What are the best things about art fairs
Showing off your talent and making sales
Best show ever and why
Waukee Arts Festival. Great atmosphere, organization, and sales.
Worst show ever and why
Callahan art show at Iowa State Fairgrounds. Organizers don’t take cards for booth fee, show is more craft oriented but is advertised as being art focused.
