Good Things about this Art Fair:
This Show is in a New York State Park which is lovely during the changing of the leaves, so most Western New Yorkers want to take the ride out to this area of the country.

It is held over the Columbus Day Weekend and while the weather is iffy, as a former attendee I know people come out in all kinds of weather for this.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
You can be put in a bad spot. There are dead ends, and such that lend itself to poor traffic.

I mistakenly asked for a corner and it cost me $60 more for the spot... oops. Upon further contemplation, it might not have been a bad thing because you can get stuck at an end at this show.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
LAYER your clothes. It is freezing in the morning and hot in the afternoon and then freezing when you leave.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
It is not really a fine art show, it is a craft show, but a very nice one.
