We exhibited in our very first art and craft show in 1975 in Westwood, CA. Over the last 39 years we participated in hundreds of festivals all over the US, won numerous awards and ribbons, met and made friends with very talented people, witnessed many transformations of art and craft folks, heard and danced to incredible music, saw our children play, grow up and enjoy the fairs circuit atmosphere, and traveled to some incredibly beautiful places.

The years have caught up with us so camping out and sleeping in the van happens less frequently, but we still partake in fewer in numbers but better in quality festivals. Here is a list of some we did last year and others we plan to participate this year, if accepted. Hope to see you at one of them--it is definitely worth visiting them.

2016 Schedule with Brief Commentary

May 27-30, 2016.Norhtwest Folklife Festival.Our hometown festival in Seattle is a fantastic celebration of all: arts, crafts, music, dance, food, performances, ... Mostly nice weather again this year (a little rain on one day). A must for art/music/dance lovers.

Jun 17-19, 2016.Edmonds Arts Festival.Another local show for us. Well juried and attended.

Jun 23-26, 2016.Utah Arts Festival.Large, 4-days show with unusual hours: noon until 11pm. But given the heat, it works.

Jun 25-26, 2016.Rhinebeck Arts Festival.First year for us. Even though our booth was inside one of the buildings, the heat was not conducive for good sales.

Jul 9-10, 2016.Corn Hill Arts Festival. First year for us. The neighborhood is very much involved and supportive of the fair. Many volunteers make the show more enjoyable. Managed to win a second place award in category with a bit of prize $--thank you!

Jul 14-17, 2016.Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. 50th year marked this wonderful festival with great success for us. Managed to win a first place award in category with a bit of prize $--thank you!

Jul 23-24, 2016.LBIF (Loveladies) Arts Festival.. First year for us. The heat was unbearable--was very lucky to be inside and air conditioned building but had wrong booth size. Beautiful place to visit, but not a show for us.

Jul 29-31, 2016.Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival.First year for us and a filler show. Staged in downtown Syracuse. Very slow in sales largely because of location, heat and depleted blanket selection. Will give it another try next year.

Aug 5-7, 2016.Crested Butte Arts Festival.We did this show in the 1980's (camped near lake Irving) and came back this year with great success. It is a beautiful place to visit in the Rockies. Great show too, well organized with prizes. Super crowd.

Aug 12-14, 2016.Park City Arts Festival.Always a favorite. Great place to visit, well organized with prizes. Appreciative crowd.

Aug 13-14, 2016.Ridgway Rendezvous.Another beautiful place to visit in CO and camp out--the stars with the meteoroid showers are spectacular. Booths are in a beautiful park, main stage with music, super promoters. Small show in attendance but has great potential. A hike to Blue Lake is spectacular.

Aug 27-28, 2016.Palo Alto Festival of the Arts.On University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto (great restaurants!). Super variety of great artists. We have done this show for many years and will continue to do so.

Sep 2-4, 2016.Longs Park Arts Festival.First year for us and what a great surprise: beautifully located in a gorgeous park, large crowd, great sales, and hosted by a patron. But the way they treat the artists is remarkable: food galore (two scrumptious dinners, super breakfast) and willing volunteers--all promoters should learn from these folks! Great show despite the funny poles sticking inside your booth!

Sep 9-11, 2016.Boise Art in the Park.Held in a beautiful park. Great organization and a good cause for the BAM. High commission makes a sizable dent on sales however.

Sep 9-11, 2016.Bar Harbor Fine Arts Festival II.Held in a beautiful park overlooking an incredible harbor. The very touristy crowd was not very interested in visiting and buying from the exhibitors however.

Sep 17-18, 2016.Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival.Nestled in the woods the atmosphere is as though one is camping in the forest. Don't forget to bring the shims and watering can! The library book sale is always a hit for us.

Oct 15-16, 2016.Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival.Best pumpkin pies, hands down. We have done this show also for years and will continue to do so. More and more large beer crowd in recent years however.

Dec 17-18, 2016.KPFA.Great way to end the season with some incredible folks. Worth doing it just for supporting the station alone.
