FAQs & Rules
Due to the exclusive nature of this event, attendance is limited to those who have been selected for an invitation. Since the artists' contributions to the Festival are essential to its success, Invitations were based on client/customer lists of the participating artists. Invitations are non-transferrable. We anticipate that there will be a waitlist. Anyone wishing to attend, can ask to be put on the waitlist by sending a request to: OOAKDollFestival2@gmail.com
Since the artists have generously donated so much of their time and talent, we cannot expand the number of attendees to more than 120. These spots are coveted so we may not be able to accommodate non-collecting spouses or friends. We realize that this may be disappointing to many, but we are trying to allow as many OOAK collectors to attend as possible.
Registration includes: three dinners, two continental breakfasts and all entertainment/activities; access to the Festival events and exhibits; admittance to the salesroom; three souvenir dolls; option to participate in any special events and competitions and keep your final product (currently planned as two additional dolls).
Festival attendees will be given name badges and asked to wear them at all times to gain admittance to any and all functions.
Access to Festival Events
Only individuals registered for the Festival are permitted at any of the Festival functions. An exception to this rule is made for the SALES ROOM, where a dealer’s helper will have access to the salesroom, as well as an immediate family member of an attendee, to "help shop".
We are sorry, but this year, we are unable to provide a companion pass to spouses, travel partners, etc. to attend any Festival events.
