Fall Fest 2016

Sep 17, 2016

Main Street, Garden City

Plans are underway for Downtown Garden City's FallFest 2016, slated for Saturday, September 17th from 8:30am to 3pm on Main Street in Garden City.

"As always, the goal for FallFest is to provide local and area vendors the opportunity to sell their unique products to citizens from all over Kansas, in the centralized location of Main Street in Downtown Garden City," said Downtown Vision Executive Director Myca Bunch.

This year's festival features partnerships with the Knights of Columbus Oktoberfest food court, as well as arts & crafts vendors, the Nasduck 500 race, buck-a-duck races for the kids, and the entertainment arena to create a day-long, family friendly event. Opportunities for art vendors interested in participating in FallFest are available and encouraged. The annual Art in the Park event will not take place in conjunction with this year's FallFest as Art in the Park organizers are planning to host their next event in 2017.         

Last year's FallFest attendance was well over 5,000 and another record crowd is anticipated. This annual event is similar in format to last year's festival. The booth rental starts at $50 and goes up, depending on booth size and electricity needs. Booths run up and down the center of Main Street to help with the flow of traffic and to entice festival goers to venture into downtown stores. The entertainment will be in the central location of Main & Laurel for family and friends to meet up or just sit, relax, and enjoy the entertainment. The booths will be placed at appropriate locations to accommodate all types of vendors and products.

To participate in FallFest 2016 as a vendor or entertainer, please contact the Downtown Vision office at 620.276.0891 or email vision@gcdowntown.com

 Deadline for entries is Friday, September 2, 2016. Requests received after this date will pay an additional $25 late fee. No vendors accepted after September 15.  For questions or more information, please contact the Downtown Vision office.
