This site is about hand crafted/made artist/crafter and vendor collaboration, cooperation and community.


No White Tent features Florida shows that support local artists and local issues. The shows should be under ( way under preferred!) $150/day. We like shows with no prissy "look a like" requirements where new vendors are welcome and artists that like to create their selling environment can create a fun one of a kind event.

We love it when Florida shows keep the money in Florida.

This site is paid for by once a year voluntary donations from members. 2012-13 was covered by a almost a dozen of the 400 vendors on this site. Please thank them!

Vendors have to pay for shows, supplies and more--why should we pay for a place to FIND a show to PAY for?

If an entry is incomplete - please contact the show sponsor as we have no further information.

Together, we can make a difference in finding great shows, supporting good events and raising money for places and things we love.
