Notice to local Artists and Vendors! Englewood Forest Festival in #SalemOR – August

Englewood Forest Festival

Englewood Forest Festival unfolds in the next season but local artists and small business vendors can apply now to be part of the second annual event that takes place Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

The festival takes place in the 7-acre Englewood Park, the city’s oldest park at 1260 19th St. NE in Salem, and the remnant of a forest that once blanketed the area.

The festival is meant to celebrate the talents in the Northeast neighborhood, build community and educate people about the local environment.

The festival is open to all artists and craftspeople producing original, handcrafted work as well as small businesses in Northeast Salem.


Up to 60 artists will be chosen to exhibit at the 2018 event. The criteria for acceptance include artistic merit (craftsmanship, design, vision, creativity, presentation and originality).

The first priority is artists from Northeast Salem.

Artists from outside the Northeast Salem will be considered for acceptance beginning June 1 but may submit their applications earlier.

Two artists may share a booth; however, both individuals must submit separate applications and fees. Artists and vendors must staff their booth for the duration of the festival.

The application for artists is online at http://englewoodforestfestival.com/ and can also be picked up locally at 2010 Nebraska St NE in Salem.

Artists under the age of 18 do not pay a fee. Artists pay a $50 fee and keep all proceeds. 

Festival organizers are excited to give a prize this year for an original poster. To learn more and submit an entry go to http://englewoodforestfestival.com/poster-contest.

The Englewood Forest Festival is sponsored by Northeast Neighbors (NEN), N2 Community Partnership Team and the City of Salem.
