The Berea-Midpark Craft Show (Formerly the Midpark Craft Show) is one of the largest and longest running craft shows in the area. It is the largest annual fund raising event for the Berea-Midpark Performing Arts Boosters. Your participation in our program directly supports our students and their programs. Our show is held at the Middleburg Heights Jr High. 7000 Paula Dr. Middleburg Heights OH. 44130. We use the Cafeteria, Gym and hallways for vendors.
Whether you are new to our show, or have recently participated, Please read this information carefully when considering our show:
Our Table / Space fees:
Because of rental fee increases- In order to maintain a similar cost to previous shows, our $50.00 fee is now for SPACE ONLY. If you would like to rent a table for your space(s), the rental fee will be $5.00 per table. You may contract as many spaces as you would like, with or without as many tables as you would like. These options are all detailed on the contract.
Please note, under no circumstances are we able to approve any one day spaces.
Items being sold:
Because we are a large show (285 spaces), we do end up with multiple tables selling popular items, such as jewelry, soaps, fragrances and decorative items. We make every effort to evenly space these tables throughout the show, and will limit tables of some items. While we do encourage handmade items, we also permit unique commercially made items, collectibles and similar items. Direct Marketing types of vendors, including but not limited to Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, Avon, etc., will be initially offered to a previous year's representative, then offered first come first served to new representatives. Only one vendor per brand will be permitted. Also, please note-we are NOT a juried show.
Cell phone / Internet Service: Please note that cell phone service is limited in the building. Also we unfortunately at this time do NOT have access to the school district Wi-Fi.
We will use your email address to confirm that your acceptance into the show. Table numbers and locations will be provided approximately one month before the show. This will allow us to better confirm vendors, and allow better arrangement of tables.
Rules and General Show Information:
Note: Please remember, we are a Parent Volunteer group; our officers, parents and students all volunteer their time and energy to this event. We all work hard to make the craft show the best show possible, and request your patience with any discrepancies or concerns that may arise in the planning of the show. Thank you!
1.The Craft Show Committee reserves the right to use their discretion on what type of items can be sold. Craft items sold should have some handmade -or- unique portion to them. Commercially produced items are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Food items are generally discouraged, as we operate a full menu in the Craft Show Café. If approved, food items must be wrapped / packaged for consumption away from the craft show. (I.e. candy, cookies, etc.). Used or second-hand items or flea market items are not to be sold for any reason. Please limit items to only those listed on your contract. We assign our vendor locations based on this information. You will be asked to remove any unapproved items from your table.
2. New Vendors- You will be prompted to attach two photos to your contract of your display.
3.All tables are to be covered with a clean tablecloth and must be skirted to the floor on three sides. The tablecloth and skirt are to be provided by the CRAFTER. Tables are 8 foot wooden rental tables. We evenly space our vendor locations throughout the building (Each space-8 ft. wide X approx. 5 ft. deep with 2 ft. between each crafter). Hallway/Cafeteria/Gym spaces are all set in a similar fashion, with similar spacing. Spaces are the same size with or without table rental. The space will be clearly marked. PLEASE do not to infringe upon your neighbors and remain in your allotted space.
