Every Festival, we work to connect patrons with participating artists. If you are an artist interested in being hosted by a Dexter-area resident, please visit the link below and complete the Artist Seeking Accommodation Form.

  1. Use the form below to sign up for our Artists Needing Accommodations List. In the past, we have been able to make accommodations for all artists, but that is not always guaranteed.
