Booth fees are very reasonable and include electricity, reported art and fine craft sales are consistently strong, and the event has a friendly, easy going atmosphere. All booths will be located INSIDE and will be 10×10 or 10×15! To attract even more buyers, the show will feature art and craft demonstrations, live music, and creative cuisine from food trucks.
Las Artistas is working with a professional marketing agency with arts and crafts event expertise to promote the show and is updating its website to provide exhibitors with additional exposure. El Paso is known as a community that supports, promotes and funds the arts. In fact, our extensive advertising budget is funded in part by the Texas State Commission on the Arts and the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
This year, we are having a new section that we are calling Next Generation. This section of artists will be composed by local children under the age of 18. They will have a table displaying their pieces. This is part of an effort to build the art community in the area.
