Carolina Classifieds

We publish two separate Festival, Places and Events Magazines every three months with state editions covering the Carolinas and Virginia. Each edition features informative articles on festivals, places of interest and family events.

The classified ads below are intended to provide a forum for event managers to find event professionals (artisans, crafters, vendors, performers, business exhibitors, etc) who want to work at events. In addition, event professionals may sell equipment or supplies. Go here for Classified Ad Rates. Web classifieds are marketed through a popular enewsletter sent to thousands of vendors who have signed up to receive it. Reach these event professionals and thousands more through our festival magazines!
