Love this show and do very well here, but the advice on booth space is spot on. One of the tightest fits ever! Set up early or you will have major issues trying to fit in. Work the crowd and they will buy. I saw some very big paintings go out the door last year. Looking forward to this year. I was in the woods and it was not fun. On the sidewalk this year and stoked for that. They were super accommodating to me to get that space. Love the local group that puts it on. Those folks really do care a lot!

Good Things about this Art Fair: This event is very well organized. It is a very easy show to get into due to the many exhibitors allowed,,,425 to be exact! The booth fee is very low compared to shows that are this big.

Bad Things about this Art Fair: The event is open but also tight depending on where your booth is located. There is no room between some tents for storage up near the carillon tower. If you have a location in the back towards the woods there is much more room.

Additional Commentary on this Show (or about this form): It states that 5,000-10,000 attend this show but I feel between the two days that atleast 25,000 have shown up.

I posted the above review, now think that it was a tad too upbeat. I'm still cleaning my tent, flats and artwork. And with all the $ taken in, to have no cash awards or artist food beyond donuts is amazing.
