This review was written on the night after the festival. I've taken so long to post it because I'm from this area and there are so few opportunities for the amazing Artists here - I don't want to do anything to jeopardize any of them. But I also owe…Continue

This is specifically what it said that made me think it "might" be cancelled. "Our tent company is planning to bring in a tent from Phoenix and with some luck Ruth HOPES the show will proceed as planned.

Just got home from Austin, TX, did the Old Pecan Street Fall Festival again. Yes this festival has tons of buy/sell, music and food. Setup is 5:30 am Saturday morning ( drive right up to your booth) and the show closes at 8pm. This show is not for the faint at heart, is a hard 1st day. The day started very slow, with some drizzle around 11 am. At about 2pm it like some told people to start buying in my booth. The frenzy lasted for about 4 hrs. I did more in that 4 hrs than I do at some smaller shows. Sunday was a typical Sunday sales. It opened at 10 and closed at 8. Again drive up to your booth to load up. Because we have done this show for the last 2 yrs, spring and fall, we have created a customer base which are looking for us. This really helped with sales both days. This show was a 7 even though my travel expensive from tucson and the booth fee is 515.00.
