Call to Artists: Balloon Fiesta Artist Market

Balloon Fiesta is getting close so I wanted to get word out that we are taking booth reservations for our October Balloon Fiesta Artist market. We have already received several reservations and are limiting the booths to 16 total. So, if you would like to participate, please reserve your space soon! This is going to be a great show! We have the Balloon Fiesta poster artist featured in the gallery during the month of October, plus on October 2 & 3rd we will hold our 2nd Open Studios event. The first day of the show is also our First Friday art opening, so there will be lots of people here that day. What this means for you is lots of people and lots of publicity for the show!

We will have 9 booths outside on the patio and 7 booths inside in the gallery. The first 7 who reserve their spaces will get first choice on being inside. (As of this posting, we have 1 inside space left) The price will be the same for all booths. The market will run Friday, Oct. 2 from noon – 9/10pm, Sat. Oct. 3 from noon – 6pm, Sun.
