The 2013 AVENUES STREET FAIR will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Avenues Street Fair Committee held its first meeting on Saturday, March 2nd. During the meeting, we determined the location for this year's Fair! We cannot announce the location until the neighbors along the Fair route have been contacted, and until the City gives us our Special Events Permit.
The next Street Fair committee meeting is April 6, 2013 at 9:15 a.m. at the Sweet Branch Library, 9th Avenue and F Street.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - To volunteer for the 2013 Street Fair (we have many volunteer positions) contact volunteer coordinator Sydney Fonnesbeck at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 801-363-4848.
CALL FOR FEATURED ARTIST - Each year, the Avenues Street Fair Committee selects a local artist as our Featured Artist, who then creates an original piece of art that represents the artist's interpretation of what "The Avenues" means to them. The image created becomes our theme of this year's Fair, and is used in all our print ads and publicity materials, on our event t-shirt, and on our commemorative poster. The artist is given a complimentary booth on the day of the Fair. Artists click here for an information sheet. Artists who want to apply, please send an email of your interest and samples of your work to email@example.com. The committee will decide on this year's artist by our May 4 committee meeting.
