Vendors invited to participate in local fair
Submitted By Helen Kennedy
An exciting day of live entertainment, international food booths, children's activities, a marketplace and health fair are expected to draw around 4,000 people to Union City's Kennedy Park on July 18. Vendors are invited to sign up for the Gathering in the Park, the last major Union City 50th Anniversary event of the summer, before the June 15 deadline.
The Gathering in the Park is a free, family-friendly community festival celebrating Union City's rich cultural diversity. The entertainment program includes LAVA Latin Rhythms, Big Cat Tolefree and the Hipnotics, Hiyas Philippine Folk Dance Company, Merahi O' Tehani Polynesian Dancers, and Indian Bhangra and Gidha dancing. It will also feature a special performance by visitors from the Hangzhou Youth Cultural Activity Center in China.
Vendor opportunities include:
* Food booths serving a variety of delicious and diverse cuisines
* Participation in "Taste of the World" international food event includes a free booth and offers promotional opportunities.
* Artisans, craftspeople and other merchants
* Cultural displays and information stalls
* A health fair with free medical screenings
It's a great opportunity to showcase your business and sell your products to a large crowd.
Restaurants and caterers participating in "Taste of the World" will receive advertising exposure before, during, and after the friendly competition for favorite food. In exchange for free booth space, donate 500 appetizer-size portions of your signature dish to be tasted by passport holders, who will visit each booth and vote for their favorite dish. You may sell additional items at your booth and place coupons/ads in the passport to draw visitors to your restaurant.
Artists and craft vendors will showcase their wares in the International Marketplace area of the event, and local businesses will have an opportunity to reach new customers.
Vendors may be accepted after the deadline if space permits. To take full advantage of all promotional opportunities, however, sign up today. A vendor packet and complete information is available at www.UnionCity50.com.
