ClydeFEST is a great way for groups to connect with youngsters and their parents. We ask that group participants provide an interactive, handmade craft or project related to your group’s mission. We encourage the use of reclaimed, recycled, or natural materials as much as possible. Brochures and other promotional materials for your group are okay, but they should be secondary to providing a memorable creative activity for ClydeFEST kiddos.
Please do not bring fundraising materials, or host raffles, or sell merchandise at ClydeFEST.
ClydeFEST is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Group participants should arrive by 9:30 a.m. to set up. Please bring your own tables, chairs, and tents as needed. To be good stewards of the Bynum Ballfield, we are not able to permit group participants’ vehicles on the field, so be sure to allow time to carry your equipment to your spot. There is no access to electricity. Group participants are expected to remain set up until ClydeFEST ends at 4 p.m.
New this year: ClydeFEST has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and we need more hands on deck to make this opportunity to happen for our kids and nonprofits. We now ask that you recruit two volunteers–in addition to your booth volunteers–to help out generally with ClydeFEST. You’ll enter their names and email addresses below.
Please complete and submit this application by August 19. We will inform you of the status of your application by September 2. If you have any questions, please email ClydeFEST (at) chathamartscouncil (dot) org.
One more thing…We’ll welcome your assistance in promoting this unique family friendly event by liking our Facebook page, sharing posts, and following and retweeting our Tweets with #clydefest. We’ll do the same for you. It’ll be a #winwin!
