Here at FestivalNet, we've been serving the festival community for over 25 years. We began serving the North American festival industry in 1996, and since then have built the largest database of fine arts fairs, arts and craft shows, music festivals, expos, corporate events, and more. We're proud to bring together all types of people from within the festival community, and our site is an excellent tool whether you're:
- An attendee looking for an event to visit.
- A vendor, artist, performer, or other event participant looking for an event to join.
- An event promoter looking to plan and market an event.
No matter which one of those you are (and we have members who are all three!), FestivalNet is the perfect place to find all of the information you need and more.
FestivalNet for Event Attendees
When it comes to finding a festival in the United States or Canada, FestivalNet is the place to start. We provide our users with current information on more than 26,000 events, and our extensive and detailed list of events is updated daily, so you never have to wonder if what you're reading is accurate.
Our events include:
- Craft shows
- Music festivals
- Art shows
- Street festivals
- Home & Garden events
- Food festivals
- Farmers' Markets
- Health & Lifestyle events
- Indie festivals
- Seasonal & Holiday events
- Virtual events
- And more!
As you can see, no matter what type of event you're looking for, we'll be able to deliver current, accurate information so you can plan to attend.
Discover Events You'll Love
Many of our users come to FestivalNet with a sense of adventure. They use our platform as the perfect tool to explore festival and event options they wouldn't have thought of or didn't even know existed. By using our event search tool, you can come to our site and choose your city, state, zip code, distance, and month. From there, you'll get a robust list of upcoming events.
Planning for Trips and Vacations
Many of our members use our festival finder as a way to help them plan vacations. They simply plug in the location they'll be visiting and the days they'll be traveling, and presto! They find themselves looking at a detailed list of special events happening locally during their trip that would be challenging to find elsewhere.
This is also a great tool to use if the kids will be out of school on a summer or spring break, or if you have family coming into town and want to do something special. Search for local events that will surprise and delight you, and make some incredible memories.
Use Old Info for Current Planning
Are you waiting for your favorite festival to post information about their upcoming event, but the event planners haven't released anything yet? Or are you thinking of checking out a festival you've heard good things about, but can't find any info on this year's event?
No worries, we've even got you covered. We leave old events up on our website for up to a year so you can review the information to learn more (in our experience, last year's details are better than no details). Using the information available can make it easier to make decisions when you're trying to fill a certain weekend, but don't have any other details. These events are easily omitted from searches if you only want to see upcoming events and we never post more than one listing for each event.
FestivalNet for Vendors, Creators, Performers, and More
Are you a professional artist, maker, or performer who is looking to get in front of more people than ever? Are you attempting to increase your marketing efforts on a unique product or company while you balance your small business budget and staff? Have you struggled to stand out at trade shows and large-scale events? If so, FestivalNet is an invaluable tool to connect you with the perfect events to reach a larger and more targeted audience. It's great for:
- Professional artists
- Production/Service Providers
- Non-profit Organizations
- And more!
FestivalNet is the perfect way to research new festival opportunities – it is the most comprehensive searchable database of North American events online. Time and time again, FestivalNet is the preferred online tool for artists, musicians, craftspeople, and vendors to find events, and you can use it too.
By using our simple event search tool, you can find new and exciting festivals in whatever area you choose, and can connect with the events management to join. Find events specific to your niche that you didn't even know existed, and meet more people who genuinely love what you're doing.
Call for Artists
Are you an artist or craftsman? If so, you should check out the Call for Artists portion of our website. There you'll find a listing of open calls for various artists and makers to enter a festival to display and sell their work. Find the location, contact details, event theme, and the information needed to apply. Your next art placement could be waiting for you on FestivalNet!
We also offer an opportunity for our members to sell their products in our FestivalNet Marketplace without having to enter an event in person. When you become a member, you can also become a Seller at no additional cost. Get your products in front of over a million visitors to our site each month.

No matter who you are, if you're trying to reach more people, FestivalNet is the perfect method. Tap into our "One-Click-Connect" system to contact us and apply for various events. Now is the time to expose your talents, products, or services to over 1,300,000+ visitors a month.
Event Management With FestivalNet
When it comes to event planning and event management, there's no better resource than FestivalNet. If you're a festival promoter, we're excited to show you how you can take your event organization to the next level.
As we've mentioned, our site gets 1.3 million visitors per month so having your event listed is an excellent way to gain exposure. Any event manager would probably be asking how much a listing would cost. We have some good news for you.
Your event listing that will give you exposure to 1,300,000+ people each month is free.
If you'd like even more exposure than that, we do have some incredible options for you.
If you choose to take part in our featured events option, we'll showcase your event at the top of general search results, as well as on our Featured Events Page and the Featured Events Map on our homepage.
This is an excellent option because we have a high search engine ranking, which means that our website shows up often when people are actively searching for festivals and events. Being a featured event will allow you to connect with people at the perfect time – when they're looking for festivals just like yours. Our homepage gets an incredible amount of traffic, and it is a great way to get your event the exposure it deserves.
Call for Artists
When it comes to event planning, FestivalNet is the best way to reach your exact target market of vendors and service providers. Our site will connect you with over 70,000 artists and crafters who are on our Call for Artists email list, and they're waiting to hear from event managers like you.
We'll put you directly into the inbox of the exact people you'd like to be a part of your festival in our Call for Artists email update that goes out each week.
In addition to the emails, we'll also include your event in the Call for Artists portion of our website. We extensively link to the Call for Artists throughout FestivalNet.com and in other newsletters for maximum exposure to artists, artisans, and vendors.
Don't Just Take Our Word For It
As you can see, FestivalNet is a must-have tool when it comes to festival event management. But don't just take it from us, hear from some real event organizers who use FestivalNet as a critical part of putting on a successful event:
When I first started looking for ways to advertise the Hickman County Arts and Crafts Guild's arts and crafts fairs, I would put our events on 7–8 online sites. I would put their icon to link back to them on the event's page thinking I was doing a great thing as a new event chair. It quickly became apparent that I was wasting my time. On the surveys that we gave the vendors, Festivalnet.com was the only online site mentioned!! Seven years ago, I dropped all of the other sites and have never regretted it. Festivalnet.com is the only way to go!!
I have been getting lots of contacts about our festival & they say they found out from your site. Thanks!
Thanks FN, keep up the good work. FestivalNet brought the most hits to my site, more than any other craft site!
The Chincoteague Blueberry Festival was a huge success and I credit your service for helping us locate quality exhibitors from 10 states. Locals and tourists alike agreed that they had never seen such a fine array of quality crafts in any show here on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
