you should never pay for a show list
This is all very good advice with the exception of not paying for info. Yes, most sites and printed guides are useless, but the two sites listed above, festivalnet.com and craftmaster.com are well worth the 40 or 50 bucks they cost for the volume of info they provide. Remember, time is money. The method described above, draw a radius of where you are willing to travel… is a great suggestion, but you can do this in a matter of minutes at festivalnet (not sure about craftmaster). You pick your radius enter your zip and boom there’s your list. Yes, you need lots of contacts within that radius because you will need to contact many many more events than you will actually book, like contact10-20 for every one you actually book. It is way smarter to use the technology available to speed along your process in developing a list of events to contact. You can always go back to add to your list using the manual method if you still need more shows. Good luck and happy vending. BTW, I did festival food for 20 years.
