Strengthen and Enrich

“PNC has a long history of supporting organizations that strengthen and enrich the lives of our neighbors,” said Cedric Hatcher, PNC Gulf Coast regional president. “We understand the valuable return that unique cultural events including the Fairhope Arts and Crafts have on our local Gulf Coast economy. Today more than ever, the businesses we attract, the jobs we create and the visitors who extend their stay are drawn to this area by the beauty of Coastal Alabama and the outdoor cultural activities we have to offer.”

Most Enjoyable Show

"I must say, this was the most enjoyable show that I've done in some time. The atmosphere, hospitality and overall energy of all involved in the festival, local businesses and festival attendees was just wonderful. The Artist Awards Dinner was very nice. You all did a wonderful job! Thank you very much!"

Southern Hospitality

"Everyone did a great job! Check-in, set-up and even the wrap-up during the extreme weather conditions went off without a hitch. It was my first year at this show and to my delight, the shoppers in my booth knew that I had not been there before-amazing-considering the amount of artists at the show. Two Patrons Ribbons and First Place for Jewelry put a smile on my face that is still there. A fairly new resident to Fairhope made several purchases on Friday and was so disappointed that she already gave her Patrons Ribbon away that she actually took the time to go to the Chamber Office and get another one for me. I already have three request orders from new customers. Again, I want to thank you. It was a great show and your display of "Southern Hospitality" was the icing on an already delicious cake."

Much To Be Proud Of

"Thank you again for inviting us to participate in the Art Festival this year! You can't know what a "shot in the arm" it was for us. The Festival and all associates with it, from management to volunteers, have mush to proud of. You do your fair city a great service. South Hospitality at its finest! What a class act from start to finish."
