The Patron’s Choice Awards, totaling $200,000 in 2021, demonstrates community support for the Festival, thereby enhancing its reputation and increasing its prestige. Patron’s Choice Awards are given by individuals or businesses who commit to spending a minimum of $200 on artwork at the Festival and who make a $200 tax-deductible donation; this commitment demonstrates community support for the artists and the Festival. The Patrons select work for purchase, then give the artist(s) a prestigious “Patron’s Choice Award” ribbon to be placed in his/her booth.
