October 6th is just a month away and 2012 is going to be a great year for the Martinsville Uptown Oktoberfest! The event will run from 11am till 4pm, so come early to be sure you have an opportunity to see everything. The German band and craft beer garden will be back, as well as the kids' activities, petting zoo, lots to eat, a variety of crafts, and a day of music at the Big Chair stage.
Oktoberfest 2011 brought 156 vendors and 10,000 attendees into uptown, and with our expanded marketing, 2012 promises to be even bigger. Flyers will be handed out at the event with a map on one side and a list of performance times and locations on the other.
If you are interested in being a vendor but have not registered, now is the time! Vendor spaces are $15, with a discounted rate of $10 for 501c3 nonprofits. There are only 15 days left to get a guaranteed space. After September 14th, vendor booths will only be permitted if space is available, and there is a late registration fee, so get your application in now.
