Artists, crafters, hobbyists UNITE against White Tent Art Shows
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.
