2016 was the first time I did this festival. The only downside to this event is the application process: you have to physically send in photos of your work rather than attach jpegs to an online application. The people working the event were great, load-in and out well planned. Well publicized. Great food. A lot of foot traffic. Great weather. I would say that art priced under $100 sells the best. In the future I would rent a tent for ease. It was as well attended as publicized.

Good Things about this Art Fair: Setup and breakdown were easy, bathrooms were close, weather was great (not real hot or windy). About a 4 hour drive from home. Hotel accommodations were arranged in part by the art show. Customers were friendly and appreciative of art work around me.

Bad Things about this Art Fair: Too much buy/sell, mixed in with the good art work a lot of buy/sell. Did not fill the show. A lot of rules set out at the last minute. Promoters do not care about the buy/sell, just want to make money. Have to give a donation in order to get registration packet

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show: The only reason I gave show a 2 for overall rating is because of all the buy/sell let into the show, and it not getting any better over the years. A lot of country.

Additional Commentary on this Show: I do not think this show is worth a 2 day drive, lots of disappointed artist. My neighbor left on Saturday night so there was a big empty space in front of my booth.
