Dear New Albany First members and supporters,
As you may already know, on September 22, 2012 New Albany First will hold its first annual Indiefest in the 400 block of East Bank Street. Indiefest will feature local artists exhibiting original work, food from local restaurants, local craft beer and local bands.
All proceeds from the event will be used by New Albany First to continue our mission of supporting and promoting independent local businesses, and educating the public on the importance of ‘keeping it local’ by buying from independent businesses in New Albany and Floyd County.
Since this is an entertainment venue, some business members may not decide to exhibit, but New Albany First will still provide a table to distribute material from your organization. Respond to this email if you have literature to display and a New Albany First member will pick it up for you and display it at the Indiefest.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the New Albany Indiefest, 2-10 pm, on Saturday, September 22.
Note that two applications are available for participants: An application for artists interested in exhibiting, and an application for any local, independent business that wishes to promote itself at the event. Please consider participating, and forward applications to anyone you think may be interested. To get Word docs of these applications, ask here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kate Caufield, President
