Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Good Afternoon Fellow Artists!
I was just accepted into a show put on by Paragon Art Festivals (Fairfax, VA) and was wondering if this is promoter is a good one to do a show with?
I will be doing the "St. James Court" (St. James section) in Louisville, KY the weekend before and am trying to decide whether to add on this other show. It will be a 10 hour drive so there will be a lot more expenses in gas/accomodations and food - and lately with the economy, don't know if it would be worth it?!
If anyone of you has participated in a show with them, and especially, if you are 2D (I am a painter), I would really appreciate any feedback I can get.

Thanks Leo - good information to have regarding the competing show. I did hear the same about the Fairfax spring show. I am brand new to Art Fairs, just beginning in August of 2010 - so I am learning about the shows - which ones to do and which ones not to. Thanks for sharing the information!
Forgive me if I'm wrong. The promoters' last name was Boroff and the show was also on Long Beach Island around the same time of year. I stand corrected! So please ignore my prior post, Julia, it sounds like this was a different promoter!
And if fact: my apoligies. I just looked it up and it was indeed Renaissance Craftables, not Paragon. I don't think I can delete what I said previously, but I now see my mistake. Thanks for the correction, Leo! I will not make this mistake again.
