Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Call for Artists: La Quinta Signature Art Event 2020 - new!

March 5 - 8
La Quinta, California
La Quinta Civic Center Campus
Thursday through Sunday
10 am - 5 pm
220 Artists
Deadline: October 16
Application fee $50
Booth fee: 12' x 12' $300, 12' x 24' $600, 12' x 36' or larger $900

The promoters may have changed but the event will 
remain the same. 
An extensive marketing campaign is targeted to reach 25,000 affluent art patrons to celebrate the virtuoso talents of the finest national and international artists.
La Quinta Signature Art Event 2020 produced by SCOPE Events, LLC combines the talents of Paul Anderson, former Managing Director of Sausalito Art Festival and Kathleen (Kat) Hughes, former Event Manager of La Quinta Arts Festival. Their past experience will set a new standard for quality, variety, innovation and sheer scope of artists. The goal is to emulate and enhance the original legendary festival of the past 37 years.
The setting remains waterside at the stunning Civic Center Campus surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains. It has been called the most beautiful festival site in the country.
The event 2020 will draw art enthusiasts from the affluent Coachella Valley, patrons from the coastal market and the devoted snowbirds who double the valley population throughout the winter. In addition, both the polo crowd and tennis fans who arrive the weekend before the BNP Tennis Tournament opens will be our target.

La Quinta Signature Art Event 2020 is a commission art event. Artists are required to pay 20% of all art sales that are a result of participating in La Quinta Signature Art Event 2020 either during the event and/or as an art commission created specifically for an art patron after the event ends. This allows the event to offer low booth fees. The risk is shared between the Promoter and the Artist. If an Artist doesn't sell well, then there is lower cost to participate than at a booth fee only show.   

Our website is currently being created and our office in La Quinta will open its doors in October. Please read all information about our new exciting art event in ZAPPLICATION

word on the street is there are very few openings as last years folks are already in.

That's kind of a good thing (if true), Paul. New/old event with new organizer means the artists love the show ... I know many are keeping their fingers crossed for this to work. BUT from being in the show organizer seat I learned the hard way that what they "say" and what they "do" is not to be depended upon.
