Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Hi everyone,   Has anyone ever done the Festival of the Arts in Libertyville, IL, put on by the David Adler Music and Arts Center.  Show information says that it has been going on for more than 30 years.

Thanks for any input you're able to contribute.

I was never impressed  with it.  Quality has been very uneven over the years.  It's 15 minutes from my house and I don't even bother to go anymore.  Sorry I couldn't be more encouraging.  

(If you decide to do it, the best cupcakes in the world are across the street from it at Lovin' Oven Cakery)

Thanks very much Geri,

I'm trying to look for backup for a show for the same weekend that I doubt I'll get into.  I'm glad to know about this, and save me a 5 1/2 hour trip!


I used to do it, a long time ago, when I was just starting out. I’d say it was only suitable for locals. Some potters I know have done it for years, but they don’t travel overnight anywhere.
