Call for Artists: 38th Annual Greater Cincinnati Winterfair

November 25-27 
Covington, Kentucky
Northern Kentucky Convention Center

Presented by: Ohio Designer Craftsmen
220 artists
Deadline: July 8
Application fee: $27/Booth fee: $390-$765

The Greater Cincinnati Winterfair opens the day after Thanksgiving on one of the bsiest shopping days of the year.  This event attracts an average audience of 8,000 enthusiastic and loyal attendees from the tri-state area.

Located at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, across the river from Cincinnati, the venue provides easy show hours and wonderful amenities for participating artists.

The marketing:

We have a three-prong plan that includes print, digital and social media marketing that includes advertising in partnership with local television and radio stations, email blasts, postcard mailings, print ads and coupons in newspapers and gift guides. We utilize social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) to enhance marketing to young artists and attendees about the event and participating artists.  

We post updates, share information about artists and this year will experiment more with posting feature stories about participating artists to drive attendance to the event in general and the artist's booth specifically.

Artists participating in the Cincinnati Winterfair noted exceptional sales at this three-day event and also had this to add: "Great location, quality of work is good and staff is great!" Jaron Resser, an artist who participated in both Winterfair shows in 2015 has this to add: "Both the Columbus and Cincinnati Winterfair are well put together and offer some of the best artists a great opportunity to sell their works.
