Appeal of other sites

One of the goals of my ‘Arts Festival’ site is to archive best practices for arts festival organizers and to provide an easy way to search and use the archived content.  The site should make it quick to find content, be visually appealing and stand the test of time and multiple contributors.

In my research I have not been able to find an Arts Festival site that is comparable to what I am planning. What I have found are sites with pieces of content that have appeal.

Festival planning sites that I have located lack visual appeal but do offer some content navigation ideas such as:

Festivals and Events with an attractive ‘manual’ for promoting and implementing a nature festival.

Festival and Event Planning with easy to access features such as tips, forums and calendars for festivals.

Other sites with visual features that I like and want to emulate in my Arts Festival site include:

One Good Thing  with representative visuals and easy to find and searchable information.

A couple research oriented sites MFAH and London Lives have features that demonstrate good cataloging and archives.

Voguepedia and Vogue Archives are favorites for vast content and easy access.

The Selby watercolor filled font is appealing for an Arts Festival site.
