FestivalNet Featured Event Vail's Art on the Rockies is this weekend! Art on the Rockies is loved by the community as the sweet balance of a casual yet upscale art event. Fittingly for a mountain gathering, Art on the Rockies boasts a lively outdoor environment in the Vail Valley. Meet nationally renowned artists and appreciate the variety of arts and fine crafts on the grounds of Colorado Mountain College in Edwards. The event starts Friday, July 10th at 10am, and features free admission, food and beverages, free children’s art area and a silent art auction benefiting the Vail Valley Arts League. source: Art on the Rockies WebsiteHere are the measures they are taking to ensure everyone's safety according to Vail Daily News. Social distancing measures were designed into the event’s new outside format. Each artist’s booth is 10 feet apart from the next, and they will have ample room to exit the booth from one side when needed. Aisles between booths are more than 30 feet wide, and markers will be out to direct two-way directional pedestrian traffic. Guests and artists are required to wear face masks when a 6 foot distance cannot be maintained, and each booth will have sanitization products, both for guest use and to disinfect any object that may be handled by visitors.

These past few months have brought an unprecedented challenge to maintain the constantly changing event information on FestivalNet. Promoters are in a very difficult position to make decisions far enough in advance to coordinate vendors and venues while trying to make a profit without endangering the public. Decisions can and often do, change overnight. We are having to go back and double check the current 2020 events, which has put us behind on updating last year's event listings on our site. We are hopeful that we will be able to get more events updated as states are opening up and we are finding future 2020 and 2021 dates on the events websites. We have always taken pride in keeping our listings as up-to-date and correct as possible so that we can help you all plan your schedule for the year. We are confident that we provide the most consolidated up to date event information on the web. Despite the obvious financial impact we have undergone, we have increased our staff in an attempt to continue to bring our members the most current event information possible. We apologize if some event listings have not been up to the standards that you have come to expect. Please know that we will continue to work diligently to update listings and remove the ones that we know are not taking place. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
In 2020, it's not 'art fair as usual' for the Sawdust Summer Art Festival in Laguna Beach who has responded to our current social landscape by downsizing this year. State and county health guidelines have helped morph the Sawdust Art Festival into an ongoing weekend Outdoor Marketplace instead of its traditional summer festival. "Our first priority is the health and wellbeing of our artists, staff, and patrons. Knowing that even a modified version of our annual festival would not meet reopening criteria, our board of directors quickly pivoted in a different direction", stated Monica Prado, President of the Sawdust Board of the Directors.Under an outdoor eucalyptus grove, artists will uniquely configure their space to allow for social distancing; more than 100 Sawdust artists will rotate through over the course of the summer. Sawdust has taken all the necessary steps to keep everyone safe."Art is essential. Artists are Innovators. Over the past months we have focused our passion and creativity on findi

Having used FestivalNet for 10+ years, it saves me the stress of looking for venues, gives information enabling me to make "intelligent" decisions on which festivals to attend, helps me keep track of where I'm going and where I want to go, the reviews are a huge help & I have event contacts at my finger tips. I have NEVER had any problems getting a response back from this company & I would NEVER think of changing. FestivalNet has proven to me they are one of the very few reputable companies left out there.
