Craft Show Introduced for 2015 Tulip Festival


The Tulip Festival Steering Committee is pleased to announce that a craft show will be added to this year’s list of events during the festival. The craft show will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 16, in the basement of Iowa State Bank.


“We’re excited to add a craft show to the festival, as it will add a unique aspect to our many events and attractions for visitors and community members to enjoy,” says Bea Schaap, co-chairperson of the Steering Committee.


Individuals who create handmade, original crafts are invited to apply for the craft show, and are encouraged to include Dutch items as a portion of their items to sell. Only handmade, original items will be accepted into the show, and no food or beverage items will be accepted.


Applications for the craft show are available on the festival’s website, and are open until March 15 or until the booths are full. Applications from individuals meeting the craft show requirements will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Individuals accepted will be notified by April 1, and an entry fee of $35 will be due by April 30 following acceptance. Questions can be directed to the Tulip Festival office at 712-707-4510.
