According to the Lodestone web page detailing the event,
"The Crystal Caravan has come to Ul'dah, and plans to put on the performance of a lifetime. To ensure the actors can truly bring their roles to life, however, the troupe leader seeks those who can tell them more of the great heroes who will be portrayed on stage. Adventurers with a love for the theater and the arts are encouraged to seek them out."
The map above shows the exact location of where the Crystal Caravan's leader will be located throughout the event. From the Caravan Leader, you can obtain the event's unique seasonal quests.
