Good Things about this Art Fair:
This was the first year for this fair. The staff and volunteers were fantastic! They did everything they could to help the artists and keep us hydrated.

For a first show, they did a lot of things right.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
You can't do anything about the weather in Texas. Because of overwhelming rain, we were moved to a parking lot instead of the park area we were going to be in.

The problem with that was that we weren't visible by street traffic. It would have been great if there were more people coming in.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
I think this show is worth going to if you live close by. I stayed in a hotel and just made my expenses back.

I will probably do this show again though because I think there will be improvements with advertising.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
I can't say enough good things about the people running the show. They worked very hard throughout the event to help things go smoothly.
