Small businesses looking for a local market need look no further than Brook Run Park in October. The Music Festival, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce is looking for food vendors, artisans, business exhibitors (including non-profits) and sponsors.
There's some way for everyone to get involved here, from small businesses with limited (read: almost no) budget to large corporations. Small local businesses have the advantage because of the face-time contact. The Chamber is expecting 10,000 sets of eyeballs to see your logo, purchase your products, or visit your booth to learn about your services and you. Food vendors - or restaurants who can create a mobile setup - this one's for you. (Anyone got the number of that "Hail Ceasar" salad truck that was in the July 4th parade??)
You can submit your application in less than 5 minutes online at http://www.dunwoodymusicfestival.com/. If you have any issues with any of the forms in the application menu, post a comment and I'll get right on it.
Food vendor applications are due AUGUST 30. (That's 2 weeks from now, gang! Don't put it off to the last minute.)
Marketplace and Business Exhibitor applications are due September 30. First come, first served.
Marketplace vendor booths are $195 each and Exhibitor booths are $500. Discounts apply for early submission.
Food vendor pricing is more detailed. Check out the Food Vendor Application for more info.
Yes, the Chili Cook-Off will be back too. Info will get posted as soon as Oktober gets it over to me.
See you there!
