Welcome Letter

Thank you for your interest in our 49th Annual MHS Second House Museum Craft Fair. We are so happy to announce that, after having to cancel our fairs last year, we are back now with fairs on July 10 & 11 and August 14 & 15.

Our fee for each fair for 10′ x 10′ space is $250. The fees are payable in full prior to July 1st for the July fair, prior to July 29th for the August fair. We are no longer accepting personal checks. All payments must be made by credit card in full to hold your spot.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and we are excited to announce that phases 1 and 2 of our construction of Second House are complete and work on the exterior of the building is now finished.

For the two weeks prior to the show, we blitz all of our social media pages and WLNG 92.1. The station runs 6 spots a day for the two weeks before and the weekend of the event.

Our roots go back to our first fair in 1971. Our current Second House Committee asks that you carefully read our exhibitor rules. IF your work is NOT as represented in your photos, your entry fee will be forfeited and you will be asked to leave the fair. Our committee members look not only at the quality of the work submitted, but we will also pay attention to the diversity of subject matter and what can sell in the Montauk to New York City area.

As we receive our list of PARTICIPATING CRAFTERS we will include links to their websites. Before and after the fair, our buyers can review the websites to order items and contact our artists.


Vendor applications are available through this website. After selecting your booth, click “add to cart,” and then “proceed to checkout” to fill out your online application.

Please email us at: montaukhistoricalsociety@gmail.com with any questions, and to provide any feedback from previous shows.

As per our history at the Second House Craft Fair, we will continue to supply trashcans and porta-potties… in the past everyone has done a wonderful job cleaning up their areas, please continue to do so. This year we will again continue with our delicious snacks and drinks for the hard-working vendors!

Montauk is now one of the top destinations in the country for summer traffic flow. We are among the best craft shows on the east coast and we thank YOU, our crafters, for continuing to support our efforts by supporting us.


Jessica James, Chair, Second House Committee
