Craft Fair Booth Information

Now in its 22nd year, the annual Shepherd of the Valley Presbyterian Church Chile Festival is an exciting event to raise money for our community. To date, with the help of crafters such as you, over $150,000 has been donated. Our two-day event is expected to draw even larger crowds than in the past. As a skilled crafter, this is your invitation to join in the event by renting an 8’ x 9’ craft booth space, under a tent in the church parking lot or inside the church in the common area (space is very limited inside). Your participation in the Chile Festival Craft Fair is an opportunity to display your crafts and receive tremendous, positive exposure at this community-building event.

Registration is on a first-come basis. Jewelry will be limited to 5 returning jewelers and 2 new jewelers. Other crafts will be limited to no more than 3 booths per type.

The benefits of our Chile Festival Craft Fair include:

  • Large tent with high visibility at Shepherd of the Valley Presbyterian Church at 1801 Montano Rd.
  • In addition to standard media publicity, post cards will be provided to each crafter for advertising their participation.
  • Crafter participants will be recognized on the Chili Fest Website.
  • Popular live music, children’s activities and great food to create a festive, fun, and profitable environment.
