2016 Summer Shade Festival, Atlanta, GA
August 27-28, Grant Park
This show had me in such high hopes. Professionally done Artist Handbook, emailed out in plenty of time. Option to purchase an ad in the Festival Guide.

No evening before show setup, which means you have to set up starting at 5 am, and I had to go searching for someone to let me know where I would be setting up. No volunteers helping to unload to speed the…Continue
