NEW for 2024: FAW Executive will email key takeaways from the Artisan Survey, financial report, and Zoom meeting link, prior to the wrap up meeting. If your house has any questions about that information, or comments/questions not included in the artisan survey, please join us at the Zoom wrap-up meeting on October 29, 2024. Your input is needed and important discussions happen during the meeting.


NEW for 2024: no Passport Prizes as of 2024. There will be digital and printed
Attendee surveys.

Can I be part of the FAW if I can’t be open on Sunday?

  • Yes! You can choose "Open Saturday Only". We will note it on all channels of advertisement.

I don’t want to be outside, but I want to be part of the Art Walk. Can I still take part?

  • We are advertising the Frederick Art walk as an outdoor, accessible event, and people will be expecting that. A lot of our shoppers like having the event outdoors. It's also important for this event to be as accessible as possible. Please keep that in mind as you set up.

My house has space for another artist/I'm an artist looking for a space. Is there a way to connect us?

  • We’ve discontinued the Homeless Artist Registration. But send an email to, and we’ll try to help you out. No guarantees.

Ready to apply?

You’ll need an active Google account (like a gmail address) to open the application. If you don’t have one, you can use one of ours to apply. Contact the FAW Registrar. to get the email address and instructions on how to use it before you start.

To complete the application, you will need the following information for each artist at your location:

  • Each Artists Name and/or Business Name

  • Each Artists social media, web and email address

Three descriptions of their art:

  • a 1-word description, like “woodworking” or “painting”

  • a 6-word short description, like “wood folk art sculptures” or “acrylic and watercolour painting”

  • a 50-word long description that talks a bit about the art and the artist, and what makes it unique.

NEW for 2024: This is important, so we can attach the photos to the correct artist.

Photos MUST be named as: NumberStreet-ArtistFirstNameLastName#.jpg (or .png) where “#” is the photo number from 1 onwards.  Example: the JPEG images for Jane Doe at 32 Krug St. must be named 32Krug-JaneDoe1.jpg,
32Krug-JaneDoe2.jpg, etc. If you register as your business name, use your business name.
Example: 32Krug-ArtByJim1.jpg, 32Krug-ArtByJim2.jpg, etc. 


Using new photos each year helps to keep attendees interested in what you offer. Send us well lit, clear photos so that your work looks great!    

If the individual file size is too big or has an extension other than .jpg or .png, the system won’t let you complete the application. If you’re having trouble, check each photo individually. You may need to go back to the artist and ask them to adjust and resend you the photo(s).
