Atlanta Arts Festival September 12 & 13 3rd Annual Atlanta Arts Festival Piedmont Park 200 Artists Deadline: April 27
You are invited to apply to become one of 200 jury selected participants for this beloved autumn festival. Produced by a highly qualified staff and a strong pool of committed volunteers, both sharing multiple years of event production and promotion in the City of Atlanta, the festival is dedicated to showcasing talented artists from throughout the country for its enthusiastic art buying crowd. Expect total professional management which includes: * a team with vast experience in event production and artist market management * sponsorship development * professional public relations and marketing Here are two interesting details that should be of interest to you: 1. Despite the drought conditions in Atlanta that have caused the cancellation of four events in Piedmont Park the Arts Festival has been granted the use of the park. This enables them to insure the continuity of a relatively new event in this popular location. This is good for the festival and good for you! 2008 Festival Commemorative Poster Artwork by
2. Julie Tepp and her staff understand the dynamics of bringing the "right" people to the event. Last year they turned down sponsors that would have brought large crowds to the park because it was not the audience they were seeking. It is not their goal to bring record numbers to the festival, but to bring buyers. This in turn is not exactly good for the Festival's bottom line, but it is smart strategy for a longer term view of building a quality event. Intriguing, isn't it?
