Queen Creek Holiday Festival & Parade looks for sponsors, volunteers

Posted

The Queen Creek Holiday Festival & Parade will take place 2-7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, in the heart of downtown.

Parade organizers are looking for sponsors and volunteers for the event. The theme is “Christmas in Candyland."

This year’s Holiday Festival & Parade is presented by Banner Ironwood Medical Center. In addition, Hunter Contracting and the town of Queen Creek are helping to sponsor the event.

Now in its 39th year, the annual event benefits the Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis Club of Queen Creek. The highlight of the family-friendly festival is the parade, which will feature more than 90 entries ranging from marching bands and dance troupes to floats and Santa Claus.

The parade will start at 3:30 p.m. and head north on Ellsworth Road, ending at the Recreation Annex/Library. More than 10,000 guests are expected to attend. Those attendees also will enjoy carnival rides, bounce houses, arts and crafts, live music, food, a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and photos with Santa.

There are a number of ways the public can get involved with the festival, including being a vendor or sponsor. Businesses and organizations wishing to promote  or sell goods or services can apply to reserve a commercial vendor booth space. Booth spaces are 10 feet by 10 feet.

Past commercial vendors have featured jewelry, candles, arts and crafts, purses, T-shirts, hats and decor. Applications are now being accepted, early-bird specials are $90 and end on Oct. 29.

Food vendor applications are now being accepted. Local eateries, food trucks and culinary vendors of all types are welcome to submit an application. The cost to participate is $250.

This is an all-day event, and there is a need of more than 100 adult volunteers to assist in making sure the event is safe and successful. Volunteers are needed for three- to four-hour time slots between 11 a.m.-9 p.m.

For companies there are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available. For vendor applications, sponsorship information and volunteer sign-ups visit QueenCreekParade.org.
