We are well into the planning stages of the 2019 festival. You may have noticed that we have changed the dates, and we apologize for any inconvenience. Please note that the new date was chosen to align behind the Orange Beach Arts Festival on March 9-10, and the Fairhope Arts Festival on March 15-17. Other reasons for the date change was to avoid competition with other large local events, as well as poor weather which has become a regular attendee during the first half of the month of March in recent years. The new dates will also allow us more flexible set up times!
I would also like to let artists know that we are planning to have a large section of live art demonstrations, performance arts and local musicians for entertainment this year. I am well aware of any concern about loud music, and assure you that I am working to keep it a respectable working atmosphere for all festival vendors.
These improvements and many more, have been made at the request and feedback of participating artists in recent years. I am working hard to make this a unique, pleasant and successful festival for everyone involved. Thank you for your time, hard work and consideration.
