BLOCK PARTY Indie Craft show, Invitation to apply

Greetings everyone!

We hope this email finds everyone happy, creative, and in the Indie Craft Show spirit!
The Handmade Brigade has been hard at work planning what is going to be our biggest event yet.....

BLOCK PARTY Indie Craft Show
Saturday July 10th
11:00 am to 5:00 pm
At the Fiesta Marketplace in Downtown Santa Ana, on Spurgeon at 3rd street.

The Details:
We are partnering with the many local businesses as well as the city to make this event huge!
Expect things like awesome indie craft vendors (duh), a Kogi Truck, food booths, live music, possibly even live dancing, live art and performances!
There will be table and 10x10 canopy booths available and information on pricing for these listed in the application.

The Location:
The place is a beautiful outdoor plaza on Spurgeon street, between 3rd and 4th street, in the heart of the cultural center of Downtown Santa Ana. Here's a little information about the place from the developers:
"Fiesta Marketplace is about to begin on a multimillion dollar redevelopment project with the goal of freshening up and modernizing the property. The project will include refacing all of the building facades and redoing the outdoor promenade to make it more welcoming and pedestrian friendly. The goal will also be to broaden the appeal of the existing retailers as well as bring in some new ones that focus more on food and entertainment. Plans are currently underway to bring the Yost Theater back to life as a independent music venue with attached restaurant, lounge, and nightclub. The goal of these improvements is to not only keep the existing customer base but to broaden the appeal to a younger, hipper, and urban demographic."
