Good Things about this Art Fair:
I can't think of anything good I could say about this art fair.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
First, the promoter should promote this show heavily and not simply rely on signs and natural foot traffic as he is rumored to do (attendance reflects this).

Second, the event would be somewhat better attended if it were Saturday/Sunday and not Friday/Saturday.

Third, if the promoter showed up early and were easy to find once present, it would reduce a lot of stress.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
This show leans more toward crafts than fine arts.

There were a few artists who did not return the second day, and many reported making very little or nothing at all. I will not be doing this show again.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
Irrigation had run overnight the night before, and the ground was wet.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Could have been a great show. Colorado Events did not advertise at all. Businesses around the park didn't even know the event was happening. I feel like the promoter is taking advantage of the artists and taking our money.

This was a 3 day show with the option to just do 1 day. When I arrived the 2nd day the promoter had blocked one side of my corner booth and was about to block the other side (no selling area). Thankfully I showed up early enough to stop him.

Don't do this show.
