Craft, commercial and food vendors sought for annual Summer in the City

Published 6:15pm Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Applications for craft, community and business vendor booth space for Dowagiac’s oldest and largest summertime event, Summer in the City, are now available by contacting the Greater Dowagiac Chamber of Commerce at (269) 782-8212.

Headquartered in the central business district, Summer in the City features a new and roomier format for the expanded even, July 24-27.

According to Vickie Phillipson, Chamber of Commerce & DDA program director, rather than three days of sidewalk sales, there will be just two with the festival opening Thursday evening with special entertainment. “Sidewalk sales, featuring the booths of commercial, non-profit and food vendors, along with our expanded line-up of festival events, runs Friday and Saturday. Also new this year, on Sunday, ACTION will present a community worship service and picnic.”

The Chamber’s oldest and largest summertime festival is truly a family-oriented event featuring 50 hours of entertainment and action sports, such as BMX demos and Steve’s Run.

Registration is being taken for commercial, non-profit and food vendor booth space, which measures approximately 10-feet. Phillipson said this is a great opportunity for businesses and community organizations to take center stage, as they network with the community they serve.  Booth space is $40 for the two-day sidewalk sale.

Applications are available by calling (269) 782.8212 or by e-mail at
