Buy Local Fair
Sunday, May 21, 12n-6pm
Louisville Water Tower Park
This local favorite will include more than 200 booths from a variety of local businesses, artists and craftspeople, community organizations, and farmers, as well as live music, Trend Appliances cooking competition, craft cocktail competition, food and drink vendors, ValuMarket craft beer tent, Cox’s Back Porch area for the grownups and a children’s area as well. Presented by the Louisville Water Company, the event also gets major support from Amish Hills Furniture and Louisville Metro Council.
“It’s a great feeling to hear from our visitors and vendors about how much they love the Buy Local Fair,” says Jennifer Rubenstein, Director of the Louisville Independent Business Alliance. “We put this event on with our member businesses as the focal point, and the public really digs it. There’s such a variety of local independent businesses that are unique and fun – and that makes a community impact by keeping more dollars circulating locally!”
Attendees may not have the local economy on their mind when they’re buying the perfect birthday gift, or chowing on their favorite local burger, but the Louisville Local Impact Study shows that the money spent will circulate locally over 3 times more than when spent at a chain. And that’s the beauty of the Buy Local Fair – building community while having a remarkable experience.
Admission to the Buy Local Fair is free and parking is $5 per vehicle (or free for bicycle parking). Visit www.keeplouisvilleweird.com/buylocalfair for more info.
