15th Annual Marpole Summerfest
JUN 2015 — It’s time to celebrate summer!
The 15th Annual Marpole Summerfest event will take place on Saturday, July 18th, from 11 AM to 3 PM, along Granville Street between 63rd and 71st Avenues.
Sidewalk sales and merchant promotions, musicians and balloon artists, face painters and juggling shows, on-street chalk murals, and a classic car Show ‘n Shine - all of this adds up to a fun-filled, family-oriented community celebration!
Merchants who have taken advantage of the Association’s sponsorship and coordination of this event in the past have increased both their sales and customer counts.
For many participating merchants, Marpole Summerfest has become one of the busiest sales days of the entire year.
No matter what kind of business you run or service you provide, you CAN participate in Summerfest and market your business to the community.
1. Designate 1 key item as your “Summerfest Special” - to bring people into your business.
This can be a food item, a product or special service that your business provides.
If you are in the food service business, please have your set-up complete and food ready to eat by 11 AM. People arrive hungry!
2. Take it to the street. Set up a table in front of your store with sale merchandise and/or product or food samples
3. Advertise your “Summerfest Special” in the Vancouver Courier. Spread the word beyond your store and into the homes of Vancouver’s west side neighbourhoods.
We will publish the Summerfest event schedule in the Courier newspaper, and online.
4. Print flyers to put inside customer shopping bags in the weeks prior to July 18th.
Advertise your Summerfest specials; maybe even include a coupon to reward them for their patronage - to be used after July 18th.
The key to your success with Marpole Summerfest is PARTICIPATION.
Please call Claudia @ 604-418-8232 for assistance, ideas, and more event details.
