What the Artists say
“We do about 14 art shows a year, and I can tell you that this was the best one we have done in 2017. We loved the layout, and the park is beautiful.”

“It was a great venue. Fabulous location and fabulous people. Very professional.”
“Booth layout — awesome. The number of food trucks was perfect! No lines. In the end it was near perfect for us!”
“As an emerging artist I would also like to add that I had a good show selling and also talking to the other artists. I am ready and hoping to get in the show next year. Thanks again Big4!”
“We LOVE the location and it’s perfect for easy parking, load-in and load-out.”
