Artist Info

What you need to know and how we take care of our Artists.

General Info

Artist Spaces

We will have plenty of spaces for artists and creators to set up their white tented booths inside the Statesboro Visitor's Center Market and right outside each side including the back of the building leading towards the wooden bridges. We will also have specific spots marked off in the outdoor paved area in front of the main doors to the market space. 

Freedom to Explore the Festival

We want both the public and our artists to enjoy the festival and explore what others have to offer. If you require a break from your booth at any time during the event, we'll have eager volunteer Booth Sitters who can watch your space/work so you can rest your customer service voice, explore fellow artist's booths, enjoy the music, and more. You can sign up for booth sitters at the event information desk or with an event/volunteer coordinator. *Please note: Booth sitters cannot watch your booth for the entirety of the event. Artists are required to run their booth for at least # hours of the event.

Hospitality Event

Before the festival begins, we will be holding a Meet and Greet event exclusive to event staff, volunteers, vendors, and artists. At this event, you can network with artists and vendors who've come from near and far to participate as well as get familiar with some of our booth sitters, event staff, and the location. 

At the conclusion of the festival, we will also be holding an appreciation reception  for artists in the Averitt Center for the Arts. Come mingle and share your experiences from the festival while we crank up the music and get our snack on. Special gifts will be given out at this reception event so don't pack up without saying good bye and leaving your card.

Meet & Greet: March 20th at 5:30pm
Location: Visitor's Center Marketplace
Reception:
March 23th at 7:30pm

Parking

​After set-up, artists should move their vehicles into the spaces reserved for artist parking. SFA will provide a parking pass for one vehicle that artists should place inside their car on the driver’s side of the dashboard. Vehicles parked in handicap spaces during festival hours and that do not have official handicap tags will be towed at the owner's expense. Shuttles to parking will be provided for artists.

Security

SFA provides 24-hour security beginning at 5 pm on Friday, March 21st, 2025, and continuing through the close of the festival at 5 pm on Sunday, March 23rd, 2025. However, SFA and festival organizers urge artists to be diligent and alert and secure their booths as they would at any other event or festival. Exhibiting at the SFA is at the discretion of the artist and every artist participates at his or her own risk. The SFA, Averitt Center for the Arts and The Market at Visit Statesboro does not insure the personal property of any exhibitor/artist. All exhibitors/artists participate as independent contractors. 

Sales & Taxes

Exhibitors are responsible for overseeing the promotion and sale of their work during festival hours. All proceeds earned from sales belong to the artists. By law, artists must collect sales tax on work sold during SFA. The sales tax in Georgia is 8%. The State of Georgia Department of Revenue will provide tax forms for artists.
