If you want the latest scoop on upcoming events, your best bet is to check out SF's Bazaar Bizarre's Blog page. This is where I find most of my event info.
I am also trying to post events that have reasonable vendor fees. Any events with higher fees( in the range of $250-$400) I will most likely not post about, unless they are common craft events like Bazaar Bizarre or Renegade.

Additional Info: This show is being put on by Brisbane Dance Workshop (BDW) as a fundraiser. The show in Brisbane is new this year, so doesn't have a track record. BDW does, however, as all of their events are very well supported in the community, so I know it will do well. We will also be doing a lot of advertising to pull in folks from outside the community. This is BDW's website: http://www.brisbanedance.com/.
