Jasper Community Arts Seeking Chalk Walk Vendors and Volunteers

(NNDC)

Jasper Community Arts’ 18th annual Chalk Walk Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, June 5th on the square in downtown Jasper from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  (Rain date: June 12th). This family-friendly event is chock-full of creative and fun activities for the young and the young-at-heart.

In preparation for this day of fun, Jasper Community Arts is soliciting applicants for the Arts Market, Food Vendors, Community Services, and Volunteers.

The Arts Market is a mini fine arts festival.  JCA is looking for artists and craftsmen of all kinds including furniture makers, painters, potters, photographers, blacksmiths, weavers, sculptors, jewelry makers and more.  The fee for a booth space is $25 and artists must supply their own booths.  Anyone who is interested may call JCA Visual Arts Coordinator, Emily Peak, at 812-482-3070.

Food is always an important part of any day-long festival.  Non-profit organizations are invited to participate as a Food Vendor.  If you use a tent, it must meet state Fire Marshal codes.  The fee for a booth space is $25. Anyone who is interested in being a food vendor may call Bryce Conway at 812-482-3070.

Jasper Community Arts welcomes community service groups wishing to have a booth with an activity or information relevant to those in attendance.  If the group is non-profit and not selling items there is no booth fee. The fee for a booth space for groups not meeting the criteria listed above is $25. Call Bryce Conway at 812-482-3070 for more information.

In conjunction with Chalk Walk, The Next Act will be showing the original 1951 film “Alice in Wonderland.” More information on that will be released as the event gets closer. Visit www.TheNextAct.org for more.
