Port Clinton Art Festival is a winner in the 3rd annual “America’s Best Art Fair Awards” competition. Named as one of “America’s Best Art Fairs”, the survey recognized Port Clinton Art Festival as one of the finest juried art fairs in the country.
Sponsored by ArtFairCalendar.com, the #1 website for art fair event listings, the 2015 online survey opened voting beyond the traditional “art fair insiders” such as artists and show staff to focus on voting by art fair patrons, fine art collectors and the public that attends art shows and festivals nationwide.
“Port Clinton Art Festival has always been popular among art fair lovers in the Highland Park area, but our 3rd annual national Best Art Fairs Awards survey proves that both art collectors and artists nationwide love it, too,” said Connie Mettler, Publisher of ArtFairCalendar.com. “We’re happy to give a “Best Art Fair Award to Port Clinton Art Festival today.”
