Shrimp Festival Vendor Information
Thank you for your interest in the 62nd Fort Myers Beach Lions Shrimp Festival. This year the event will take place on March 14th & 15th, 2020, at Lynn Hall Park, 950 Estero Blvd. Ft. Myers Beach, FL 33931.
Your participation in this event helps the Fort Myers Beach Lions raise close to $60,000 each year for the local community of those in need. For a list of charities that benefit, please visit our club website here.
We have some new features this year such as an online application and payment option for vendors. We hope this will help streamline the process and make it more efficient for everyone in the long run. Our Lions club is mighty, but small, and we need all the extra time and effort we can get. That being said…
- Set up will be on Friday, after 4PM, or Saturday, completed by 8:30AM. More information will be provided at a later date. The bridge to the North end of the beach will close at 9AM on Saturday until noon. You must be on San Carlos Blvd, West of Summerlin by 7:30 AM on Saturday in order to be sure to get over the bridge prior to its closing.
- Parking can be difficult on the beach. Commercial lots, sadly, do not give breaks to vendors. The entrance to the park is designed for cars and small vans, not motor homes and large trailers. Each vendor spot is a 10 x 16 asphalt parking spot. Please bring materials to weigh down tents. March can be windy and we have experienced 20 mph winds. We are on the beach so, expect some sand!
- Please contact the Ft. Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce for information about motor home and trailer parking, also for accommodation information. Their phone number is (239) 454-7500.
- You must include at least two pictures with your application, no matter how many years you have participated. The application will allow you to submit up to five images. You also have the option to opt in for your vendor info and product images to be featured on the event website. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity for attendees to get excited about your products before they even get to the festival!
This is a wonderful event in an amazing location and I can’t wait to see who will be participating! This is my first year as Expo chair so please help me by adhering to all instructions. I appreciate your cooperation in advance!
