Vendors and businesses simply don’t arrive at the annual Oswego Harborfest celebration and set up their concessions or information booths.
It takes months of logistical planning to organize Breitbeck, the Novelis Family Park at West Park, East Park as well as the river walk.
Harborfest Executive Director Doug Buske is heavily involved in a coordinated effort with Sponsorship Coordinator Carol Dillabough and Vendor Coordinator Cindy Loughrey as well as the Harborfest Logistics Committee to place all of the participants in a suitable location.
Buske said, “It takes a significant amount of time to plan locations for everyone participating. I would like to thank Mitchell’s Speedway Press and owners John and Kathy Henry for their generous contribution of the wall maps that greatly assist us in organizing what is one of the largest free music festivals in the nation.”
Mitchell’s Speedway Press owner Kathy Henry said, “Harborfest is a great community event and we are proud to be part of it. We would like to become more involved and hopefully these maps will make it easier for Harborfest officials to place the tremendous number of businesses, vendors, musical groups and organizations that are involved.”
These maps are placed on the walls of the Harborfest Conference Room and in the weeks ahead will start to be filled with all of the pieces that make one of the largest free music festivals in the nation such a success.
Mitchell’s Speedway Press provides a wide variety of services including full color printing, graphic design, newsletters, brochures, business cards, flyers, direct mail campaigns for businesses and organizations as well as being non-profit campaign specialists.
The local business possesses full color publisher printing, high speed copy service, folding, binding, invitations, color scanning and much more to provide for printing and publishing needs of businesses, organizations and individuals.
Planning continues, but there is still plenty of room for vendors, businesses or other groups that would like to become participants in Harborfest. There are still openings for businesses, organizations or individuals who would like to become involved with the event.
Sponsorship information is available by contacting Carol Dillabough at 342-7140 or firstname.lastname@example.org while individual memberships and vendors should call or email Cindy Loughrey at 342-7113 or email@example.com.
