Attention Area Artists…
We at the Schaghticoke Fair are very excited to announce the 2014 fair wide theme as "Harvest Your Dreams." The fair is holding a contest open to all artists, high school age and older throughout the area to design a piece of artwork representing this year's chosen theme to be reproduced for t-shirts, brochures and posters to promote the 2014 fair. We will be introducing "Harvest Your Dreams" into our buildings, exhibits, fair entries, the grandstand, our entertainment in the park and in our marketing, advertising and promotions of the 2014 Schaghticoke Fair.
See the attached information sheet describing the elements to be included in the design, as well as the information that would need to be included with each artist's design entry. In addition, the benefits and rewards for entering into the theme design contest.
Please feel free to contact Mary at 753-4411, x13 or email email@example.com for the fair logo and to ask any questions about the design competition. Thank you and we look forward to receiving your artwork representing the "Harvest Your Dreams" fair wide theme.
The Schaghticoke Fair will celebrate its 195th year of being a showcase for the best that Rensselaer County residents and agriculture have to offer. Building after building will be bursting with vegetables, fruits, animals, antiques, baked goods and homemade crafts.
The 3rd oldest Fair in New York State takes great pride in being a Family Fair with hands on participation at its exhibits. Tasting, seeing, hearing and literally feeling agriculture in action is one of the best experiences we can offer.
