Spring Spree Festival scheduled for Saturday, May 16th
Posted Date:

The Town of Aberdeen in partnership with the Aberdeen Business Guild is sponsoring the 4th Annual Spring Spree Festival on Saturday, May 16, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Historic Downtown Aberdeen. The festival is open and free 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.

Arts and crafts merchants will be setting up side by side with local nonprofits 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. Nonprofits will be there to educate 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. We hope residents will come and enjoy themselves and celebrate what the Town has to offer.

The cost to setup as a vendor is $50 for new vendors and $35 for returning vendors. We have implemented an “Early Bird Special” this year - $35 for ALL vendors who apply prior to April 1st. Guidelines and applications can be downloaded here. If you have any interest or further questions, please contact the Planning Department and ask for Daniel Martin or Jae Kim at (910) 944-7024 or Molly Menard, President of the Aberdeen Business Guild at (910) 944-1212.
