Recent Rule Changes

The Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree and Crafts Festival has made several changes to its craft booth rules.
First, we will allow homemade food items (including, but not limited to jams, jellies, or ciders) that have been prepared in a commercially approved kitchen. Please submit a copy of your proof of inspection when you turn in your Craft Registration Form. We do request that food items not be packaged for immediate, on-site consumption.

Second, the Jamboree will consider the addition of vendors who may sell or resell unique, cultural, or regional items, subject to the approval of the majority of the Board. These booths will be located on a separate street from the handmade arts and crafts. These booths will not be eligible for the craft awards. The Jamboree will also have a government related, informational booth section available.

If you have questions about any of the above changes, please feel free to contact us at or by calling 615-597-8500. We look forward to working together to improve the quality and variety of unique, handmade artwork and crafts.
