   We at IAA have had the privilege of having outdoor fairs on MDI for 47 years. We are a part of this community and our sponsor the YWCA is a big part of this community. Our supporters are friends, business owners, and other local crafters.  To have our outdoor fairs we must seek approval from these communities.

We will be jurying crafters for all fairs. If you have not been in one of our fairs, please include photos of your work or a link to your work online.

In order to update our communications this year, we will be notifying you once applications have been received via email.  If you do not have an email, please include a cell phone number that we can text to send that verification.  The acceptance and/or waitlist notices will be sent after the application closes.
