It is that time again! We are now entering into our 7th year, and this year will be in our venue again in Sylvan Lake. The show promises to be the best ever as we now have a larger venue in the jewel of Central Alberta, the resort town of Sylvan Lake!
For the past few years, this town of over 11,000 people, has been the fastest growing town in Canada, with just under 1 million visitors a year coming here to take in the activities.
This town explodes during the summer, with an estimated 40,000 coming here on a summer weekend. There is a sizeable "summer cottage" community here, many of these being high end cottages from owners from Calgary as well as Edmonton spending their summers here.
The new venue has allowed us to increase booth sizes and at a per square foot price below the previous booth prices. We are still providing booth spaces with hangable walls for a nominal fee ( to cover setup/teardown), although they are in limited supply.
We will again be advertising in several newspapers, visitors guide, travel Alberta, sweet sixteen, as well as other travel guide websites, posters, art card giveouts, word of mouth, etc. Radio will also be accessed as well as any interviews we can arrange with print, radio and television. A webpage is also being worked on .
With the new venue, the space has allowed us to now host a guest artist. I am pleased to announce our 2010 guest artist will be the internationally known, multi award winning bronze artist, Sam Anton Terakedis. Sams amazing works depicting North American Wildlife will be an excellent addition to this years show!
I am anticipating several new artists to attend the show this year to add to our already great lineup of excellent quality original works, to make this the best show yet! Please click the link below for the application form.
