Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I'm new here and not sure if this is the right forum (or if the topic has been done to death. I did try searching before I posted!).
After seeing photos of the horrible storm at the Columbus Arts Festival last weekend, it occurred to me that having a "storm emergency protocol" for me and my teenage son, who usually helps me, to follow would be an excellent idea. I have weathered some moderately scary thunderstorms, but nothing too severe.
Fortunately, I make jewelry, so I could probably clear my tables and secure my inventory in a matter of minutes.
I have an EZ Up canopy and a good set of canopy weights. I usually lower and zip my sides if there's bad weather brewing, but I'm not sure what, if anything, I should do beyond that. Lower my tent height? Is hanging on to the tent frame for dear life counterproductive in terms of its likelihood to bend?
I do think I'm going to buy another set of clamps and some pool noodles to combat water pooling on the canopy.
Any suggestions are welcome!
