Spring Spree Festival - May 17, 2014
Posted Date:
2/25/2014
The Town of Aberdeen, in partnership with Aberdeen Business Guild and Star 102.5FM & WIOZ 550AM, are sponsoring the 3rd Annual Spring Spree Festival on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Historic Downtown Aberdeen. The festival is free and open to the public for a fun and enjoyable afternoon with family-friendly entertainment, food, arts and crafts.

The festival began in 2011 as collaboration between the merchants from downtown Aberdeen and its local business guild. They wanted to have an event that celebrated and exposed the eclectic mixture of businesses that gave Aberdeen this funky and hip vibe as a community in the County. As more people are moving into the area, they wanted the residents to know and see our beautiful and charming downtown.

The children’s entertainment area will be located in the grassy area between Main and South Streets known to locals as the “Y” area. Bouncing castles, games, face painting and other events will be provided free of charge.

The Railroad Club will have the train exhibit open from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in The Depot.  The Depot is located in Downtown Aberdeen at 100 East Main Street.

Arts and crafts merchants will be setting up side by side with local nonprofit organizations from the area. You may find an assortment of beaded jewelers, wood crafters, potters, photographers, and other crafters. Food vendors will also be present for the festival. Nonprofit organizations will be educating people about their organization’s mission and elicit volunteers for their foundation.

Live music from local artists and bands will be playing throughout the day of the event. We hope residents will come and enjoy themselves and celebrate what the Town has to offer.

The cost to setup as a vendor will be $45 for new vendors and $25 for returning vendors. Guidelines and applications can be found on the Town’s website under News and Announcements. If you have any interest or further questions, please contact the Planning Department and ask for Jae Kim or Pam Graham at (910) 944-7024 or Molly Menard, President of the Aberdeen Business Guild at (910) 944-1212.
