Art fairs are always looking for ways to enhance the event both for artists and the attending public. This Fall the show will open on Fri. at 1pm and close at 8pm. We will be returning with the hugely successful Friday Ladies Night Out promotion that drew over 2000 women to line up for entry of Friday.

A robust marketing campaign is in effect with a variety of media partners.

Expect an elegant entrance gallery showcasing your art, community partnerships and other fresh components that create a wonderful regional marketplace for artists and their patrons.

The Suburban Collection Showplace is located in Novi, Michigan, situated in Western Oakland County, one of the nation's most affluent areas. It is familiar to patrons as a premier indoor venue for specialty events.

Over the past decade the Suburban Collection showplace has been host to premier indoor art fairs each year during the months of April and October. Attendance figures from these fairs have averaged in the tens of thousands.

Please note, last Fall's Great Lakes Art Fair was on the Michigan/Michigan State football game weekend. Let me tell you, folks, getting people to attend on a Saturday when that game is happening is tough. Of course football Saturdays are tough in lots of areas.

BUT they changed the dates this year so it would not coincide with that game. Michigan is playing Iowa (so it won't be a big deal in the area and Michigan State is having a bye week) -- so I'm thinking better attendance this year, plus closer to the holiday season. Live near? Worth a try.
