Food Festival Merchant Participation
The 32nd Annual Media Food Festival is scheduled for Sunday, October 7th. Last year, the Media Borough Merchants were invited to participate by displaying merchandise for sale along State Street. This was a wonderful addition to the show and the feedback the MBA received from the merchants was very favorable.

 As we continue this opportunity, we are hoping to encourage merchants who may not have participated last year, to consider joining us this year. The spaces are 10' X 10' and when possible, can be in front of your business. The fee for the space is $70.

The Food Festival is one of Media's most popular and best attended events. Participation in this event is another wonderful way to promote your business while enjoying a great community experience. Applications for participation are available from the Media Business Authority office at the Borough Hall, by calling 610-566-5039 or by sending an email request to Please feel free to contact with any questions as well.
Ad Design By Penncrest Students
The Graphic Communications class at Penncrest has an Advertisement Design assignment which requires the students to meet with representatives of local businesses and design an advertisement. There is no obligation on your part to use the ad and no restriction against using it. Clients would meet with teams of 2-3 students a few times (to establish needs and parameters for the ad, review the initial design and to see the finished product). If you're interested in participating in this project you can contact Steve Mescanti (610-627-6227 / to arrange your meeting.
