Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs

You must contact the individual events with the information provided on each event listing page. FestivalNet does not produce or organize any of the events listed on our website.

We do not have a printed copy of all events because it is not an efficient way to present the information. You will ultimately only be interested in a small percentage of the 26,000+ events that we list.

However, with level 2 access you can create your own "booklet" of events to take with you on the road. As you search for and find events of interest, you can add those to "My List." Then, select the "Print My List" option to print your own personalized booklet of events.
    Here is an example:
  • To quickly create a list of events in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina that are 200 miles from Tallahassee, FL.
  • Use the State drop-down list and the Zip Code Radius Search.
  • Put 200 miles in the distance (or however far you travel) and your zip in the zip code box (32308 for this example).
  • Then pick a state in the State drop-down list (choose AL for this example).
  • Click "Search to View Events" and then click "Add All Events to My List".
  • Next click your Back button twice and change the state (for this example pick SC) and search again.
  • Now, again click "Add All Events to My List" and click your Back button twice.
  • Change the state (for this example pick GA), search again and click "Add All Events to My List."
  • Then simply click "Print My List," staple those sheets together and away you go!
Be sure to NOT add other search options as you will limit your search results. If there is something specific you know you want, like juried shows only, you might add a single additional option like that.

Getting into a show last minute is always a risky proposition. If you are able to get a space in a fair or festival at the last minute, that means they still have vendor spaces available. This could very likely mean it is not a good show because otherwise, all spaces would be booked well in advance (in some instances it could mean the event had a last minute cancellation, but that is not very common.)

We provide excellent data on 26,000+ events, but we have no control over the quality of each show, it is up to you to evaluate each event and determine if you think it will work for you (i.e. be a profitable show), before you commit your time and money.

An Electronic Press Kit, or "EPK" is a collection of materials used to promote your business, whether you are an artist, musician, craftperson, band, food vendor, other exhibitor or company. Your FestivalNet profile serves as your EPK. Complete your profile by adding bio, photos, music, videos, calendar and blog. The more complete your EPK, the more a promoter can conveniently learn all about you from one easy link.

In the Pro search full show details page, next to the promoter's email address you will notice this link, "Get Booked." Click there and select your choice under "Contact this event about applying" to generate an email from you to the event promoter with a link to your FN profile/EPK.

Use this link to quickly contact festivals you are interested in applying for. Before you use this tool, be sure your FestivalNet profile is complete. From the My Account area, you can modify your profile page (includes your bio), add photos, songs, videos, blog, and calendar.

This functionality needs to work with your default email program on your computer/browser, which you need to have set up first. You will have the chance to add more text to the email containing your EPK before sending the email.

This is either the date all bookings will be done or the deadline to receive applications (if they use an application process). In either case, contact the event well in advance (4-6 months) of the posted deadline. If a festival is all booked up before their posted deadline, that is the nature of the business.

If a promoter has not entered deadlines into their event details, we will display "until full" as the default. Get in touch with the event directly to see if they've filled up.
