This was the first year I have experienced the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival as a merchant.
We had a fabulous view of the visible workings of the event all weekend as well as before and after. The level of organization and devotion by the festival organizing committee and the volunteers was impressive. They contacted us the weeks prior to the festivalw to let us know what to expect.
The rules and the parking were well communicated and labeled. The volunteers were out before 6 a.m. on Saturday, after having worked long hours into the evening before.
The vendors commented that they had never been to a more well-organized festival/art show. Their marketing committee must have done a bang-up job because it looked like rivers of people coming down the street.
Our new shop had a busy weekend with many positive interactions and another business or two that I chatted with had the same. Well done, CFA, and thank you.
