The Sister Bay Fall Festival Arts & Crafts Show will be held on Mill Road east of Bay Shore Drive (Hwy. 42). Set-up is on asphalt, no stakes allowed, so weights or sandbags must be used. Mill Road will be closed to vehicular traffic for the festival which makes it easy for buyers to walk the grounds and for you to load and unload. We have room for approximately 90 exhibitors. All items offered for sale must be handcrafted and the work of the exhibitor. Vendors must stay for all 3 days of the festival.
