"Hi Christine, I don't know how well your art etchings would do at Sunfest.  From what I recall I haven't seen art etchings at the event.  Being traditional art that may work in your favor.  If you live in Ohio though, I am…"

"Thanks Bill and Susan for the report.  Of course, with all shows, you should do some research like Kelly has mentioned.  It just makes sense that you always know what you are applying to and know what to expect from the show."

Sunfest - West Palm Beach - Florida's largest music and arts festival

Susan and I have been exhibiting at this event for 10 years or more.  The art section is considered secondary to the music lineup.  But what we have found out over the years is that the crowds are strong and there are many loyal art buyers that attend Sunfest for the art first and the music 2nd.  The event is located on A-1A right on the water.The jury fee is $30 with the booth fee being $300.  Any corner location is an additional $50 and there are many more requests than available corner…See More
