Beckley Events is now accepting applications for Taste of Beckley & the Kids Classic Festival

Beckley Events is now accepting vendor booth application for several upcoming events including Taste of Beckley during the Appalachian Festival ‪#‎AppFest2015‬ and Beckley’s Kids Classic Festival.

Taste of Beckley will be held on Saturday, August 29th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in uptown Beckley. Part of the Appalachian Festival, Taste is a festive block party that features local food vendors and entertainment including the Chris Oxley Quartet, 2 Johns, and Piney Creek Canyon Band. Local restaurants and organizations are invited to set up a booth and sell samples of cuisine. It is recommended that items are priced at a discount so that attendees have an opportunity to sample several dishes. According to Jill Moorefield, “It is a great way to reach hundreds, promote your establishment, and if you are judged as the best in any of the competition categories, you’ll receive a certificate to display.” Competition categories include best appetizer, entrée, sandwich, dessert, most attractive booth, and the Peoples’ Choice. Vendors need to be registered by August 12th and follow Health Department rules.

Beckley’s annual Kids Classic Festival is scheduled September 5th – 13th. Baby-related vendors are invited to set-up at the Baby Fair held during Friday in the Park on September 11th. The Uptown Kids Fair features booths with information, food and games for children on Saturday, September 12th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Bands, sports teams, churches, and youth-related groups and businesses may consider being in the 11 a.m. parade &/or setting-up a booth, &/or offering a demonstration, &/or sponsoring the festival or a game at the United arcade. This year’s theme is “Express Yourself” and it will tie into the Youth Museum’s “I Feel” anti-bullying exhibit opening in September and the theme also encourages creativity and showcases talent.
