Best thing about this art fair:
The 2017 event was held the day before Father's Day. Our sales were great. The attendees were anxious to buy our products.

I like the date, the location and the size of this show. 2017 was the first show for us. We will definitely be back for 2018. Hat's off to the volunteers for doing a great job.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
This is a young show in that this is their third year. I have participated in all three years. Each year the show gets a little bigger and better.

There are other activities going on at the show such as musical and dance entertainment which has gotten bigger as well, but so far has not impacted the art vendors.

This year they changed the location of the artist booths to be around a green space between two roads. The location was great for tent set up.

The quality of artists participating is fairly high....no crafty stuff. And for me, the number of jewelry artists was limited and each jewelry style was different and unique.

Each year my sales have significantly increased at this show, and I definitely plan to attend in 2017.

I am not sure this is true for all artists as some indicated their sales were not as expected. I temper this with I work hard to smile and speak to every customer and promote my work. I believe this makes a difference in s ales - to engage with customers and not sit in the back of the booth. Just my observation. :-)

Good Things about this Art Fair:
Nice one day show the third Saturday of June in a semi-resort/vacation area. Hours are 10am -6pm.

Promoters are very helpful and accommodating. Community seems very supportive of this festival and interested in supporting the arts.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
This was the second year for this show. They are having some growing pains and working to find just the right mix of art, entertainment, food, etc for their festival.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
If you are local or have a free place to stay this one day show may be nice to add to your show list.

The show doubled in size from their first event last year. My sales also doubled! :-) It will be interesting to see what they do next year.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
This year they had approximately 60 artists. Jewelry artists totaled 5 and each were very different. This was refreshing not to have too many of the same type of art.

All artists were quality and no manufactured items.

This is predominately a resort/vacation community and is undergoing an extensive revitalization.

The community seems very supportive of the arts and I am glad to be one of their first participating artists.

Sales were brisk for most of the day.
