• This year we will award ribbons to the following categories:
  • Overall BEST IN SHOW
  • Professional- First, Second and Third Place
  • Amateur- First, Second and Third Place
  • Student- First, Second and Third Place
  • (Five) Honorable Mention Ribbons across all categories.


The award ceremony will be on Saturday at 3pm on the Music Stage. Artists/Crafters will be called to the stage to receive their ribbon. Artists/Crafters who have won ribbons are asked to display them on their tent/booth/wall, etc. during the remainder of the festival so that visitors can see our winners!

JURORS will make the rounds of the festival from 11am-12pm, and will then meet and tabulate winners. Judging will be based on the overall quality of your work product, technique, and presentation. It will not be based on single works of art, so you do not need to enter specific pieces. If you wish, you may highlight special pieces within your booth by creating special marketing or presentation to call attention to the jury.

Winners will have their photos taken and be published on our website and in the local newspaper, the Niagara Gazette & Buffalo News. In addition, we would be happy to place a press release with our winners’ local newspapers upon their request. Copies of photos for winners can be obtained by request after July 1, 2016.
