Los Angeles on Apr 4-5, 2009. Hours of the event are: Sat 10:30AM-6:30PM
website: http://www.cherryblossomfestivalsocal.org/index.htm vendor application
Celebrate the advent of spring the way the Japanese do, by honoring the delicate, short-blooming sakurai at the Cherry Blossom Festival. One of the ways to celebrate the coming of spring is to attend the Cherry Blossom Festival of Southern California. It was a great way to spend quality time with family and friends while taking in a variety of entertainment, vendors and food.
The yearly festival takes place in Little Tokyo on San Pedro between 1st and 3rd streets. The location allows one to explore more of Downtown Los Angeles, including Little Tokyo and Chinatown.
During the two-day event, tons of performances took place- from demonstrations of the martial art form Aikido, taiko (Japanese drum playing), to Hawaiian/Polynesian dances. For adults, demonstrations for making origami balls with strips of long paper are available

Vendor spaces are $400.
Bite of Seattle Serves up the Food and Fun! The 27th annual Comcast Bite of Seattle presented by Emerald Queen Casino surpassed records and stretched waistbands with a successful sensory overload of sights, sounds and smells this past weekend at Seattle Center. The event attracted 500,000 visitors and provided the chance to relax and savor the summer sun at the Northwest’s premier food festival. Read the full story here.
Sounds like a nice event to try many different foods. We thought about doing this festival several years ago. If you have ever been a vendor at this event, let me know how it went. We sell necklaces, wrap-skirts and a lot more. (www.DandLCREATIONS.com) They get several hundred thousand people for this, but I really didn't feel as though we would get very much business at a festival where people came mainly to eat, etc. We make our yearly trip to Oregon during this time to do the Coos County Fair and other Fairs and we were considering extending our journey into WA.

2009 Lake Havasu City Winterfest
24th Annual Winterfest held downtown along McCulloch
Blvd. Reasonable fees for booths; check vendor application-fees vary.
Bus License is require along with insurance.
We did this event for a number of years but didn't make much of a net profit because we drove out from the Bay Area and stayed in a motel 6. (This particular Motel 6 was located about 2 blocks from our space)
This really draws a large, slow-walking crowd but they looked like zombies strolling down the street, looking neither to the left or to the right. Most of them could care less...just enjoying the nice weather this area usually has to offer during the month of February. Some snow birds; mostly locals.... virtually all of which did not spend and we didn't see a lot of them carrying bags.
We have two micro climates existing on the street. If you are faced toward the sun, it can be a pleasant, warm day with occasional breezes and you can wear your shorts and t-shirts. While on the other side, you get very little sun and often you'll need winter clothing and the wind is much colder as it whips its way around the booths.
We will not be doing this event, since we will be at Tyson Wells at the Arts & Crafts Fair (Space PQ-2) until around Feb 15. I've enjoyed Havasu over the years and we had several good shows there, but we are getting older and we would rather set up once for 17 days instead of for a 2-day show. Lots of food there. You'll enjoy.

March, 2009 Quartz Hill Almond Blossom Festival. IMPORTANT NOTICE
Quartz Hill Almond Blossom Festival.
It's that time of year when we start getting our applications for next year's
festivals and I am pretty certain that all of us (previous participants) have
receive their applications for the Quartz Hill Almond Blossom Festival in March
My wife and I had a very rough time this past March there and we pulled out of the event because we were so disgusted by the way Lee Barron treated us. He has no class and doesn't care about the way he treats vendors. We drove over 300 miles to get there and we refused to stay.
If you want to find out why and hear more about Lee Barron and the Quartz Hill Almond Blossom Festival please read what I had to say about it. My wife was in tears from what he had to say to her. Very humiliating. I spoke to other vendors that did that event and they did terribly. Some left after Saturday because their sales were so disgusting. I am glad we left without setting up. A very very bad show. Has carnival rides and that takes a lot of the money away from the vendors. If you want to listen to my two-cents worth (which is more than I made at this $($(% event) DO NOT DO THIS SHOW. You will not be satisfied. There are other events to do, so stay the heck away. If you are a returning vendor, you pretty know much what I am saying is true. If you are a new vendor who wishes to do this show....my word of advice (and my other vendor friends) is not to even think about it. Stay away. We have been doing events for over 15 years now and never have we been treated so disgustingly.

"Pasko Expo" is an event where Filipinos, and actually people of all ethnicities, can come together to celebrate the merriest time of the yearâ€¦.Christmas!In the Philippines, Christmas is the most anticipated holiday of the year. With various town fiestas and parties, people gather from near and far to celebrate with friends and reunite with family.
This year you will not have to miss out on any of the Christmas festivities from back home. "Pasko Expo" is here! This soon-to-be yearly celebration will have holiday lights and decorations, local and international entertainment, delicious traditional food, and much more!The First Annual "Pasko Expo" will be held in Solano Fairgrounds, Vallejo, California.
According to the New York Times, Vallejo ranks on top as the most diverse city in the United States. By holding "Pasko Expo" in such a diverse community, we will bring the love, warmth, and spirit of the Christmas in the Philippines to you, to all Filipinos, and to everyone here in America.We, at "Pasko Expo", would like to invite you, your family, and friends to be part of this fun-filled celebration. 2008 marks our inaugural year, but with your participation and support, we all can make this an annual event to enjoy and to remember, not only for this year, but for every year from now on.
Let's celebrate Christmas the way it's done in the Philippines.A WORD FROM DAVE: I have always like selling at the Filipino Events, but the $300 booth fee for ONE DAY is a bit much to swallow. The first year for this...uh uh. The fee is reasonable for a two-day event, but you must also consider probable adverse weather conditions and the refusal of visitors to spend their money. However, there is no entrance fee for the visitors and that makes for a great (inexpensive) time for them. Should be enjoyable.
