Vendor Information

Thanks for taking the time to consider participating in our one-of-a-kind festival. The 6th Annual Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival will be held inside the Mesquite Convention Center on February 25 & 26, 2023. Being indoors protects us from the vagaries of the weather, and makes for a more comfortable setting for those taking specially classes. This page provides basic information about this year’s family friendly event in Mesquite, and you can learn about our 22nd Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival right here.

The unique, educational, family-friendly Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival promotes a few of our favorite things: the outdoor lifestyle in general, the quiet sport of fly fishing in particular, and delicious microbrewed Texas beer. If you’re new to the sport of fly fishing, and don’t know where to begin this is just the place for you, Alternatively, if you’re an experienced fly angler, we have plenty of advanced classes and expert regional and nationally known anglers on hand to help advance your knowledge and skills to the next level.

Our vendors are primarily fly fishing fanatics who make and sell everything from flies to outdoor art to custom fly rods to outdoor clothing. They are outdoor artists, fly shop owners, major manufacturers, professional guides and outfitters, and national and international lodge owners. Joining them are reps from outdoor publications, unique food vendors, and brewmasters and distillers from across Texas.

Our attendees pay a general admission fee, which includes beer, wine, and spirit sampling for patrons over the age of 21. Attendees can also purchase these items onsite and enjoy them throughout the festival grounds. Each attendee receives a full color schedule of events, and included in general admission is access to dozens of lectures taught by regional and national experts and authors.

We are of course always in the market for new vendors—especially small, independent business owners who are eager to share their passion for the outdoors (and especially for fly fishing) with a new generation of Americans.

We try to make things as easy for our vendors as possible, so all standard booth spaces are 10 x 10, piped and draped. You are invited to bring your own carpet or decorations if you like, but they must be contained in your space.  Vendor spaces also come with a table, two chairs, access to wi-fi. Electrical service is available for an additional fee.

Space is available strictly on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrangements can be made for bulk space.
