What are the best things about art fairs

The best thing about art fairs is its like a big art party where you get to make money. You get to meet new artist, learn about new techniques, teach people about your art, and sell your stuff,

Best show ever and why

I am totally bias because I run this show but, The Virginia Highlands Festival. Its got so much to offer, it's in one of the most beautiful places in the country (The Blue Ridge Mountains) at one of the most beautiful times of the year (late summer), there is a ton of things to do in the little town of Abington, and there is an accompanying antique, music, history, and writers festival.

Worst show ever and why

not had a horrible one yet. But I'm assuming it would be one that had bad weather, poor facilities, bad management, and bad parking.
