Gearing up for an Art Festival by the Sea

Art Festival by the Sea Manchester MA 2013 Etsy Beadwork Craft Fair Beading Beads

I have been invited to do an art festival in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA!! This will be my first festival and I will admit that I am a little nervous about it. There is so much to plan for, and I don’t really have much time or space to do it.. This week, I am revamping my booth design just a bit as well as figuring out the best way to windproof my displays all while doing it on a limited budget. It looks like the weather may cooperate, but in New England, anything could happen. If you have any tips or suggestions for a newbie, please leave them in the comments below..

Anyways, it sounds like it will be a fun event. There will be many artists and crafters showcasing their works, as well as locally grown products, concerts in the park, and a beer garden! If you happen to be north of Boston on Saturday, August 3, please stop by and say hello! (Click the pic above for more info:) I will do my best to post updates on Facebook and Twitter. Hope to see you there!

  1. Yay, how exciting! I would say, definitely bring some strong packing tape with you (the clear kind). This really saved my behind when I did my first windy outdoor festival here in Erie. My tablecloths were blowing around, so I had to tape them down! And all my little signs kept blowing over, so I had to tape them to the table! I don’t know what I would have done without the packing tape!
