Wake Forest Downtown is hosting its second “Forest Fest”, celebrating the Town of Wake Forest, on Saturday, April 15, 2023. The Wake Forest Guild of Artists has again been invited to join this event as fine arts are important to the community. We are excited to return this year and hope this event will be even larger than last year’s inaugural event. 

This is an indoor/outdoor rain or shine event. We will not have enough indoor space to move outdoor vendors inside in case of rain.

Booth Fee for non-member Artists and Artisans: $50

Refund Policy: Vendor cancellations will be refunded their booth fees until April 3rd. There will be no refunds for cancellations after April 3rd
