Craft Vendors Sought for North Bend State Park May Events - 2012
Art and craft persons looking for a venue to showcase their work are invited to consider two opportunities at North Bend State Park in May.
The park offers a rural setting and attracts a nice crowd for events.
“Pottery, sewing, jewelry, woodworking and those types of items are popular with visitors to the park for special weekends,” said Ken Zebo, activities coordinator at North Bend State Park.
Two events in May traditionally feature vendors with personally made arts and craft items: Engines and Wheels May 05 and Bluegrass Festival, May 11-12, 2012. “At these events, the vendor and the crafter or artist is one and the same,” Zebo said.
North Bend State Park is located near Cairo and Harrisville.
It is a year-round vacation park with lodge and restaurant, cabins, campgrounds, hiking and biking trails, lake and fishing, and special events.
Zebo organizes special weekends and nature-based activities that are family oriented.
Artisans interested in being part of Engines & Wheels or Bluegrass Festival weekends should contact Ken Zebo at 304.643.2931 to make arrangements to be a vendor at either weekend.
