Three online resources for finding weekend fairs around the country are ArtFairCalander.com, FairsandFesitvals.net and WeekendEvents.com. The comprehensive sites have links to official websites, resources for those who wish to exhibit and calendars that list the dates and locations of fairs, categorized by state.
ArtFairCalander.com details juried fairs including sections for fair feedback, calls for artists and articles and rankings for best fairs and locations. The site links to a sister forum where artists can discuss the intricacies of working at specific fairs.
FairsandFestivals.net has a forum, resources for promoters and artists including a free database to list events, articles covering the ins and outs of fair trends and a membership section. The paid membership gives users the ability to add events, create a webpage with media, access to eBooks and a free newsletter. Searching the site lets vendors filter results by keyword, deadline, location, vendor type and additional details including if it’s a juried competition, if there is prize money and if it is inside or outside.
