On Sunday October 28, 2018 we’re celebrating the end of harvest and welcoming the winter solstice with an otherwordly Samhain themed market! At this time, we’re looking for all creative crafters, makers of food, art, crafts, jewelry, pottery, etc. to apply to be a vendor.
As with every market, we are expecting 3,000+ visitors, a full day of free fun activities, live music, and festive food & drinks, in the beautiful Greenpoint Loft.
This year, accepted Fall Market vendors will have the option to reserve a space in this year’s Holiday Market too!
NOTE: Vendor spaces are reserved for local independent makers and small businesses. If you don’t meet this criteria, email [email protected] to learn about sponsorship opportunities and help support local!
November 11th is always a day to celebrate, and Greenpoint’s PS 31 (75 Meserole Avenue) marked the day with a Fall Festival to benefit the PTA. The school is a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, and the Festival helped PS 31’s PTA raise funds to support excellent enrichment opportunities for students, including arts and chess.
Parents, teachers, alumni and community businesses all contributed to the festivities, which included pony rides, crafts, cotton candy, balloons, face painting, a Bounce House and a bake sale. Local merchants like the Meatball Shop (170 Bedford Avenue) donated raffle prizes. All proceeds from the event went directly to the PTA. In a press release Sarah Sanders, PTA Co-President, thanked the Greenpoint community for an excellent turnout and a fabulous Festival.“This was a very successful community event that brought people together on a freezing day to help our school,” she said. “It couldn’t have been done without the wonderful volunteers, who included teachers, parents, and alumni.”
