Art Festivals Part 1
One thing I have found out living in Florida, people love their festivals! They really are a lot of fun to attend, and also to be a vendor. It is a great way to promote your creation. But you have to be very organized, focused and committed to your goal. This is the first article of a three part series, and things I learned this year about festivals!
I started getting “inventory” together about a year ago. It was just the love of painting at first, but then I started collecting paintings, LOL! Not all of your work is display worthy, so be sure to put your best stuff out there.
I had a goal of three festivals this year. They had to be within an hour drive of me. I didn’t want the expense of a hotel. I wanted to be able to come home and get something I may have forgotten, since this was my first year. Finding the festivals is relatively easy. Google the word festival ( and your area ) and you can find many! Be aware that your deadlines are usually months before the actual event. Planning is key!
