After 4 years of attending events as a vendor, what makes an event worthwhile besides covering your costs and making a living, is the quality of the event.
Some of my first experiences at yoga events were very challenging, they shall remain nameless, as the intention here is to talk about what makes THIS event, Sat Nam Fest West, worthwhile as a vendor in the Bazaar.
Last year, I attended Sat Nam Fest West as a vendor in the Bazaar. When it’s your first time, you can feel kind of nervous about covering your costs and making a living. It can be nerve-racking or an opportunity to trust, and project your abundance. I chose trust!
The bazaar at Sat Nam Fest was super easy, the people in charge were welcoming, and flexible.
Here you do not pay excessive fees to be near the main stage, so you can ensure sales. Instead, it’s first come, first served. It leaves it up to the vendor to get there on time to pick the booth.
The booths are all near the main and only stage. The best thing for me was the crowd this event draws. Happy people. People who have yoga and meditation as a way of life. People who live it every day. And people who love to sing!
There are no drugs or alcohol at all, not even at the night concerts! Families are relaxed and children love their programs.
There was a point during the event, I felt like I was on vacation!
- As a vendor that was a first.
- I love the music,
- I love the people.
- And I like the food.
- Good vibes,
- plenty of smiles,
- and good friends.
Does that make it worthwhile?
For me it sure does!
The icing was to have made friends who supported my way of living; yes, I made a good living.
I hope to see you there, and show you around the bazaar as year’s Bazaar Captain for Sat Nam Fest West.
