"I am not familiar with this show, so I would defer to those who are.  But I do think if a venue change or date change is better for the show, now is the time to do it.  The public has been alerted to the changing rules and location of…"

"I would not move the Letchworth show to another location.  I used to do this show some years back, and I believe that the location of this show is almost more important than who is in the show. The location here is everything!"

"Most shows are in a state of lux. Cheery Creek just changed dates, and shifted to a nearby location, for this year. Bears canceling. I would say move the date, keep the same location."

"The above question came from the Arts Council who run the Letchworth Arts & Crafts show...a very popular event that has always been on the 3-day Columbus Day Weekend. It attracts a huge crowd to the over 300 exhibitors. It was cancelled in 2020…"

"Is this a new event? Would this be a big change on the usual date? Do you think the event can support 3 days of sales, which means more outlay for the exhibitors participating? Any idea why they are soliciting your input?"

What are the best things about art fairs
meeting other artist and viewing their art. listening to their story on how it was created.
Best show ever and why
Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival...organized, all the volunteers are always helpful and happy, there is lunch del'v to each booth each day of the event, hospitality tent for artist, and AWARD breakfast on Sunday. They give back to their artist.
Worst show ever and why
hard to pick one..the last year we did Roots and Rhythms
Honsdale Pa. after years of a very friendly and organized show, the new directory of event was very disrespectful to the artists, poorly organized, had no advertising in the program book. Had a care less attitude when approached.
