 9th Annual CAC Fine Arts & Craft Festival: Saturday, Sept 10th

This successful event always draws thousands and is being relocated to State Street this year. We'll be using a new layout where the artists setup in the middle of State Street so strolling attendees will have an unobstructed view of and access to our merchants.

 Dining Under the Stars continues to be a big hit this year, bringing a multitude of hungry people to town every Wednesday evening.  The event will run through September, so if you will be staying open during the event, let us know... we'll be printing cards for every restaurant table listing the participating retailers and encouraging diners to shop after dinner. 
 31st Annual Media Food & Crafts Festival: Sunday, Oct 2nd

Another great opportunity will come in October when Media hosts its 31st Annual Food Fest.  Retailers and non-profits are being offered a special participation fee of $65 for a space on the street.  Like the CAC art show, this will be a great opportunity to take advantage of the thousands of strolling attendeesFor details and signup, see the attached form or contact Zubair Khan at 610.566-5039.
