In 2019 there will be an application/entry fee for the Children’s Gasparilla Parade, $950 for commercial applicants and $450 for non-profit organizations and/or performing groups (dance studios, performing arts academies, etc.). The Parade Committee has elected to waive the application/entry fee for school marching bands and/or school performance teams in an effort to salute and encourage school spirit and unity. ***Parade entry fees are subject to change.

The application/entry fee may be paid by check, made out to EventFest, Inc., or credit card, a copy (front and back) of the credit card MUST be submitted with the rest of your Children’s Gasparilla Parade application. All entry fees paid by credit card will incur a 5% convenience fee. Applications without an application fee check or credit card payment will be incomplete and therefore will not be considered.

Any organization who has been denied entry into the 2019 Children’s Gasparilla Parade by the Parade Committee will receive an application/entry fee refund before the event.
