What is the WFA Showcase?


The Western Fairs Association has a membership of more than 150 fairs throughout the Western United States and Canada. Every season the fairs of the west spend more than $40 million buying acts and attractions to perform during fair time. These acts perform before a collective audience that exceeds 20 million people. Showcasing at the WFA Convention gives you the opportunity to grab some of those entertainment dollars.

Showcasing is THE Marketing Tool

for entertainers looking to play their local and/or surrounding fairs

A Showcase is your 15-minute audition for fair entertainment buyers. Fair entertainment buyers consider several factors when booking acts for fairs: acts that fit a fair’s specific demographic or theme, acts that are familiar or family friendly, and acts that are fun, entertaining, and that engage the audience.

Application Requirements


Application submissions require a $25 fee and the following support materials:

  • EPK or YouTube link (DVDs also accepted)
  • One digital photo (preferably color)
  • Stage layout/plot


of

Showcase Fee & Marketing Support


Acts selected to perform require an $850 performance fee, which includes the following:

  • Concert quality sound, stage, lights, technicians, and professional production manager
  • Backline and scheduled sound check
  • On-site signage and listing in the Convention Program
  • Photo and contact information in the pre- and post-Convention issues of our Fair Dealer magazine
  • Photo, contact information and link to your website on the WFA website

Selection Process


The number of applications always exceeds the number of performance slots available

Acts are selected by members of the WFA Showcase Selection Committee consisting of industry professionals, entertainment buyers, entertainers, agents; fair managers and staff who select acts most likely to be successful on the fair circuit and the probability of the act receiving work from their Showcase.
All applications and support materials are reviewed

Only those serious about performing for fairs throughout the Western United States and Canada should apply to be considered to Showcase at the WFA Convention

of

In addition to your showcase, you can increase your odds of booking the perfect deal by making yourself available to speak with the buyers at networking events, reserving a Trade Show booth, and joining WFA.

Showcasing is an opportunity to market your act to fair entertainment buyers; it does not guarantee work in the fair industry
