I did the Lake Wales art show 2017 & 2018 and sales were over $1500. In 2019 sales were $100, temps in the 90s and people stayed home and definitely stayed away from tents in the sun. I stayed away in 2020 except to visit art friends and look situation over as I live nearby. All tents in the shade. Good, cept this year it was cold. WAY fewer artists. Almost looked like more awards given out. I like this show and plan to do it again but alternate it with another one I also like, same weekend usually. Cheap stuff sells.

Good Things about this Art Fair:
Nice location in a pretty park on a lake. Super easy load in/out, many booths have parking right behind them.

Volunteers are great! Extremely low fees, decent prize money.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Needs to work on advertising! Attendance was very low. I love the low booth fees, but raising them a little and spending that extra $ on quality advertising would be worthwhile.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
This is a show where lower end items sell much better. I didn't see much in the way of large pieces being carried around.
