Tamarac Chamber of Commerce will present the second Tamarac Arts and Crafts Festival in April 1st and 2nd, 2017, with a focus on original art works that communicate the creativity and flair of the local community. After a successful festival in 2016, Tamarac will debut the collaboration of artists, musicians, jewelers, photographers, and artisans to showcase their talents and products. Food trucks, entertainment, crafters, and an interactive children’s areas are a few offerings of the festival.
The Arts and Crafts Festival is an initiative of the Tamarac Chamber of Commerce to celebrate all that is Tamarac. With the intention of connecting people from different cultures, ages and places; the festival truly captures the essence of community. The reason for the success? It is a direct representation of the thriving community!
There are various ways to involve yourself in the upcoming festival; namely sponsorship, artistic talent, and supporting through attendance.
Why get involved?
Sponsorship is one of the ways that you can get involved. The festival provides an exclusive marketing opportunity with a large spectator presence and on-site media. It is one of the festival’s objectives to put to the forefront both the vendors and the business sponsors that Tamarac has to offer. As a five-year projected event, your choice of sponsorship package involvement will be sowing a seed of community, and adding to the overall high level of event quality.
As an artist or craftsman, your unique creations will be displayed and commercially offered to the community. This opportunity extends further to include entertainment artists and their chance to perform to a crowd. Applications are open and encouraged for both artists and entertainers.
Children are an important focus of the community. That is why the festival has an allocated children’s play area that encourages artistic development and cultural entertainment. In addition, 2017 introduces a “robotics” expo with a focused intention on inspiring teenagers to explore the field of robotics in their school and as extra-curricular activities.
The intention of the festival is to boost the sense of community, foster pride and add an economic spin to local talents, hobbies and creative skills. Showcasing local work to both residents and visitors allows for revenue to be generated.
The collaboration of artists, sponsors, entertainers and planners at a community festival generates a sense of kinship that can otherwise be hard to come by. Relationships are strengthened through interactions, and insight is given into neighbor participants as they showcase their work or service. There are new things to be learnt and the community reputation and pride is reinforced.
A festival provides a fun way to support local businesses in a personalized environment. The profits are fed back into the community, and creativity is inspired. A perfect opportunity to get involved and become an active part of the community.
