Plans are well underway for the 2018 Almost Heaven BBQ Bash to be held on the grounds of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum the weekend of June 15-16, 2018.
A limited number of outdoor spaces will be available on Friday and Saturday for those offering unique, hand-crafted items (no 3rd party distributor products please). 2017 attendance was estimated at approx. 15,000+, and we anticipate bigger crowds this year.
The initial group of crafters and artists has been selected and notified. Some spots may still be available based on uniqueness of products, so applications are still available here.
Please review and download the appropriate information and application:
~ Artists, Crafters, & Exhibitors (Non-Food): 2018 Application – Crafters & Vendors
