Good Things about this Art Fair:
There is a lot of energy at this show and the quality of products is quite high.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
The only problem I’ve encountered at the show was that in 2017, there was a booth giving away ice cream samples. This is not art. My booth was about 6 away from the ice cream company's and people were still just walking by, not paying a bit of attention to the art because they were focused on eating.

It was a very hot weekend so just about EVERYONE stopped in at this booth. This booth should have been kept in the food area at the park and not in the art area. I hope the sponsors realize the huge problem this caused and have rectified it for this year.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
I think artists located on Main St. and West Ann Arbor Trail do better than other areas.

Wow. Be prepared for potentially extreme weather. Two out of the three years I’ve done the show, severe thunderstorms popped up quickly. There was so much rain in 2016 that my storage bins were suddenly floating around.
