Festival Submissions

Hygienic Artisans

For the past twelve years Hygienic Art has collaborated with New London SailFest to incorporate an additional artistic element into the city's largest weekend festival. Hygienic Artisans will occupy Bank Street between Golden and Pearl to create an atmosphere of art and culture by recruiting artists, DIY crafters, makers, and unconventional vendors.

In true Hygienic spirit, the Hygienic Artisan Market (formerly Bizarre Bazaar) is a festive, outdoor market space where people can expect the unexpected, and unearth signature crafts from artisans who create the unusual as well as beautiful.

Early bird special, before May 1st: $100**
May 1st - June 1st: $125
After June 1st: $150
Electricity hook-up fee (optional): $80 per booth

**Applications received before May 1st will have their name & website listed on hygienic.org
