Fine Art & Craft Shows

Breaking News!!!

 

 

 

WE ARE ALL KEEPING OUR FINGERS CROSSED THAT LIFE WILL CONTINUE TO RETURN TO A MUCH MORE NORMAL ROUTINE! WITH THE GOOD NEWS THAT MANY OF OUR SHOW LOCATIONS HAVE GIVEN US DATES FOR 2022, WE ALSO HAVE TO SADLY REPORT THAT ALL DESERTFESTS HAVE ONCE AGAIN BEEN CANCELED. I KNOW WE ALL ENJOY THESE WONDERFUL LOCATIONS AND SHOWS, SO WE CERTAINLY HOPE THEY WILL RETURN VERY SOON!

 

OUR NOVEMBER GIFT SHOW IN GREEN VALLEY IS TURNING OUT TO BE A REAL HIT WITH GREAT SALES AND ARTIST PARTICIPATION! WE WILL HAVE THIS SHOW AGAIN THIS YEAR! THANKS TO EVERYONE THERE AT THE CONTINENTAL SHOPPING CENTER THAT MAKES THESE SHOWS POSSIBLE!

 

 

 

ONCE AGAIN, NO FEE CHANGES FOR 2022! 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
