Does anybody have a list of vendors for this year?
I do not know whether they completed compiling their list, but I found a lot of vendors on the website: Tamiami International Orchid Festival | Orchid Festival
I've asked a few of the vendors I like to shop with and a couple said they were trying to get in and another said they weren't going because of Covid. I also heard from one that they were going and another that wanted to go if travel was possible.
Thanks, unfortunately, this is a 2020 vendor list. I assume a lot of them won't be able to come. I like to shop with Popow but there is still a travel ban so European Union residents cannot enter the US.
Out of curiosity -
Is anyone planning on going to Tamiami this year? I'm undecided at the moment, but pre-orders for most places are due soon.
I was planning to go. It is being held. They are asking attendees to be vaccinated but can't ask if people are. They want attendees to wear masks, but I don't think they can require it because it is Florida. Maybe things in Florida will turn around before October 1st, but I'm not betting on it. I doubt that I will feel safe enough go.
I'm sure that vendors will be happy to ship those pre-orders. It is not having a chance to see what I didn't know I needed that I will miss.
I absolutely agree Marni. I am hesitant to travel there given how things are going in Florida, and I think you're spot on about what they will/will not require. I do really miss just getting to see things.
If it makes you feel any better, they say they will not be allowing customers to go inside the booths. You can only look at what is on the front table. That will be different. If they can enforce it. I always want to see what is on the back table.
That is good to know! I hadn't read through their postings thoroughly. I agree - I always want to see the stuff hidden at the back.
I've started making of list of the vendors that I might pre-order from to get that process rolling. Though I did notice quite a few that I always check their booths and may buy the odd plant or two.
The ipa meeting in Apopka, Fl the weekend of the 7th... there’s continual small sale only type sales going on down there.
Florida right now though? Nope.
