The 2023 applications will be available in mid-November 2022.   Applicants will be accepted until categories are filled.  Affectionately known as “The Penn’s”, the Festival never overbooks a category, however, we do consider every handmade item within an exhibitor’s application. And, always seek out unique work within a category.
