Call for Children to Participate in the Hilltown Spring Festival Kids-Made Craft Area
Kids-Made Crafts to debut at Hilltown Spring Festival, May 15th, 2010
The 4th Annual Hilltown Spring Festival is on May 15th at the Cummington Fairgrounds, produced by the Hilltown CDC. New this year is a Kids-Made Craft area for children up to the age of 13 to sell their hand-made crafts and art. The Hilltown CDC’s goals are to allow children to participate directly in the Festival, to reward them for their creativity, and to give them some real-world experience showing and selling their work. The Kids-Made Crafts area will be highlighted in a central covered area on the fairground, and all crafts and art must be hand-made predominantly by children.
The Hilltown Spring Festival is a family-friendly event. It features two music stages (Charles Neville, The Primate Fiasco, Swing Caravan and much more); a Focus on Sustainability, including demonstrations of solar heat, hot water, and electricity, and information about local agriculture and home energy solutions; food from local hilltown eateries, including local brews; displays by adult artists and crafters, and children’s activities all day long, including a kids show with The Primate Fiasco!
This year children will participate directly in the Festival as vendors allowing for hands-on experience in showing and selling their crafts. Participants must be pre-registered and able to bring their own tables and chairs. The fee for child artists and crafters is $5. Registration forms must be filled out and returned with registration fee to the Hilltown CDC:
Only a certain number of children can be accommodated, so register early. Vendors will not be charged for parking. If there are questions, call Seth Isman at 413-296-4536 x12 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
