Breaking News!!!

WE ARE RETURNING TO SADDLEBROOKE RANCH! SaddleBrooke Ranch has been closed to shows for 3 or 4 years now with the construction of the new Country Club and facilities. Finally finished late this year, this will be a grand opening/DesertFest event! The residents have been anxious for us to return, so expect this to be a big deal!

 

 

ONCE AGAIN, NO FEE CHANGES FOR 2019! 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!

 

PEBBLE CREEK DESERTFEST IS TAKING A YEAR OFF. There will be no show this year a PebbleCreek. This has become a show that everyone has looked forward to, but management has decided to take a year off and then decide what to do for 2020 and into the future.

 

Robson ranch DESERTFEST IS TAKING A YEAR OFF as well.  We are still working on trying to get this location back as a regular 2 day show without the DesertFest and we will keep you posted on the outcome as soon as we know more.

 

 

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 EVERY ALLOWED IN OUR SHOWS!

 

 

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

 

We use full color ads in local newspapers for every show we do.

 

We send out email blasts to all homes in the communities that we are showing in.

 

We 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; we want every artist to have the best chance at having great sales!

 

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 2019 season!     Alan & Vickie Smith
