Booking Jack for your Festival

Jack demonstrates his broom making at several Folk Festivals each year. If you would be interested in having Jack come to your festival, there are a few things you need to know. Most importantly is to contact Jack as soon as you can, because he books up to a year in advance. Every show is different, so he works with each festival on a one-on-one basis. There is a fee for each demonstration. Jack normally receives an honorarium, room & board and .27¢ a mile one-way. Mileage fee and honorarium depends on the distance of the festival.

Hockaday Handmade Brooms provides their own display tent, which will fit into a 10’ x 20’ space. We are self-contained, and do not need electricity; but if available that is nice. Broom making demonstrations are done once an hour every hour; which means we spend all day making brooms. Many of the shows we have demonstrated at draw a crowd of 200,00 or more; but we also like the small town show.
