What is your website?
Worst show ever and why
All in my opinion

Art On The Rockies - Edwards, CO (They may call it Vail, CO but it is not)
- Extremely low traffic count that was only a small % of stated attendance. Way too many artists for this size crowd.
Full Review

Sloan's Lake - Pulled out before it was a complete disaster. Show was run by Danna Tullis of Colorado Event Design. Just search on AFI to find more opinions about her shows including one in Salida, Parker and Longmont.

Hi Steve, I believe we met at the Vail Art Festival correct?

If anyone complains about the Edwards show, I guess we can reply "We told you so". They have to be a dumber than dirt optimist  to do it IMO.
