Businesses are free to join if they showcase local artists/creatives. The charges will be $25.00 ($40.00 late fee) for each creative participant sponsored by the business/group. Artist is still required to do the same process to join but will be adding the businesses name and address for the one-day event in their sign up form. Those who are being sponsored have to be available for meeting the public, could arrange a table and chairs for the event's duration, handing out biz cards, answer questions, say hello and make sales.

If you are a Gift Shop owner and have a variety of items you sell will still need to feature one local artist/creative for the day displaying & making their work the main focus among the rest of your gifts. Have the artist/creative person featured to do the same sign-up and follow through with the Submission Requirements mentioning your address as to where they will be showcasing.

The business addresses will also be mentioned as sponsors of artists/creatives and linked to the GOOGLE MAPS for Follow the Yellow Balloons Creative Event Tours. You will also be displaying the yellow balloons with signs for the public to know you are a part of the event.

If you are a business looking for artist/creative to sponsor or wanting to create a group looking for other creatives to join, Minaz can add the call-out through the e-newsletter to help network those who are looking for a space to showcase their work.
