Tulsa International Mayfest is currently accepting applications from performing and visual artists for its 41st anniversary festival, scheduled for May 16-19.
Mayfest features approximately 100 fine visual artists and 20 crafts people during the four-day festival. Entries are professionally judged according to strict guidelines through a blind jury process.
Many participating artists in recent years reported record sales after Mayfest; therefore, competition for booth space is increasing each year. Mayfest artists work in various mediums, including wood, clay, paints and more.
"Mayfest is a real jewel in the crown of Tulsa's entertainment," said Kevin Byrne, a potter and past Mayfest artist. "It's a great way to see quality art and a great way to show my pieces to Tulsa."
Additionally, Mayfest showcases more than 75 performers on three outdoor stages each year. Musicians from all genres have the opportunity to receive exposure and recognition from more than 350,000 attendees during the event. Musicians from rock to blues and country to jazz all performed in 2012.
