*** COVID-19 UPDATE ***

  • The Barn FOTA committee has made the difficult decision not to host a live event in 2020

  • A virtual event will be hosted online during Barn FOTA weekend, from the morning of Friday, September 25 through the evening of Monday, September 28

    • The virtual FOTA website will contain a digital street map that visitors can scroll through as though they are walking along Main Street in Remsen​

    • Booth icons for arts & crafts, food products, nonprofit organizations, and performers will link to the vendors' preferred websites

    • On their personal sites, vendors will showcase many of the items typically available at the in-person event, allowing visitors to purchase unique items that have become an annual tradition

  • Vendors that have been accepted into the fall 2020 show will be contacted by the festival committee directly with information regarding how to participate


​Applications for the 2020 Barn Festival were due by January 15, 2020.

  • Please note that this is an outdoor show

  • Wind, rain, and uneven ground can be problematic - please plan accordingly

  • Failure to comply with any Barn FOTA rules may result in your exclusion from future events


Decisions of the jurying committee are final and inquiries questioning or disputing the juror's decisions can not be answered. Please note, due to a significantly high volume of applications and a strong push for new and different items, there will be some rotation out of previous vendors, and not all applicants are able to be accepted or placed on the standby list. 


Event Setup

The assigned setup times for vendors will be included in the August mailing. Friday setups are staggered from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

For those who can't make it for the Friday time slots, call for prior approval to set up Saturday morning from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. There will be volunteers checking people in at the north end of Main Street during that time.
