Festival set for weekend start
May 8, 2013 by Sarah
Over this coming weekend, Nassau County Craft Shows will be hosting a street festival in East Meadow, New York. As with other Nassau County Craft street fairs, it will feature only the highest quality craftsmen and vendors, who vary between the established and the emerging talents in the region.
In 2008, Alan Finchley founded Nassau County Craft Shows with the idea of creating street fairs that were an enjoyable experience for vendors. By offering vendors incentives, like greater space between their booths for customers to stand, the organization has been able to attract and retain high quality vendors and artisans for its festivals.
During this 2013 season, Hurricane Sandy is still fresh in many Long Islanders’ minds. To support those still suffering from the hardship of that event, Nassau County Craft Shows has reduced the renting cost of its booths. Additionally, some of the money received from booth rentals will be given to Kiwanis – a charity that supports children in need.
It is likely that organizers for this event will turn to printing companies for their advertising needs. Handing out flyers or putting up promotional posters in areas like Mineola, Bayside, or Port Washington would generate a great deal of interest in the event. Vendors may also want digital business cards to hand out to potential customers as, well as flyers or brochures that detail their wares.
The fair runs from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on both Saturday (May 11) and Sunday (May12).
