Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival Again Named Top Show in Country.
LANCASTER, PA -- Once again the Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival has been selected one of America’s leading fine art and craft shows. Art Fair SourceBook, the leading national rating organization, just announced that Long’s Park was ranked the No. 3 fine art show in the country and the No. 6 fine craft show.
The rankings are compiled by the Oregon-based Art Fair SourceBook, compiled from 2009 audit reports they received from art and craft show exhibitors who participated in more than 600 shows across the country. Rankings were based on net average revenue generated by these exhibitors.
“The ultimate test of our show is how much our guests like the exhibitors we’ve invited to Long’s Park,” explained 2009 Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival director Amy L. Marberger. “All four days of Labor Day weekend show our guests were voting with their wallets as they shopped Long’s Park. To have them support our exhibitors in such a big way means that our independent jurors knew their stuff and our dedicated volunteers
supported their work.”
The Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival will be held rain or shine Labor Day weekend, Friday, September 3 through Monday, September 6, 2010.
An estimated 1,000 artists from across the country are expected to vie to be a part of the 32nd annual show. From these applications independent jurors will help select 200 of the best of the best to exhibit.
Martin Insurance Company executive Amy Marberger has directed the Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival since 2006.
Approximately 20,000 guests from across the Mid-Atlantic region are expected to attend the 2010 Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival. The event has become a Labor Day weekend tradition since its founding in 1979 to help underwrite the free, 13-week Long’s Park Summer Music Series. The Long’s Park Art & Craft Festival is produced and sponsored annually by the Long’s Park Amphitheater Foundation.
Long’s Park, a beautiful 80-acre, city-owned park at the Harrisburg Pike/Park City Center exit of Route 30, is located at 1441 Harrisburg Pike in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
