Lubee Bat Conservancy is looking for new vendors to take part in the
18th Annual FL Bat Festival.
Are you a local small business?
Are you an Artist, Baker or Candlestick Maker?
Have you started a new hobby and want to share it with the community?
Do you have a conservation message that you'd like to share?
Then apply to be a FL Bat Fest vendor!
The 18th Annual FL Bat Festival will be held Saturday, October 22nd, 2022 from 10am - 5pm.
We hope that you’ll take part in our celebration as Lubee continues to spread conservation awareness while enjoying all the batty fun festivities! The FL Bat Festival is a highly anticipated family friendly, fall festival. Every year, the festival becomes a little bigger, as we continuously bring in more local artisans, businesses, conservation groups, FL breweries, & delicious food vendors. There’s something for everyone, from crafts, kid’s bouncy huts, activities, and nature play areas, to live music, silent auction/raffles, and of course the stars of the event, are our beautiful Bats!
The 2021 Florida Bat Festival was attended by 4,500 visitors! During the festival, attendees had a chance to visit with over 60 vendors, including but not limited to, informational, artisans, crafts, breweries and food merchants. All vendors had another amazing year of selling out of their wares and reaching new customers.
Vendor applications are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Be sure to include your payment when submitting your application. Payments will only be processed once you have been accepted. To follow in the theme of the event (BATS), many vendors may be displaying similar items. While we attempt to have no repeating vendor types, be aware that some businesses may overlap and we cannot guarantee a lack of competition.
DEADLINE for application without late fees is Sep 30.
Submissions will be accepted until Oct 8 but late fees will apply.
Approved vendors will receive an email from the Bat Fest Coordinator shortly after submission. If denied, applicant will be informed and application shredded. An application submittal does not guarantee acceptance into Bat Fest. Approval or denial will be based on event needs, space availability and/or number of duplicated products.
If you are not able to participate in this year’s Florida Bat Festival, please consider donating a Gift Basket/Gift Card for our Raffle Table/Silent Auction or becoming a Sponsor. These options are a great way to show the community that you are supporting local conservation endeavors and helping Lubee in turn. Contact us here if you'd like to arrange a pick up!
