Thank Goodness It's Spring
Spring is in the air and now is the time when our summer events are gearing up for a great season. At The Event Company, we are working on the following events in addition to dreaming up new events based on suggestions by downtown retailers/restaurants/businesses. It's a great time to be in downtown Kalamazoo.
Here's what we are working on - and if you want to help, just give us a quick email:
May 3 Art Hop & More which will feature the wonderful local artists of Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan. This special event will also feature a Chalk-It Up event and games around the corner as we all move to stay fit and engaged.
Art on the Mall - June 7 and 8 - we have just placed a majority of the artists and will post a map and information sheet soon.
Do-Dah Parade - June 8 - Ah, it's Do-Dah and it's about parodies, silly dessed people, and a pledge to being "over the top." But, a parade in June that is about laughter and goofiness, just makes this weekend that much more memorable.
Mixer on the Mall - every Wednesday, starting June 19. We are working on the band line-up and if you want to give it a listen - please let us know - we are taking votes currently.
Roof Sit - May 16-18 - this is an amazing event that raises money to support children who have been abused and neglected. There's so much to this event, tips for kids, auction, a dinner with Carrabba's Italian Grill, and two amazing people - Krista and Will from WKFR who sit on a roof.
Currently, we are looking for volunteers who would like to help plan the following events:
Community Advocates Ribfest - August 1-3 - This planning committee meets monthly at 6 p.m. and the date and time is yet to be established, but typically it's on the second Wednesday. The committee will select the entertainment, finalize the events, and help direct the volunteer recruitment. The whole process makes us hungry for those yummy ribs.
Community Healing Center Roof Sit - May 16-18 - this planning committee meets monthly and the dates are picked to meet eveyrone's schedule. The first one is Wednesday, Feburary 6 at 3:30 p.m. This group plans ALL the events, the Tips for Kids, Carrabba's Dinner/Auction, and the wonderful Glam Girl party on Saturday.
It's fun, you learn so much about event planning, management, leadership, and community engagement. If you are interested, give us a call or email. firstname.lastname@example.org or 269-388-2830.
