Thank you all for participating in this wonderful weekend

Not only do our artists have the chance to win cash prizes for their art, it’s also great exposure for their work, with excellent social media and news coverage by WDIY, The Irregular, Express Times and The Morning Call. It’s a great opportunity for networking – hopefully you will find many new fans of your work! Individual exhibitors’ weekend sales have been over $4,000.

We are constantly seeking to improve our festival, so if you have exhibited in past years and have some suggestions on improving the festival here is the survey.
