Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Saturday night a freak storm came up at the Indiana State Fair and destroyed the main stage and killed four people, sending many more to the hospital.
So here we go again. Just as these storms have wreaked havoc on much smaller tents at art fairs it even happens at the big events. The Indiana State Fair is one of the biggest ones in the country and a large crowd had gathered to hear the band, Sugarland.
Monday morning the regular staff meeting in preparation for Labor Day weekend's Arts, Beats & Eats in Royal Oak was even more intense preparing for even more disaster precautions. I'm sure everyone of you who participates in outdoor events understand the fragility of their situation when severe weather approaches. Please reevaluate your tents and weights and keep in mind possible disaster when you are setting up.
