I did this show also. I am a jewelry artist. The sales were horrible. The promoter actually has an art tent and is selling their art. No contact or help after you get your spot. When time for everyone to leave, the road was blocked by several including promoter before the time to tear down so no one could get out. Parking was across the street of 4 lines and 2 blocks down. There was also a city parking meter lady that stood and watched if you parked close to your tent to unload or load. Good things about this show that it was close to where I live, otherwise I would have really been in the hole. I did not see any advertisement anywhere... there is no judging or awards so profit, profit?

Good Things about this Art Fair:
Great, very visible location, no bad booth spots, easy load-in/load-out.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Advertise a bit more. It seemed that they were more into promoting their show the following weekend instead of pushing for attendance/sales at this one.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
It was a very well run event. No artist amenities, but there were real bathrooms. Plenty of room for storage behind your booth. Very pleasant show. I just wish sales were better.

People were buying, somewhat. I saw several big pieces walk by. Not enough volume for most artists to do well.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
This show was advertised as the "12th annual," but it had actually not been done for the past 5 years or so. It was apparently a good show before that. This was the first year it was being revived. Wish that was disclosed as it would have changed my decision to participate (probably why it wasn't disclosed).
