Breaking News!!!

 

THERE WILL BE A NEW REQUIREMENT FOR ANY ARTIST ATTENDING ANY OF THE DESERTFEST EVENTS THIS YEAR. UPON ACCEPTANCE, YOU WILL BE EMAILED AN EXHIBITOR RELEASE FORM THAT MUST FILLED OUT, SIGNED, DATED AND RETURNED TO ME RIGHT AWAY, OR YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SHOW!

 

 

WE ARE RETURNING TO SADDLEBROOKE RANCH! SaddleBrooke Ranch was snowed out in 2019 with over 12” of snow the night before setup!!! With the new country club finished and this being the first show there in 3 or 4 years, we expect this to be a great show! The residents have been anxious for us to return, so expect this to be a big deal! 

 

PEBBLE CREEK DESERTFEST IS BACK! This has become a show that everyone has looked forward to and it fills up fast! Don’t wait too long to get your applications in for this show or you will miss out!

 

ROBSON RANCH!  We did a 2 day show here last year and it was a great success! This growing community always turns out really well for our shows here! Plus this year, there will also be a home and life style event going on that weekend too, so lots of people will be attending the show area!

 

ONCE AGAIN, NO FEE CHANGES FOR 2020! We continue to work with the property management groups where we show to hold the line on our show fees! Some of the lowest fees in the state!

 

OUR SHOW FEES ARE AMONG THE LOWEST OUT THERE AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO ALLOW ONLY FINE ARTS AND CRAFTS IN OUR SHOWS.

NO BUY SELL OR IMPORT ITEMS ARE EVER ALLOWED IN OUR SHOWS!

 

Here are a few points to keep in mind when comparing our shows with others:

 

We use ads in local newspapers, send out email blasts to all homes in the communities for every show we do and use beautiful street signs and banners to direct the public to our show location.

 

All DesertFest events are advertised all over the state on TV, radio and state wide newspapers.

 

We provide more booth space at no additional cost to you. No fee for corner locations.

 

We provide enough space to display your work on the outside walls, and most shows have room for storage of extra artwork or inventory, behind the booth.

 

Setups and take downs are much easier because most of our shows allow for drive up room, or a very short carry distance.

 

We have spent considerable time researching and securing profitable show locations. Our show sites are in affluent communities containing a large amount of people who own second homes.

 

Although we have plenty of available space in our shows, we limit the number of booths to create the best sales environment possible for each of our artists, while still drawing the buying public with plenty of choices.

 

We NEVER oversell a show or oversell a particular category; we want every artist to have the best chance at having great sales and we never allow buy sell or import work in our shows!

 

Thanks to all who do our shows, and for spreading good words about them.  I constantly get new artists inquiring about future shows; most tell me one of you told them to call!

 

Here’s wishing all of us a great 2020 season!     Alan & Vickie Smith
