Call for Artists: Canal Fulton, OH


Canal Fulton Historical and Art Festival
Friday and Saturday,

August 15 & 16
11 am to 8 pm
St. Helena Heritage Park
40 Artists
Deadline: July 1

Where is Canal Fulton, OH? Conveniently located near Akron, Canton, Cleveland and Columbus, check it out here. This is year two of the event. The organizer, Dennis Downing, is a trustee of the heritage society, sponsor of the festival.

Visitors to the event can enjoy a weekend festival of art and history, celebrating Canal Fulton’s historical “canal era” and historical timeline of transportation from covered wagons, canal boats, and trains.

Canal Fulton is one of the last remaining working canal cities in Ohio with an enriched historical district of over eighty nationally registered buildings and one of four remaining horse-drawn canal boats. This unique festival brings Art & History together: artists, wine tasting, a civil war camp and reenactments, historical displays and lectures, museum tours, live entertainment and more.

Who should apply to this event?

  • artists with traditional work
  • artists whose work connects with the historical theme
  • artists with work that appeals to families
  • artists who enjoy the ambiance of a themed event

Please note that the event is held on a Friday and Saturday. The Ohio “Blue Laws” prohibit the sale of alcohol on Sundays and part of the fun of the festival is the presence of three local wineries.

In the fall, nearby is the ever popular Yankee Peddler show with a similar historical theme, so there definitely is an eager audience.

Do you live in the region? Have an open weekend? Then you may want to spend it in this lovely community. Expect low booth fees and a good return on your dollar.
