Good Things about this Art Fair:
Easy load in/out, friendly staff, reasonable booth fee. Pleasant location.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Advertised more, or something to bring in people who actually wanted to buy something. Lots of "art show zombies" walking around.

This was an "everything has to be inside your booth" show, but that was only enforced with a couple of people (my neighbor and I) while others had things all over the sidewalks behind their booths.

Show hours on Sunday went until 6, we could have easily packed up at 4 and not missed anyone.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
I did this show last year and it was a completely different vibe. This year there was no energy, very low crowds on Sunday (and we had to be there until 6 when the crowds died at 2.)

I didn't even come close to making my booth fee. One of my neighbors (a local even) did $20 all weekend!

Additional Commentary on this Show:
This was one of my better shows last year and this year was terrible. Not sure I'd do it again.
