Project Description


Feb 15 – 17, 2-2024
Santa Barbara, CA

The Premiere Conference for the Festival Industry in North America since 2015: We have tackled issues ranging from ticketing, sponsorship, talent buying, programming, sustainability, safety, marketing and more with panels, contests, keynotes and case studies. FestForums has been held in Santa Barbara, NYC and San Francisco. Live music, film premieres, cooking demos and wine tastings are also our trademark entertainment!

Highlights have included Tito himself pouring Tito’s Vodka, an Alice Cooper impersonator (with Alice Cooper there), Jack Johnson teaching us about sustainability, Dennis Quaid photobombs, and Quentin Tarantino lauding his favorite actor Bruce Dern as well as our annual James Beard Celebrity Chef dinner!
