                                       West Indies Markets
Hello West Indies Market vendors:

 For many of you, the WIM have been a staple in your yearly line-up of events, to attend and invite your customers too. It has been an event that has graced Cty. Hwy. 30A, and has been one of the longest-running art events in the state of Florida, and definitely on the Florida Panhandle.
 
Since 1997, the WIM has been one of the biggest crowd-drawers, and has put Rosemary Beach on the map and made it an artists'  mecca. With more than 400,000 attending the event over the past 15 years, and more than 1,700 artists exhibiting and selling in that period of time, the markets have helped launch careers in the world of creativity, and made several artists' past time, their full-time job.
 
Unfortunately, the markets will NO LONGER be an event that is held at Rosemary Beach. It was officially cancelled the first of September, but we are just releasing the decision by the Rosemary Beach board, because we have been searching for other locations to hold the markets, but have fallen short of finding such a venue. We are continuing to search for a new location.
 
The reasons for the boards decision, and consulting with the office of Hilltop Production Events, is that we have simply run out of room, and with the popularity of Rosemary Beach, and the lack of adequate parking, there is  really no other choice, than to pull it from their yearly calendar.
 
We are currently working on two other festivals/markets at other locations, that will be announced, hopefully at the end of October. The 2014 Harvest and Holiday Market will take place as scheduled.
 
Please keep checking with us, concerning these new endeavors, and once again, thanks so much for making the West Indies Market, the most successful art market on the Emerald Coast - IT WILL BE MISSED!!!
