2016 Vendor Information




The Crystal Classic Vendor Village is open for business from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Friday, November 11 through Monday, November 14, 2016.  Open until 5:30 PM on Sunday.  (Food Vendors, please note that you will need to remit $105 in money order or cashier's check to the Florida DBPR.)  The Village is set up around the perimeter of the competition and provides great food, great shopping and information about great services!

New in 2016!  If you are a food vendor and wish to be considered for the interior location at the covered Entertainment Stage, please indicate.  The cost is $100 additional for an interior tent.  Please note that you must submit your menu for consideration.  Specifically, we are looking for specialty beverages and adult drinks and food to compliment our beer tent.  These 5 tents will be associated with our entertainment venue inside the perimeter.

For more information and to download and fill out a 2016 application, please click here.  NOTE:  Vendors will not have assistance to leave the beach prior to Monday, November 14th, by order of our permit requirements.

Vendor set-up is scheduled on Thursday, 11/10.   Please watch your email for your scheduled arrival/unload time.  If you do not have a submitted application, you will be unable to unload and enter the vendor area.  This will delay your departure time.

The first 50 vendors will receive 1 reserved parking pass for 1 space (no trailer parking in reserved lot) in the reserved lot and 2 wristbands for the event.  No exceptions will be permitted as reserved space is extremely limited.  Reserved parking will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis as we will not have availability for all vendor vehicles.

Please also note that you MUST HAVE SUBMITTED a signed application in order to participate in this show and PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED.  Money order, cashier's check or Credit Card only.  If you have only paid online, please submit your application per instructions separately.
