Booth space is available for the first Art in the Alley festival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 9, in downtown Bolivar sponsored by the Downtown Bolivar Association.
Artwork will be displayed in the alleys on the west and east sides of the Bolivar square.
Businesses and organizations from throughout Polk County — not just downtown Bolivar — are encouraged to set up booths in the parking lots behind the two alleys, with an emphasis on kids’ activities behind the west alley and more sophisticated activities behind the east alley.
Set up begins at 7 a.m. Saturday, May 9. Cost is $25 for a 10x10 booth and $30 for a 10x10 booth with electricity, though the number of booths with electricity are extremely limited. Deadline is Friday, May 1. Booth space is free with a sponsorship or if the booth will have a free “make-and-take” craft for children. Arts and crafts items sold at the event must be homemade.
To reserve a booth, contact Susan Sparks at (417) 770-1989.
The DBA is producing the event that coincides with the semi-annual Bolivar Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast and a loft walk that will feature loft apartments in downtown Bolivar.
