Artist Agreements
By keeping booth fees low we expect all participating artists to aid in the marketing of this event. See Marketing below.

MARKETING

In order to keep booth fees lower than most other events, and to create a more successful event for everyone involved, we ask that each artist aid in marketing the Bazaar event. This does not require participants to spend additional money. 

Visit and follow Miskatonic Brewing Co. on Facebook and Instagram and please tag accordingly in your posts.

Invite your family, friends, and fans via social media, email, snail mail, messaging owl, whatever it takes! Taking the time to invite your fans to the Facebook event page, sharing the event to your social media platforms, and emailing fans has been a big help in the past.

Each artist will receive digital marketing material via email of images to use in your emails, posts, and IG Story.

DONATIONS

In keeping tradition, we expect every participant to donate a portion of their proceeds to a recipient of their choice.

A portion of Miskatonic's proceeds will benefit Worldbuilders, a charity founded by author Pat Rothfuss in order to use the collective power of readers, fellow authors, and book lovers to make the world a better place.  

If you are unsure of who to donate to, check out the list of organizations previous shows have helped below!

Donations are made on Scouts Honor. We will not be taking a portion of your sales, only your booth fee. It’s up to you do take care of donating!



 

Please mark yourself down as "Going" and invite your family, friends, and fanbase!
