Call for Artist Vendors -2009 Sing Tao Street Fair in Redwood City

The City of Redwood City has asked Art on the Square to provide an art component to the Sing Tao Street Fair. We will have close to 50 spaces along Broadway. Other vendors will be mainly Asian owned businesses; massage, herbs, home repair companies, non-profit groups, and others. Itís a great opportunity to reach a new demographic.

Sing Tao is a local Chinese language newspaper. Their Expo celebrating Asian culture has previously been held at the San Mateo Expo Center, and typically draws 30,000 attendees who pay an entrance and parking fee. Redwood City successfully partnered with Sing Tao in August for the Olympic Telecast at Courthouse Square, attended by over 4,000 people. Sing Tao decided they would like to hold Sing Tao as a street fair and found working with the City of Redwood City to be very easy. In 2009 the event will be held on Broadway in downtown Redwood City and is expected to draw large crowds, given its history of strong community support, and the fact that itís now free and close to a CalTrain station.

Sing Tao Street Fair application will be available next week. Please e-mail ArtontheSquare@sbcglobal.net if you're interested in getting it. Please note that this is a separate application from our summer Art on the Square shows. Application packets must be postmarked no later than 3/20/09.
