Organizers of the 2018 Spencer Pride Festival report that registrations for the festival marketplace are already at more than halfway to their goal for 100 vendors. This is an indication of the strong interest in the 12th annual event, which is scheduled for Saturday, June 2 from 10 AM until 5 PM. Nearly 100 vendors have participated in the marketplace for the past 2 years.
Organizations interested in registering for the 2018 Spencer Pride Festival are encouraged to do so now so that they can take advantage of the early-bird fee. This promotion discounts standard registration costs by 50%.
To register in the 2018 Spencer Pride Festival marketplace, visit www.SpencerPride.org/portal. Registration takes less than 15 minutes. Early-bird registration ends on February 24th.
During the early-bird registration period, registration fees are $25 for not-for-profit organizations, $40 for for-profit organizations, & $50 for vendors who wish to sell food. The food vendor fee also includes access to electricity & water.
The 2018 Spencer Pride Festival theme is “Remember the Past, Create the Future.” Given the recent opening of the Spencer Pride commUnity center in its new permanent home in a historic building on the courthouse square, the theme seems especially relevant.
Individuals interested in assisting with the planning of the festival are encouraged to attend the monthly Spencer Pride volunteer meeting, which takes place on the first Sunday of each month from 4 – 6 PM. The next meeting takes place on March 4.
