Notice of Change in Fees

The City of Boise has informed us that they now require event organizers to collect a Vendor Fee for each artist, in the amount of $75. Despite all event costs to the Boise Art Museum increasing this year (shuttle buses, security, equipment rentals, portable restrooms, marketing, etc.), we are being mindful of this new cost and not increasing the BAM Art in the Park application or booth fees, as a result. The BAM Art in the Park booth fee will remain $100.

The City of Boise Vendor Fee and the BAM Art in the Park booth fee will be due upon acceptance, by the deadline June 7, 2023 (total of $175). The BAM Art in the Park booth fee is partially refundable until July 7, 2023. The City of Boise Vendor Fee is non-refundable.

Application Fee $40*
Booth Fee $100
