Good Things about this Art Fair:
Low booth fees.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
They could have done a better job in several ways:
* Been honest that this was a craft & art show and
not an art show as advertised.
* Policed load-in area as promised. Vehicles were
parked - unattended - for hours.
* Provided booth sitting and water.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Be aware that this - despite the name - this is mostly a craft show. Think machine-cut acrylic magnets, bean-filled eye mask, baby bonnets and white boards painted with "life's a beach."

Load in is awful. Charlevoix is tight parking and driving anyway but the organizers make it worse by coning off the load-in areas so tight you can't get in without stopping in the middle of the street, getting out and moving cones.

Be aware as well that the location is on a terraced park so you're either going down steps or down a slope.

Good Things about this Art Fair:
Nice part of town. Nice staff

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Nightmare to set up if you are not just near main road. Steps to go down if your booth if on grassy area

Too many buy/sell. Very few real artists.

All timers are getting best spaces, despite many are poor quality.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show: Don,t do this show in June and July, there is
another show in August that is fine art, hard to get in!!!!

I will apply next year for August.
