Booth registrations are $25 dollars for a 12×12 space, electricity not available. All food vendor spaces cost $35 dollars and come with electricity. Food vendors are requested to stay open during the day time events as well as the concert at night.

The Center for Government and Community Development is hosting a public forum. This forum will be about the communities’ economic trends, retail trade, and opportunities for growth. “Taking a look at a community’s economic snapshot is an ideal way to determine ways to improve business and downtown development,” said GCD Director Sumner Davis. “Residents attending the meetings will have opportunities to participate and we will hand out a short survey to determine where local citizens shop for goods and services and why.”
The event will be held for both Coffeeville and Water Valley. Coffeeville’s forum will be held on Monday, October 13th at 6 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose building. Water Valley’s forum will be held on Tuesday, October 14th at the Water Valley courthouse.
Come join us for an evening of education and improvement of our communities. Everyone is invited!
