Dear Antique dealer, Collector, and Artisan:
An incredible opportunity has come to the Hilltop Production Events office and those vendors who
work with this promotion company. It is an event that will bring together artists, handcrafted
jewelers, handcrafted furniture builders, antique dealers, and those who are lovers of all things
Carillon Beach, Florida, located in the heart of Florida's Emerald Coast, will be hosting The
Carillon Antique and Artists' Market on June 5-7, 2015. It will be the premier event on the Emerald
Coast that will not only bring together all aspects of the arts, but will have guest artists giving
demonstrations, nationally certified appraisers, as well as guests who have made their name in the
world of antiques, collectables and art.
The Carillon Antique and Artists' Market sits just off Hwy 98, just over the Lake Powell bridge in
Bay County, Florida. This venue offers spacious views of the Gulf of Mexico, dotted with beautiful
pastel-colored homes, and a downtown setting that reminds visitors of Duval Street in Key West, FL
or one of the many store-lined streets in the New Orleans Vieux Carre (the French Quarter). The
setting can't be beat.
Carillon Beach is sitting among some of the largest developments in the county, and has become the
central point for not only its architectural aspects, but for all the amenities they offer their
guests, homeowners, merchants and shoppers.
The Carillon Antique and Artists' Market will be a one-of-a-kind art and antique show, which offers
not only the beautiful beaches of Bay County, but will also bring in a crowd with expendable cash
who expect a certain lifestyle, living, or vacationing when they come. The Florida Emerald Coast is
known as the art mecca of the South, and with the thousands of artisans, crafters, collectors, and
antique dealers, it is no surprise events such as this, do so well.
Hilltop Production Events has produced, managed, and developed more than 800 concerts, festivals,
block parties, movie festivals, trade shows, and other events. It will be the responsibility of HPE
to unite all entities of this event, and bring a signature event to Carillon Beach and the Florida
Over the next month, applications will be sent out to various dealers, artisans, crafters,
collectors, and antique dealers who have shown an immediate interest in this event. By the first
applications will be posted on the www.hilltopproductionsinc.com website.

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!!!
