---- — The North Andover Merchants Association seeks food vendors, merchants and crafters for its 3rd annual Fall Festival. The event will be held (rain or shine) Sunday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. 4 p.m. on the grounds of the North Andover Knights of Columbus, 505 Sutton St., North Andover.
The festival is a great opportunity for small businesses to promote themselves, their services and products. Any business can sign up, regardless of what community they are based out of.
In addition to craft exhibitors, the festival will include live music, children’s games and activities, a haunted house for all ages, hay rides, beer & wine tent, and much more. The event will conclude with an evening bon fire and hot chocolate at dusk. This event will be heavily advertised by NAMA and like last year, a large turnout is anticipated. Booth space for merchants/crafters is $25 for NAMA members and $75 for non-members. Food vendor fee is $50 for NAMA members and $100 for non-members. Note: A food permit is required from the Town of North Andover.
Early sign-up is recommended as booth space will be awarded on a first come - first serve basis. Same type crafters, food vendors and services will be limited in order to provide greater diversity and variety to the festival offerings.
Applications are available on NAMA’s website at: http://www.northandovermerchants.org/documents. For additional information contact Sylvie Foulds at: firstname.lastname@example.org or Pat Roche at: email@example.com.
