Come join us at the 47th annual Waterfront Art Festival! .
***We will be a virtual show for 2020***
We’re an outdoor, juried Festival in Webster, NY featuring fine arts, and crafts. The Festival is held in North Ponds Park, located along Route 104.
The Festival is laid out in a circle around a large pond and offers a nice mix of shady and sunny spaces on grass and spacious vendor areas. Artists are able to drive up to their space to unload their equipment and product before moving their vehicle to the free artist parking just outside the Festival grounds and of course to reverse that when they are packed up and ready to leave.
The Jurors and our team work hard to assemble a mix of high quality, original art and craft offerings in all price ranges. We encourage artists to demonstrate their skills to both entertain the visitors and to build a better bond that can lead to improved sales.
We usually have between 100 and 140 artists and we plan for about 10,000 paid visitors for the weekend. One thing we hear often is that artists tend to sell at least as well at this smaller Festival as at the larger ones. Maybe the small admission charge encourages buyers to attend vs. the more common “just looking” visitors. I have talked to many artists who say they are better able to interact with fewer, more serious visitors and that can lead to better sales so that may be the reason this Festival works well for artists.
You are always welcome to review the artist’s images to see how your work would fit in and I encourage you to contact any of the artists you know directly to get the scoop from their perspective.
