At WTAT-sponsored shows, the artist or a studio principal or employee directly involved in design and production must be present for the complete duration of the fair to sell and meet the public.
If you become a member of WTAT, it is required that booths at a WTAT show be set up on time; opening late or closing early is not allowed. Exhibitors must bring enough stock for the entire show. All participants must be 18 or older to apply.
- In the event of theft, vandalism, damage and/or loss of property, the West Tennessee Artisan Trail will not be held liable. It is strongly recommended that artisans have show insurance, and some large shows require this. Per show insurance is $39. Annual policies vary. WTAT will be glad to provide information on artists’ insurance.
