Selling at Festivals – why to consider festival sales and how much can be made

Sites to get great special on festival sales:

I’d like to share how to make money selling at festivals.  I have included articles to back up my figures.

Unlike some jobs, festivals sales are open for anyone and provide steady income depending on how much you want to devout to it.  For the example here, I am going to simplify things by just mentioning sales of shot glasses at festivals; but you have the options to choose any items you want.

Buying shot glasses personalized through companies in large quantities are generally priced around $1.60 each.  But I have found them as low as $.75 cents, with discount coupon code to make it even less.

Depending on the festival you go to, you have 2 or 3 main expenses to factor.  Cost of a booth/festival sales spot, cost of product, and if you are traveling to the festival, costs of gas.

I don’t need to tell you how varied the attendance of festivals can be, we have all seen large festivals and small festivals.  Before deciding on a festival, make sure that you check online to find out the particular festival attendance for the previous year(s) and costs for a booth / festival spot.

With shot glasses as an example; they generally sell for $7-$10 each for a personalized shot glass with the festival name or logo, and event day(s).  For this example, I have used Woodstock 99 attendance figures of to form shot glass figures based on attendance to form ROI based on difference CR (conversion rate).  The CR or conversion rate, I estimate on the number of sales based on attendance; for example, profits based on 1 sale per every 20 attendees, 1 per every 25, and 1 per ever 50.  Generally this number will be higher for better for smaller events because there is less competing vendors, and also in my figures I am only listing a customer as buying 1 shot glass; where in life, generally there will be many that buy 2 or 3 for souvenirs for family and friends.

So based on this example; selling shot glasses at $7 each equals revenues as follows:

1 sale in every 5

  • $280,000

1 sale in every 25

  • $56,000

1 sale in every 50

  • $28,000

Costs of a booth in the Woodstock 99 example were: $700 for a standard sales booth for the 3 day concert event. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodstock_1999#Vendor_Costs)

In fact, since its inception, more than 1,500 singer-songwriters have performed at the Kerrville Folk Festival.

The rate of sales was one in every 40 “viewers” (second example) which had attendance of around 200k people.

So breaking down expenses for each example we have:

$700 on each

And then based on number of shot glasses sold; we deduct shot glass costs, booth costs our profit is:

1 in 5 sales:   $249,300

1 in 25 sales   $49,300

1 in 50 sales   $24,300

Not too bad for 3 days of fun!
