Dear Artist,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 10th Annual Dauphin Island Art Trail to be held on Dauphin Island on Saturday, October 12, 2024, from 9 AM to 4 PM. If accepted, we will confirm your exact booth location a week prior to the event. You are responsible for charging and collecting sales tax (10%) for the artwork you sell at the event. The Chamber will provide sales tax forms and an event volunteer will visit you that day with the forms to complete and send in after you get home. You pay NO fees to your retailer. Your sales are all yours. The size of the booth space is dependent on your location but, count on having the standard 10’x10’ outdoor area unless you are told otherwise. Tents should be no larger than 10’x10’.

As in the past years, there is an element of fun to the event…a sort of “Treasure Hunt” to entice patrons to visit all of the Art Trail locations. Here’s the plan: at any Art Trail location, patrons can pick up a Trail Map on the day of the event with the list of artists and locations on the reverse side. We’ll include instructions to patrons to have the Trail Map rubber-stamped at art trail locations, usually the host business or at a booth provided in Cadillac Square, to qualify for prize drawings at the end of the day. The artists will also help by reminding patrons to go inside the shop to have their map stamped. The drawing, which attracts a crowd, will be held at 5 pm at the Arts of Dauphin Island Gallery.

This event is different from a regular festival and so much more fun for all!! The prizes given in the past have ranged from a waterfront condo weekend package, restaurant & retailer gift certificates, artwork, and much more. Prizes this year should be even better. Please encourage friends & family to come out and enjoy the festivities. We are working on getting shuttle services for the event. Please note that the artists must be set up and ready no later than 8:30 AM on the day of the event and are required to stay until 4 PM.


This application is not a guarantee of acceptance. No resale items are allowed, the applicants must create the artwork or craft items! You will be notified by email once you are accepted. If you have questions, contact Dauphin Island Chamber of Commerce by email at Your commitment to participate in Art Trail will assure a successful event. Please complete the information below and mail this form to P.O. Box 5, Dauphin Island, AL 36528, with photos of your artwork/crafts and a check for $100 to be received by June 1 (*if you would like your artwork considered for the advertising poster). The deadline for all other applications is August 15. After August 15, the fee is $150. Please make your check payable to ‘Dauphin Island Chamber of Commerce’. When the show is full, no more applications will be accepted. But remember, acceptance is on a first come basis and space is limited so get your application in early. As a reminder, with most events of this nature, in the event of inclement weather, the booth fees are not refunded.

Thank you.
