Paragon Festivals

Sarasota, FL 34232


Achieving success as an artist has historically been challenging during the best of times. Perhaps never more challenging than in our current economy. Being artists ourselves with experience in promoting events, we understand much about the art show world works and what needs to be done to stage successful events for our target audience: art patrons and artists. We use this experience to guide us in moving forward as we continue to learn and grow.

What we believe Paragon offers to artists and why we encourage you to consider incorporating our events into your show season are the following:

- Boutique: smaller shows of 80 to 150 artisans, less competition

- High quality artwork: only original, creative and handmade artwork – no buy-sell or reps

- Strong demographics: we have the best "dirt" in the industry, locating our events in areas with high-end demographics and both the means and desire to acquire artwork

- Strong media partnerships: we develop relationships with the top media sources in each venue and develop comprehensive and aggressive marketing strategies to promote our events
