Artists (Island wide): $65 per month (only one booth per Vendor allowed)

Artists are invited to participate and must keep with the spirit of “buy local.” To qualify as an artist you must be the producer of the art that you are selling and it must be made on the Big Island. Resale items do not qualify.

When you fill out your registration form please indicate what it is you produce so that the Kokua Kailua committee can review for your participation. Upon acceptance you are approved to only sell those items indicated on your registration forms. NO COFFEE or other food items including baked goods are allowed to be sold in your booth.

It has also come to our attention that there are several artists participating that also sell merchandise to downtown Kailua- Kona businesses. We are excited that you are participating. We are however concerned for our businesses that care is taken when pricing your items for this event. It is critical to the integrity of business that the prices in Kokua Kailua are the same as what is seen in the stores the whole rest of the month. If a prospective customer sees you selling your art at less than retail in the street and then much higher in the store that customer will no longer trust any of the pricing in that store. If the pricing matches then the store is a great continuation of your sales at Kokua Kailua and the artist makes more money. It is a win-win situation. The businesses in downtown have very high overhead. It is a challenge for them in this economy just as it is for you. It is important to share in the Aloha of this event.
