Grand Old 4th of July Street Fair Participants
We want to thank you for your support of our annual Grand 4th of July event on Bainbridge Island. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are forced to cancel this year’s celebration. We understand the financial hardship that the pandemic has caused your business and our organization as well.
If you have already paid for a 2020 booth, we would like to present you with some compensation options regarding your participation. Please let us know what you would like to do by email.
Here are some options:
- Book next year at this year’s prices — roll over your 2020 fee to the 2021 event.
- Donate your booth fee to the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber, unlike some non-profit organization and many businesses, is not eligible for recovery programs from the federal and state government and does not anticipate receiving any funding. We are relying solely on membership renewals and some compensation from our Department of Licensing agency to maintain a skeleton staff and operations. As you can image, membership renewals have been slow during this unprecedented time. Your donation would be most appreciated.
- Refund your 2020 Street Fair Booth Fee.
Again, please let us know which option you prefer. We look forward to producing the Grand Old 4th of July once again in 2021 when, hopefully, the coronavirus is behind us. We hope you to see you there!
