Years in the Art Fair Business


First show ever

I think our first regular two-day juried art festival was Pioneer Days in High Springs, FL in 2010.

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Meeting people, explaining our work.

Best show ever and why

Possibly Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. They hold our record for greatest sales one year but can vary widely year-to-year (for consistent good sales, Melbourne is better). But Fernandina Beach takes their festival seriously with a parade, fireworks, other activities.

Worst show ever and why

Pumpkin Festival in Bradenton, FL. Let's just say it wasn't our niche.

Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

It was a neighboring artist at one of our festivals, but I don't remember which one.
