Festival set for the streets

May 5, 2013 by  

Nassau County Craft Shows will be hosting its third annual street festival in today in Bethpage, New York. It will feature emerging and established craft artisans and vendors who will be selling their wares, all of which are high quality and mostly handmade.

Nassau County Craft Shows was founded by Alan Finchley in 2008. He has made a commitment to create fairs that are favorable for vendors to attend. They try to have greater space between vendor booths and work to make things more convenient for the vendors participating. In this way, they attract quality vendors and artisans with excellent wares to all of their festivals, many of whom will likely attend other Nassau County Craft Shows as well, which is great for consumers looking for an interesting street fair experience.

For the 2013 season, Nassau County Craft Shows has also reduced the cost of booths for vendors by up to 20% due to the continuing hardships suffered by many in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. A percentage of the income they generate from vendor rentals will also be given to the charity Kiwanis, which helps needy children.

Organizers for this event will probably want to turn to local printing companies for their advertising needs. Flyers and promotional posters are a good way to alert people to the existence of the fair, and distributing them in nearby areas like Melville, Farmingdale, or Hicksville, will generate awareness.

The event is free to attend, and many of the vendors accept credit cards. The festival opens at 10:00 am and will run until 6:00 pm at the parking lot area by the Bethpage LIRR station.
