Good Things about this Art Fair:
Easy show to participate in. It is a community event and the people turn out for it.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Music from stage, located down the hill from my booth, was occasionally loud. It did make communicating with customers difficult at times.

There was no communication about what time booth sitters would arrive to relieve us.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
This is a solid show, especially if you can tandem it with Bellevue and/or other Pacific NW shows. Next year is their 70th anniversary.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
Note that parking is about 1/2 mile from show, but you can drive in each morning. Sunday foot traffic was surprisingly light this year compared to other years.

Forecast was set for 94 degrees, which may have kept some folk away.

Good Things about this Art Fair:
One of my top shows! Omelet and pancake breakfast on Saturday and Sunday! Easy load, fairly easy load out.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Layout on the east side near the music and at the far end of each row on the east have lower number of shoppers.

Not the best food vendors.

Booth map for artist to review possible locations is hard to figure out. It need serious revision!

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Gate fee is charged. Loud music on the east side.

Can be hot, lots of trees for shade but they drop moss, dirty and leaves on your tent top. Some booths are in the blazing sun.

Refer to booth map when accepted. Some spaces have gaps as booths weave in and out of the trees in some areas giving a tiny corner. It a good show.
