NO WHITE TENT Affordable Art/Craft Shows

Artists, crafters, hobbyists UNITE against White Tent Art Shows

Pay a Set Fee! Pay a Percentage of your Sales! or You Pay Nothing and Make a Donation From Your Heart After The Show!

As a Chairman of the the Port Charlotte Family Fall Music Festival I struggle every year with this dilemma.   Our show is not a fundraiser.  It is a Free community outreach event sponsored by area businesses and hosted by Edgewater United Methodist Church.   We only need to raise enough money to put the show on.   I am toying with the idea of changing the way vendors pay for future shows.  Pay a Set Fee!  Pay a Percentage of you Sales! or Pay nothing and you decide if you want to make a donation from your heart after the show.   This year I charged $150 for this 2 day event.  We will have 8,000 to 10,000 attend over the 2 days.  

Let me know what you think about this and how much you would donate if given this option?

Are most vendors willing to increase their donation if they have a great weekend?

Do you know vendors that would just take advantage of a great opportunity like this?  (no names Please) And pay nothing!

Give me your thoughts.  I will make a decision at the end of this years show and let this years vendors have first shot at getting back in next year.

I basically want to know what all of you think about how we run our show.   We want to improve every year and your opinion does matter.
