The 13th annual Central Florida Earth Day will happen on Saturday, April 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando! It is now 10 days away!
Please check the Vendors page of the website to confirm that your name and link are accurate. If not, please call (not email) me to make any correction.
The last vendor orientations will be at Lake Eola Park on Saturday, April 14 at 4:00 p.m. & 6:00 p.m., Sunday, April 15 at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.; and Monday, April 16 at 5:00 p.m. Please meet at the front of Eola House (park office) at the end of Washington Street across from the children's playground. Vendor orientations are not mandatory but are recommended especially for new vendors or those doing anything more than a standard tent or table setup.
Earth Day posters and flyers are being distributed now. If you haven't received them and would like some, please contact Sam Maldonado at Sam@CFEarthDay.org or 954-881-9571. Please also promote Earth Day on your website, to your email lists, and any other way you can think of; information on how to do so is on the Promote page.
Please RSVP on the Earth Day Facebook event page. Participants in the event are welcome to promote your participation there. Please also join the Earth Day Facebook community page. Look for our Earth Day Info Guide in Earth Sponsor Orlando Weekly next week!
If you would like to drop off some or all of your stuff Friday night, we will be at the park between 5:00-9:00 p.m. for you to do so. Afterward a security guard will be there until the next morning. Drive up N. Osceola Avenue near the sidewalk where the food prep demos are. The next morning move your stuff from this area to your spot. Please do not actually set up your booth the night before without express permission after you arrive. Your booth may not be safeguarded and you may incur expensive rental fees. If you drop off and your booth is far away, we can transport your stuff by golf cart on Saturday morning. We strongly urge you to drop off the night before to avoid the chaos of the morning.
Vendor locations will be emailed on Wednesday, April 18. Please be patient and wait until then for your assignment. Please understand that it takes a considerable amount of time for us to make the best placement decisions we can both for individual vendors and for the event as a whole.
Please go to the Vendor Packet page of the website to download and read the Lake Eola Park rules and vendor information sheet. The map of vendor locations and the list of vendor assignments will also be there when ready.
We will be sending all vendors detailed information about Earth Day in the next few days. Please watch your email for that. Unless there is an emergency, please be patient and wait for that information as it becomes available. We're all excited about the event and want to make sure that we take the time to have the most up to date and comprehensive information for you. Thanks for your cooperation.
