Food Booth Applications Now Online for 2017 Festival of the Arts

The 2017 Festival of the Arts planning is underway and now is the time to submit applications for food booths. Interested parties should send an email message to food@festivalgr.org requesting an application package. The application will be provided electronically via email.

Those interested in having a food booth at Festival of the Arts must be a non-profit or charitable organization and be located in either Kent County or one of the seven surrounding counties. Last year 27 organizations set up booths offering delicious ethnic specialties, desserts and more.

Since a portion of weekend sales go back to the organization, it provides a wonderful way for the organization to raise money. Over Festival’s 47-year history, food booth proceeds have helped build churches, fund school projects, promote food pantries and helped support local arts organizations.

Festival of the Arts encourages those interested to apply soon since space is limited. Deadline for submission is November 28, 2016. Please see the Festival of the Arts website at www.festivalgr.org/guide/food for a complete list of the 2016 participating organizations. Festival of the Arts welcomes and values diversity and anyone meeting the application requirements is encouraged to apply.
