An Event Permit is required to sell or distribute nursery products or floral items at a temporary location.  One Event Permit equals one day (or any portion of a 24 hour period) of operation. 

For each event, you must contact TDA to request a permit at least one day before the event.

Class 1 – 4 licensees may only use Event Permits to sell at trade shows, garden shows, or other horticultural exhibits.

You may purchase additional Event Permits blocks containing 10 permits for $50 per block.  You may purchase an unlimited number of Event Permit blocks each year.
