The Town of Hempstead is inviting Long Island’s food, craft, novelty and memorabilia vendors to join the fun on Family Festival Weekend this September 24th and 25th at lovely Lido Beach Town Park. Vendor applications are currently being accepted by the Department of Parks and Recreation. Interested vendors are asked to call (516) 292-9000, ext. 7480 for all Family Festival information.
“Attracting over 30,000 weekend visitors, the Town of Hempstead Family Festival by the Sea is one of Long Island’s most popular autumn celebrations,” commented Supervisor Anthony J. Santino. “Set along the beautiful Atlantic shore line in Lido Beach, the 2016 Family Festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 from 11 am to 6:30 pm.”
The festival features great food, live concerts, clam and wing eating contests, sand castle and biathlon competitions, exciting children’s shows, pony rides, petting zoo, tennis clinics and talented circus performers.
It makes sense for vendors to be part of the excitement on September 24 and 25 as the town hosts the 34th Annual Family Festival by the Sea. The “Welcome Mat” is out for all food, craft, novelty and memorabilia vendors looking to set sale for good times and good fortune at beautiful Lido Beach Town Park.
