What are the best things about art fairs
Good Weather- Good Sales
Best show ever and why
Howard Alan St Armonds Circle -Sarasota Fl around 1995- Sold every piece I took to the show- My husband kept taking them and delivering them as I sold them. Finally had to put a sign on my booth that said "Thank you Sarasota"
Worst show ever and why
Everglades City Seafood Festival - Everglades City, Fl in the early 90's. I did not belong at the show- lots of beer drinking partyers- weather turned bad right in the middle of the first day- had to hold my tent down with my body weight- saw two other tents blow over mine thru my skylight.

Kansas City Plaza- beautiful weather- great art- lots of people- good music- good time.  I was in KC this weekend on vacation so I was not in the show but I stayed in a hotel down on the plaza and saw the show go up and I saw it go down so I thought I would write a review as a spectator.  I am originally from Kansas and my family is in the area so I try to make it to KC on this weekend every year.  Usually the weather does not cooperate but it was incredibly…

Although, I live not far from Denver, I've never been to the Cherry Creek festival. However, they had a couple of clips on the TV news last night depicting several exhibitors working to survive the huge monsoon rains that hit the front range. Although not like the really heavy rains along the Gulf Coast, they still got a couple of inches. Many streets were flooded, including stretches along I25, which were shut down. For what it's worth, the monsoon season typically happens this time of year in Colorado, with high winds earlier in the year.

Appreciate the feedback on the Coconut Point show. I think they should cordon off parking for show patrons, but that involves security and buy-in from retailers in the mall.
