non-juried event. These spaces are for 2-days, covered with table, and are only $150. Again this year we are also offering larger 10x20 uncovered spaces with electricity and water available on Vendor Row starting at $300 for the weekend.
The event is from 10AM -10PM. The hours for the craft fair tents are 10AM - 8PM both days at no extra charge. Early breakdown can be accommodated at 4PM for the craft tent only.
The deadline for registration is August 20th but spaces are filling up nicely and we anticipate a sell-out early on for the craft fair.
No spaces can be sublet but we will considered shared spaces in the craft tent should 2 vendors desire to split the days. This must be approved by the Craft Tent Coordinator and is not applicable to Vendor Row
