Call for Artists – Sixth Annual Family & Community EXPO
May 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - May 31, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The Windham Public School Family Liaisons will be hosting the Sixth Annual Family & Community EXPO at Jillson Square in Willimantic from 11:00 am-3:00 pm, Saturday, June 1, 2019. The Community EXPO has been an excellent way to share information with community residents and local businesses, as well as with numerous organizations. It is a fun day filled with music, student performances, networking opportunities and door prizes for families. In addition, there are many exciting activities for children such as crafts, face painting, the Touch a Truck event – and much more.
During the past five years, the EXPO has grown tremendously. During our first year we had a couple dozen families and fifteen vendors. Through the years we have grown to have over 900 attendees and more than 80 providers. On the day of the event, vendors are given a space which they can use to set up a table with information and/or items celebrating their business, agency, school, or program. There will also be a space where information on vendors that are not able to attend will be placed. Many vendors have generously donated door prizes to the event in the past and families are eager to see what this year brings!
