Good Things about this Art Fair:
The weather was nice. The park was nice. Easy to set up and tear down.

The host, Danielle, has a hospitality tent with refreshments for the artists. She does make a point to speak to the artists.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Realize that timing is everything. This event was the same day as a large Art Festival downtown Naples.

There were soccer and baseball fields that were all used Sunday, thus the players took all the parking.

THERE IS NO ADVERTISING FOR HER EVENTS! She has small stake signage just before the venue. No radio, newspaper or even social media ads outside of her own page. None.

Low attendence at both shows I've done. Asked the few who stopped, and they said they didn't even know there was a show.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Danielle's Blue Ribbon events - run until she is able to fully advertise her events. It does have potential. But most of the artist I spoke to didn't even make back the booth fee.
