Virtual May Fair, Sat, May 8, 4-8 pm
We are excited to announce the SHCA Virtual May Fair, open for visiting NOW. Live virtual event Saturday May 8th, 4-8pm. We hope you will participate and help us spread the word to your friends and neighbors. Please CLICK HERE for a downloadable flyer.
Vendors, artists and crafts people, community groups and organizations seeking to do outreach and promotion are invited to be part of the SHCA VIRTUAL May Fair!
Participation is completely FREE of charge for vendors/businesses and guests.
The Spruce Hill Community Association recognizes that this past year has been exceptionally challenging for many of us, especially our small businesses, local artisans, and neighborhood organizations. To support our community partners and businesses, and following input from prior May Fair participants, the Spruce Hill Community Association has committed to hosting a “Virtual May Fair” to provide an opportunity for advertising, interaction, and commerce among vendors and community members. Space is limited and priority will be given to local community organizations and artisans.
The virtual May Fair will be hosted on “Gather”, a fun and configurable 2-D environment equipped with group video chat, games, and other tools to promote a sense of connection. A dedicated volunteer has already designed a space to represent Clark Park, and we have several vendors who have helped us test this and we are ready to add more!
You can go in and visit any time – it’s most fun if you check it out with a friend: CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE VIRTUAL MAY FAIR ANYTIME!
We will set up your booth for you – all you have to do is provide us the information you would like to include in your booth, in the application form: Booth Application form
We understand that this is new to you, and we will be there to help throughout the process. We will set up a standard virtual booth and can include any one of the following:-PDF documents (e.g., coupon or flyer)-video link-photos-link to your website, facebook, etsy page – any URL that you would like to share- other digital collateral that you provide
You can include whatever you would like to make this a fun and hopefully beneficial event for you. We will also provide you and guests detailed tip sheets for navigation.
We will publicize the Virtual May Fair as always, and encourage you to also share within your networks. The link is live now, and we plan to use the next month to build business/vendor booths. In our outreach, guests will be invited and encouraged to visit ANY TIME (max capacity of 22 guests at a time) leading up to the LIVE portion of the event (max capacity of 1000 guests), which will take place on Saturday May 8th, 4-8pm. During the live portion, a representative from your organization/business will be encouraged to log in and be available to chat with attendees. However, you will not be required to attend during this time if you are unable to do so, you can simply benefit from the free promotion without having to do anything else!
We hope that you will consider participating. Applications are due Sunday May 2nd, and will be reviewed in the order received. If you are selected to participate, you will receive e-mail notification along with further instructions.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
