Good Things about this Art Fair:
Good attendance for a one day show; people willing to buy art and they appreciate the art that is displayed.

Small but popular park and the setting is great.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Possibly have more exhibitors. They only have 35-50 booths each year.

Given the number of enthusiastic people attending, the show could support more artists.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Apply early. Since they only have a few vendors, it fills up quickly.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
I submitted the following review on the blog: This is a one day show the Sunday before Labor Day from 10-5 pm. I did this show last year and had almost $1100 in sales; did the show again this year and had almost $1000 in sales.

The show had only 30 vendors so sales of this magnitude seems very good to me. Maybe my art fits well with the clientele. I recommend this venue for other artists in the area.

The booth fee is only $65 if entry is early. The show is also juried.
