Washtenaw Non-Profits (WNP) coordinates, administers and manages member participation in the annual July Ann Arbor Art Fairs. Washtenaw Non-profits is itself a non-profit organization; its sole purpose is to facilitate and coordinate membership, assign booths to members and to manage member participation in the Fair. See Policies, Rules and Regulations and About Us.
How can our organization get a booth? How does our org become a WNP member?
The Policies, Rules and Regulations provides all the information. If your organization qualifies for a non-profit designation; if it can meet the simple terms of compliance; and if it completes and submits all application materials, including fees: your org is a member-you get a booth (provided space allows). The application for WNP membership can be downloaded from this site. Double booths have been filled for 2019; only single booths are available.
How and when can our organization submit a membership application for a booth?
Completed applications are accepted beginning February 1st. (Applications received prior to this date will be returned.) Receipt of completed application materials and requisite 2 checks constitutes WNP membership.
