This is a complete step-by-step for anyone interesting being a vendor, selling products and making money at street fairs, festivals, craft shows or any event.

Selling at an event is an amazing experience. The reason is simple, thousands of people, who are eager to spend money, attend festivals. fairs and craft shows looking for unique products.

We’ve attended events like the 3-day Allen Park Street Fair in Allen Park, Michigan with over 250,000 attendees and the very next day we are at a local hospital selling our products to doctors and nurses.

In addition, I was also a featured breakout speaker teaching the information in this course at the Michigan Festival and Events Association annual meeting. This is a 2-day event to learn best practices on making money at street fairs and festivals.
