"Welcome all to the annual Advent Oktoberfest and the first Annual Art Festival!
This event will be held on Saturday September 29, 2012 from 11:00 - 3:00. There will be traditional Oktoberfest food and drinks available for purchase, and live music throughout the event by local bands and artists, as well as games, bounce houses, and face painting for the kids. This will be held at the Advent Lutheran Church campus at 7550 N Wickham Road, Melbourne, FL 32940.
It will be open for setup beginning at 8:00AM the day of the event. Please bring your own tents/canopies/booth setup equipment, etc. Each space will be 10x10, and there is a $20 registration fee for each booth. You will set up on the grass and the people attending will have a nice broad concrete boulevard/sidewalk to stroll along to view your great works of art. They will also be asking for a 5% donation to the church on all artwork sold to support Advent's outreach and ministry to the community.
Check in will be in the main parking lot. Once checked in, you will receive your assigned space, and you may drive your vehicle to the display area to set up. After setup, park in the remote parking lot furthest from the church. Please do not hunt up your space and start unloading before you check in.
You may bring wire grids, false walls, portable walls, hollow doors hinged together or other apparatus on which to hang your art. Each space will be marked by a blue tape outline. Please don't extend beyond your space unless you work it out with your neighbors. Electricity will NOT be available at the booths.
There will be volunteers around who will offer to give you a break if you need one. The food will be available a la carte outside, or as a full meal inside. There are bathrooms near the display area. Smoking in designated areas only.
There are a limited number of booths for this event, so please sign-up early. To be a part of this great family event, please respond with your commitment to participate and the $20 registration fee to Carol Stanton at Advent Lutheran by 8/31/2012.
