SORT BY Relevancy
ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 2nd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. This is the only national online survey of the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.
We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 20 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing.
Not surprisingly: people love to attend art fairs and many travel long distances to do so. The overall conclusion is: Art is Alive and Well in America and attendance at the nation's shows is proof of that.
Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them and collect art. Find out which they have chosen as the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.
We'll share the survey answers on:
what makes a show "Best"
why people say they attend an art fair
how art fair goers find out about shows to attend
why they don't attend shows they used to love
how far they travel to art fairs
their suggestions for show organizers

Do you consider yourself a nice person? Why? What makes up a nice person? Webster's dictionary has several definitions for this word but the most prominent one is 'pleasant', 'amiable', and 'delightful'. Most people would like to consider themselves to be nice people. After all, nice people try to get along with everyone, not rock the boat on certain issues, promote harmony among their sphere of influence, etc.
However, there is a downside to being nice when all we focus on is the need to have everyone like us. Perhaps we seek too much validation from people instead of approval from God.
Join me for this episode of the Parker J Cole Show as I talk about the problem with being nice and take your questions and comments. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV Radio mobile app today. Any way you can, tune in.
