Apollo Beach—they call it the Manatee Art Festival—I call it toast

Posted by Nels johnson on April 18, 2018 at 11:20am 0 Comments

I have done it for more than 10 years and could usually grind out $1500-$2000 and I slept in my own bed.…

We had excellent cool weather, decent crowds, about 15000 total.

Most artists made 6-10x their booth fees.

This is a three day show with no evening hours.

You can setup either on Wed. Or Thursday before the show.

At teardown, you can scrum with the…

Thank you Nels for confirming exactly what I feared would happen.  Glad  didn't drive from Ft. lauderdale for the show.

Art Attack Ft. Myers 2 weeks ago was a bad enough experience.
