I have done Lincolnshire, Northbrook and Glencoe and did well at all 3 despite the heat. Loved my booth spaces and the relative ease of all aspects of the shows. Very easy and helpful staff. Thanks.

First off, I just want to thank you, Amy and the entire production team for another professional and well run event this weekend in Whitefish Bay... It's always a pleasure taking part in an Amdur production, knowing that from months before the artists arrive until the last tent is packed away that everything has been thoughtfully planned and taken care of, leaving the artists to focus on their patrons and artwork without having to worry about anything else.
