After careful consideration, the CSA Women's Association Board has decided to cancel this year's fair due to concerns about COVID -19. We take great pride in our fair and are disappointed that we will not be able to have it this year. However, the health and safety of our vendors, the public, and our volunteers are our highest priority. The event next year is scheduled for July 28, 2021.
 
 
The Women’s Association of the Congregational Summer Assembly (CSA) of Frankfort, Michigan invites you to exhibit in their annual Arts and Crafts Fair on fourth Wednesday of July. Click here for the 2021 CSA Arts & Crafts Fair ApplicationThe 2015 Arts and Crafts Fair was featured in an article in Traverse magazine. 
 

Rain or shine, the Arts and Crafts Fair will be held on the CSA grounds, two miles north of Frankfort, where M-22 and Crystal Lake meet (2128 Pilgrim Highway). The CSA Fair offers a wide variety of arts and crafts by both amateur and professional artisans. In addition, there are CSA-sponsored booths open for most of the day [Baked Goods, Kids' Corner, Cottage Treasures (used items), and a Food Booth featuring coffee and doughnuts in the morning].

The registration fee (see schedule below) must be sent in with your application. Your cancelled check is your acceptance notification. If immediate notification of acceptance is desired, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. The State of Michigan requires a valid Michigan Sales Tax License for fair exhibitors. All exhibits are shown at the exhibitor’s risk, freeing CSA from any liability.

In keeping with the philosophy of the CSA to promote the physical, intellectual and spiritual welfare of the community, no guns or gun-like toys will be sold at the CSA Arts and Crafts Fair. Out of respect for our artisans, we ask that no mass-produced (i.e., buy/sell) items be displayed or sold.
