For a first-time festival, the 2011 Simply Slavic event in downtown Youngstown was an amazing success!
Over 3,000 people came down for the inaugural one-day event last June, which was filled with delicious food and drink, dancing, educational opportunities, and most of all ... FUN.
Now, onto this year . . . mark your calendars for Saturday, June 16, 2012.
Do you want your church, business, or organization join in the ethnic festivities and make big profits like last year's participants?
Here's a great summary of the day from the Casey Malone Show:
All the forms to participate in the day's activities are now online:
Food Vendor Form
Craft/Marketplace Vendor Form
Heritage Table Form
Please note: vendors are expected to sell food and crafts of an ethnic variety. Vendors are welcome from anywhere in Northeast Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and all over the world!
If you are a church, and your parishoners make the best home-cooked food, then this is the festival for you!
If you are an organization, and your members sell unique ethnic crafts, then this is the festival for you!
If you are a stromboli vendor or a snow cone vendor, please call the folks at Youngstown's many other wonderful ethnic festivals for vendor opportunities.
Food vendor and marketplace vendor forms are due March 30, so tents can be ordered at a resonable price.
Please connect through contacts on the Simply Slavic website if questions arise.
