Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2007

NON ARTIST - 2007 Summer Shade Festival Application

Grant Park Summer Shade Festival 2007

Dear Exhibitor:

The 2007 Grant Park Summer Shade Festival is currently accepting applications for its Market and Non Profit Exhibit Area scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 25th and 26th. Sponsored by The Grant Park Conservancy and a host of business supporters, the Fifth Annual Summer Shade Festival is on track to continue its growth as one of Atlanta’s coolest events.

The festival is located in historic L.P. Grant Park and is easily accessed from Interstate highways I-20 and I-75/85. The setting provides a wonderful shady backdrop for the Festival. The weekend is filled with a variety of featured events including an Artist Market, food vendors, the Adams Realtors 5K Run for the Park on Saturday morning, live performance stages, a children’s fun center and our fine food and wine event – Corks & Forks. We anticipate 16,000-18,000 attendees during the two day festival. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Grant Park Conservancy and its efforts to restore this historic green space.

Advertising for the 2006 Festival was broad-based and included both broadcast (DAVE-FM 92.9 and WABE FM 90.1), print (Atlanta Intown, The Story, Atlanta Magazine, Porch Press, Atlanta Journal and Constitution, Creative Loafing, + others) and web based promotions (CraigsList, AtlantaBuzz, Atlanta Illustrated, What’s Up Atlanta Daybook, Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau, + scores of others). Plans for 2007 are to cast an even wider net to gather more media focus and draw potential buyers.

Our Exhibitor participation fees are designed to encourage early application/entry and to provide an affordable investment. The Festival will review all applications and fill available slots with local community based organizations and/or environmental organizations. Other groups or organizations will be considered if slots remain. The submission of an application does not guarantee space. Entry fee checks are not processed until the Review Committee reaches a decision. Original entry fee check will be returned to those not selected. Since we have a limited number of 10’x10’ non profit/community spaces available, we recommend you complete and submit your application at the earliest date listed below to take advantage of pricing and to give our Selection Committee sufficient time to review your entry. The Review Committee meets shortly after each deadline or until allocated space is filled. Committee decisions are final. Fees for participation are:

Early Bird Application/Registration – March 15, 2007 $150.00
Regular Application/Registration – May 15, 2007 $200.00
Last Minute Application/Registration – (if space remains) – June 30, 2007 $250.00

All Exhibitors are required to have a 10’x10’ tent (white is preferred). You may provide your own tent or request a tent from the Festival ($250 weekend rental includes set up/take down, weighting, two chairs, one six foot table; side panels can be provided upon request at a cost of $12 per side.). Tents must be weighted on all corners to secure them in case of storm or wind. Electricity is not available and generators are not allowed. No staking of tents or for any other purpose is allowed.

Please submit check payable to the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival and mail with the completed application/registration to 2007 Grant Park Summer Shade Exhibitors, 499 Broyles Street. SE Atlanta, GA 30312. Cancellations or withdrawals may be requested by August 1 for a refund of application fees. The Festival will retain a $15.00 processing fee.
