I have done this show twice and absolutely love it. The organizers, volunteers, community, local artists and those who come to shop are stellar. The art they accept into the show is also excellent.

The awards are generous and, having attended the show twice and been in the show the same number of times, are fair.

The only negative I can think of is that you need to diet for a week or so before you get to the show. They feed the artists well...

Good Things about this Art Fair:
This is an artist friendly show to say the least. Easy load-in and out, host homes for traveling artists, low booth and app fees ($85/$20 but that is from memory only). Sales did not reach $2k for me, but were nevertheless 20x my booth fee, plus I moved to the area by the time the show happened, so costs were very low overall. I'm really looking forward to being part of this show year after year if they will have me.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
I am sure that there are years when there are negatives about this show as with any show, like weather, competing events, etc, but this year there really were not any.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Just research to see if your work is a good fit, but the crowd seemed to me to have pretty diverse tastes.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
I thought the crowd size for the area was pretty steady but some said it was light this year, so that means it is usually better!
