What do they mean by 'due to vendors not being available'? Didn't they jury the show and sign people up in advance? They should know exactly how many vendors they have weeks in advance. And how are they going to get out the advertising for the new date in such a short time? This is messed up. I'd call them and get a real answer. Make them talk to you so they're really uncomfortable. Letters and email are too easy.
Pretty sure they just canceled the art side of the event because almost no one was available the next weekend. They are still doing the rest of the Xmas event sans the art booths.
bciskepottery is sure seems that one of the emails would have spelled out the reason and said they were sorry if in fact it was a reasonable reason. Why withhold the information. This is the same director that a week before decided arbitrarily to move all the artist under a big tent and insisted I had to drive 2 hours to pick up a paper parking pass that could have been emailed. Was there a reason? I assume so but she decided not to even mention it. The email simply said:
We are thinking of moving xxxx Fair to next weekend, will you be available to still participate at the xxxxx xxxx Fair?
sounded pretty arbitrary to me.
