It’s hard to believe that April is almost over, and the month of May is right around the corner. The winter season in Florida is officially over after this weekend (for our Art Festivals), and we will be heading up north next month. Then, we will be making our way out West for the Western Tour.

We wanted to share with you our favorite crowd shots of April:

Become A Sponsor!

Standard

There isn’t a better way to gain exposure for your company than at an art or craft festival. At our events, we only allow artists and fine crafters who hand-make their own work. Any other business you may see are sponsors.

If you are a sponsor, you will be given a table and chairs for the show. Your company will be exposed from anywhere to 15,000 to over 100,000 people. Additionally, your company logo will be included in all our advertising.

Alexandria Application Due!

Standard

Attention Artists! We wanted to give you a final reminder that our 9th Annual Alexandria Festival of the Arts applications are due on May 2, 2011! Remember, this show is handled differently than our other shows (in regards to the jurying process).

Most of our shows have an “on-going jury”, which means you can apply until the show is full. Even when the show is full, we still accept for the wait list. For the Alexandria Festival of the Arts, once the deadline is past, we will not be accepting any more applications. The jurying for this show is done only once!

You can find applications on our website HERE or on Zapplication.

This is one of our top shows, and it’s certainly one you don’t want to miss out! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (561) 746-6615 or info@artfestival.com.

Art Festivals Have Great Exposure!

Standard

There is no better way to gain exposure for your artwork than at an art or craft festival. Art & craft festivals produced by Howard Alan Events and American Craft Endeavors get anywhere from 15,000 to over 100,000 patrons per show. This is major exposure!

At our art festivals, artists will be able to showcase their artwork in front of potential clientele. Once artists meet the patrons and make a sale, they need to continue marketing themselves. A great way to stay in touch with clientele is to create a mailing list. By creating a mailing list, artists can let the patrons know what shows they will be exhibiting in and/or any new artwork they may have.

Another essential at art festivals is to have a business card. It’s very common for someone to absolutely love an artist’s work, but they need to “think about” the purchase. If an artist has a business card handy, then the patron will be able to contact the artist at a later time. You never know their current circumstance!
