Vendors sought for Gwynn’s Island Festival
The Gwynn’s Island Civic League is currently booking spaces for vendors who wish to participate in the Gwynn’s Island Festival on Saturday, June 28.
Artisans who make and sell their work; vendors of resale items that are unusual, unique and not generally available from local sources; and local businesses that wish to provide information but not offer goods for sale may contact arts and crafts coordinator Brenda Rice at 725-3105.
Musicians, entertainers and food vendors may contact festival chairman Cricket Call at 725-7577. Call is especially interested in supporting local groups that operate food booths as fundraisers for their organizations.
The festival program will contain a map of the festival grounds showing vendor booth layout, pictures and articles of interest, and advertising pages, said a press release. To advertise a business or show support for the festival, contact Call.
This year marks the 66th anniversary of the Gwynn’s Island Festival and the 40th year of the arts and crafts show, said the release. Originating as a homecoming day for the families on the island, the festival now draws crowds from a wide area of eastern Virginia.
