Event Scheduling FAQ
Can you do more than one show per day?
Yes. If you see a date with only one show scheduled, we may be available to do a second show on the same date.
How far ahead do I have to book my event?
Some shows are scheduled over a year in advance, but some are booked only weeks or months in advance. We've even scheduled shows the day before the event. Our busiest season is mid-June through mid-August, as well as many Saturdays.
How far will you travel?
We will travel wherever we can serve within Pennsylvania. Our program rate includes free local travel, which is a 10 mile radius from our location (17545) based on a mapquest estimate. Additional mileage rates apply to other areas around the state. For a quote to your zip code, please contact us.
But are REPTILES really appropriate for MY EVENT?
Forgotten Friend provides nature programming for countless venues and Jesse has performed over 1,000 shows. We are glad to customize each program to fit your event. Usually our setup looks like this, but we do many custom setups each year for events of all sizes and themes.
We will continue to update this section as planned events become official. Bookmark this page & check back often for places and
events we will be attending. Then come on out and see us!
