Vendors & Exhibitors
The Spring Market | previously known as 'the flea market'
Please read the updated Rules & Regulations on the Spring Market Vendor Application link as some areas have been updated.
You are now able to submit pictures of your display and/or items you sale for review! This will become mandatory in 2024 and is highly recommended for the 2023 show.
Displays will be added to the ends of each aisle to add aisle designation with beautification and times of the Spring Market so attendees know when to expect vendors to be open for business each day. We are working towards providing a secure area for the Spring Market in future years as we expand into nightly entertainment in other areas of the festival.
Please note: No vehicle movement will be permitted from 9am-6pm Thursday through Saturday and 9am-5pm Sunday without prior arrangements with the office and security due to risks to pedestrians. **upon emergency, 911 dispatch will have security escort movement and open gates**
The Vintage Belle Market
The Vintage Belle Market is a shabby chic, upscale market for handmade artisans, crafters, and custom boutiques or small businesses.
Many vendors in this area are also found at the Fancy Flea and the Vintage Market of Southwest Florida.
Secret Gardens Winery will be in attendance and we host a Sip & Shop Friday, March 3rd, 2023 from 4pm-6pm
Located at the only entrance of the festival and beside The Hardee County Showcase Tent, vendors are sure to catch the eyes of attendees.
Tractor & Engine Exhibit
Where it all began! We love our tractor & engine exhibitors and so do our festival attendees!
Below is the link to register to exhibit, we would love to have you!
Our attendees, young and old, come to see your exhibits, talk about years past, learn how these engines function, and hear all the clacking of the engines! Please keep your display open during show hours and until 4pm Sunday. We understand some must leave early, however, the more who will stay open will set the expectation for attendees to know there's still things to see after work Thursday - Saturday and after church Sunday.
Help us grow this area beyond its glory and better than ever before! Thank you so much for coming!
