The Talbot Street Art Fair is recognized as one of the top art shows in the United States and is the oldest juried Art Fair in central Indiana which remains free to the public. The fair is held in the picturesque, historic Herron-Morton neighborhood on the near northside of Indianapolis. The Talbot Street committee is an artist driven network striving to improve and uphold the quality and creativity of it's exhibitors and are actively working to deny and remove buy/sell or representatives to participate.
Over 60,000 visitors come from near and as far as 100 miles away to view the artwork of 250+ artists from across the country. This event is well supported by the community in rain or sunshine with good buying energy. 
Ranked #44 in Sunshine Artist this year.
Artists can drive up to their booth to load/unload and set up the day before the event. Due to the historic nature of this neighborhood the narrow roads limit access to extra large vehicles and long trailers. Artists with these vehicles can dolly from close side streets or adjacent alleys. Security is on hand Friday afternoon thru Sunday evening. Artists' amenities include air conditioned restrooms, coffee with donuts on both mornings of the fair, water delivered through out the event, ample RV parking and limited reserved artists' parking but plenty of on street free parking nearby.
We have an aggressive marketing campaign including but not limited to radio, television, newspapers, flyers, bill boards, magazines, social media and on line advertisements.
On site judges will award $11,000 in prize money for artists in the 2018 fair.

It's a local show for me that I've done for a while. The crowds run the gamut from all economic levels. The immediate area is urban revival with high property values and younger professionals. Be prepared for heat with fans or shade as it is Indianapolis's welcome to summer, but regardless of weather, crowds come out.
