We would like to invite your participation in this year's Local Living Festival ~A Celebration of Resourceful Living Skills~ to be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the Village Green in the center of downtown Canton, NY.
This event is a great opportunity to showcase your work, hobbies and interests, or to pass on invaluable skills to an expected audience of 1,200 to 2,000 people.
If you decide to formally share your skills with attendees in a 45 minute workshop or by doing three demonstrations during the day, your booth space is free! (Always free or low cost for small community groups, of course.)
