The director and staff are fantastic! I won an award at this show.
the commitee made some serious changes this year, including turning our booths around 180* and having the public deal with a new traffic pattern. I was 100% sure that this would not work, but I was wrong! In my section of the park, at least, the public accepted the new pattern easily. I have a track record at this show of over 30 years, and this year was right at the top of the list. Although the prettiest view on the show circuit is now behind me, I am looking forward to next year, already!
.A well run show, plenty of preshow communication, nice artist amenities, pleasant staff. Director took the time to come around and meet everyone. Well balanced art selection, well arranged. Load in and out, no issues. Sales were not spectacular but definitely solid, especially on Sunday. Perfect weather, I’m sure that helped. Hope to be back.
Layout of show was so well designed. Better layout than I have ever seen here before. Set up like a gallery . The people attending show loved it. Best sales I have ever had at this event. Taking down was so organized. I will definetly apply next year !
I really enjoyed this show and did well this year! They get a TON of people! Both days there were lines just waiting to get in and then consistent flow all day long, and the festival goers were buying. Its a beautiful location under the big trees, in open grassy areas, by a lake. Its an easy Friday set up too. The show seems to be strongly supported by the community too. All staff members are very helpful.
