The Bayside Village BID is looking for artists to feature in its upcoming Arts and Crafts fair.

Queens artists looking for their big break can find it in Bayside.

The Bayside Village Business Improvement District (BID) wants the borough’s creative minds to display their original work during its upcoming third annual Arts and Crafts Festival.

“We’re excited,” said Lyle Sclair, the BID’s executive director. “It really just provides an opportunity for people to plan a day to just stroll up and down Bell Boulevard and see what they have in their backyard.”

The outdoor art show will be held April 26 from noon to 5 p.m. near the Bayside Long Island Rail Road station.

Local artisans — selling anything from paintings, clothing, jewelry, sculptures and photography — are wanted.

Last year, about 15 vendors took part in the festival. Sclair said he hopes to double the number this spring.

“After such a long winter, we want to bring people back to Bell Boulevard and walk the streets,” he said.

Those interested can call the BID at 718-423-2434 or click here.
