Entertainers, artisans, community groups, and businesses in and around Barriere will be contacted sometime in the next week or two regarding the 2013 Bandshell Friday events at Fadear Park.
While there will be no fee for artisans, non-profit groups, or other vendors; those wishing to be food vendors will need to decide how they want to sign up.
The choices for food vendors will basically be on whether or not to be a sponsor. As a sponsor, they will be able to keep 100 per cent of their profit, and will receive a fair amount in the way of advertising (mention on all posters, etc.), as well as having first choice of location for their booths.
If they choose not to be a sponsor, then they will be asked to remit 10 per cent of their profit, if that profit is $100 or less, or 15 per cent of their profit, if that profit is $100.01 or more.
Information and forms for vendors and sponsors will be available shortly from the District office. Those interested in participating in any capacity should contact committee chair Councillor Amanda Sabyan, or executive assistant Tasha Buchanan, by calling 250-672-9751.
The Bandshell Friday events will take place every Friday during July and August. Vendors can start setting up on Fridays, from 3 p.m. on, with the entertainment running from 6-9 p.m. Those wishing to have a booth must pre-register.
The next Bandshell Fridays committee meeting will be held on June 18, 3:30 p.m., in the District Chambers.
