Heritage Days Date Set!

Vendors and Community Organizations invited to participate in Heritage Days

Momence will celebrate its third annual Heritage Day Saturday June 8, 2019 from noon to midnight.  We are inviting anyone interested in being a vendor to contact us or visit our website at www.momenceheritageday.org to download a printable registration form. There is no charge to be a street vendor or participating community organization for this historic festival, but you do need to complete the form and send it in.

If you wish to be an outside street vendor on East Washington Street, you will need to supply your own canopy, table, chairs, and sign, and there is no electrical hookup.  The sites are about 8 x 8 and are allocated on a first-registered, first-served basis.  If you prefer to be inside, we can locate you in our Heritage Hall facility (City hall) with a smaller space, roughly 6 x 6.  We can provide tables and chairs for you inside, but there is no electrical hookup available.  Please indicate your preference on the registration form.  

Because the focus of the Momence Heritage Foundation is to provide education about Momence history, traditions and culture, we are particularly interested in vendors who have an historic trade or product, such as candle makers, seamstresses, lace tatters, bee keepers and honey, soap making, trades specific to Momence, farming, river life, hunting and trapping, etc.  If you also can provide a demonstration, please contact us as we may want to include you in our entertainment lineup for the day.  Contact information is available on the registration forms online.  

Community organizations also are highly encouraged to have a booth space to sell merchandise, memberships and offer information about your group to increase the community’s knowledge of your activities and how residents may become involved.  Like vendors, if you are outside on East Washington Street, you must supply your own table, canopies (no tents allowed as they will block views of our storefronts) chairs and signs.  Inside Heritage Hall, we can help supply tables and chairs.  Please use the same registration form as the vendors online at momenceheritageday.org.

Save the date for free fun for the entire family all day: Saturday, June 8, 2019, noon to 5:30 for most events, 7 to 11 p.m. for our historic first Momence Heritage Day Street Dance!
