Earth Day is a two-day festival that is $155* per booth space for non-profits and $415* per booth space for businesses. CEC has a number of options for small, volunteer-based, non-profit organizations that need assistance to attend.
*Note: Fees increase to $255 for non-profits and $515 for businesses in April.
We have designed the event by subject area -- or zone. You will be asked to select the zone that best matches the intent of your exhibit. Our team will then make actual booth assignments for all exhibitors and will begin releasing those placements on Friday March 8, 2013.
If you would like to be a food vendor at Santa Barbara Earth Day, fill out the Food Vendor Questionnaire. This is the first step of the application process.
The Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival boasts an attendance of over 35,000 people in 2012. You can leverage easy online marketing and social media to get people directly to YOUR booth. Download our social media prompts for exhibitors and sponsors and our free social media guide.
If you are already applying to be a food vendor at the festival, the health permit is included in your Food Vendor Application. Please look for it there.
If you are an exhibitor in the general area of the festival but will be handing out ANY ingestible items at your booth you must obtain a health permit from the Santa Barbara Health Department.
If you will be selling ANYTHING at CEC's Earth Day Festival, you will need to obtain a one-day vending permit from the City of Santa Barbara and have it displayed prominently at your booth.
This is an easy 5-minute form and a $10 fee to the City of Santa Barbara. If you are a non-profit or hold a current City of Santa Barbara business license, the City will waive the fee; however you still must fill out the form.
