The proposal for an Inn Street Artisans Labor Day Market Show was accepted as a late file for last nights City council meeting.
After an early pre-emptive strike on targeted members of council, I was able to hit early, hit hard, and basically get an agreement to the Labor Day show prior to last nights meeting and be home by 7:30.
I’m getting pretty good at this ; )
But before saying it is outright approved, the event proposal has been adopted by City Councilman Bruce Vogel, and is now headed to license and oversight committee for approval, in which Bruce Vogel is one quarter of. Another twenty five percent was occupied by Councilman Eigerman, as he cleared the way to the License Oversight Committee. So I would say it’s pretty much a slam dunk from here.
Close enough that I am now accepting reservations for the show that starts on Saturday, September 2, 2017 and runs through Monday September 4th, 2017.
I am not sure of the fee as of yet. I am still working this out with committee. It will NOT be more than $250.00 for the three days. It could be less. It all depends on what the city does and how it does it. I will have more on this as it progresses.
I will be booking 10-12 artisans to start. If there is more of a demand for space then I will reconsider options.
Obviously this is a total experiment. I do not ever recall seeing an artisan show on Inn Street during Labor day before. There will be much to learn here. I do believe there is great potential, not only for sales, but for local artisan vendor exposure and publicity. Perhaps even more than Yankee Homecoming seeing it is almost an event of its own. Although it runs simultaneously with the Riverfest concert on Saturday, Sunday and Monday we will be on our own.
I will have much more to share on this in the coming days. But for now I just wanted to get this initial stage of development out to you.
Please let me know if you are interested in reserving a spot as soon as you can. Once I receive a dozen reservations, I will put out the notice, and go from there.
There will be a lot of information coming forth regarding the details of this show, but in the meantime, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
