Best show ever and why
Worst show ever and why
Steamboat, Colorado. It was my first year. I signed up for an art festival that was the third one in Steamboat in less than a month. It was after the tourists left for the season. Many folks zeroed. I did not, but still did not cover costs.
Lesson learned, I signed up the next year for the first art festival of the season in Steamboat. Had a very good show. Locals still had "art money", tourists were in town.
