Save the Date - November 15 is a new twist on an Oakhill Favorite - GLOBAL CELEBRATION
The momentum and energy our Global Celebration event generated in May encouraged us to take things a step further with this year's plans and organize an entirely 'new and improved' event!
Picture all of the cool family/friend tables from last year (and hopefully more) enhanced with tables and booths sponsored by individuals/groups from the Metro area (or beyond) selling their handmade gifts, products, and food. A true Global Celebration! Now imagine us taking another step and opening this to the community to attend as well. Do you have goosebumps yet? We do!
We would not be able to take our event to the next level without the support of our Oakhill families and friends and hope you will consider hosting a table at our new event THIS FALL.
The Global Celebration will take place on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm. Set up may begin at 2:30 pm and must be complete by 3:30 pm. We will provide the tables for our Oakhill friends/families (until we run out), and electrical outlets (if needed), backdrops, etc as we have in the past - you only need to bring yourself, your passion for your culture/traditions/
We have already received a strong level of interest from a few groups that participated in the Swope Park Ethnic Festival, the KC Latin Art Festival, a few Oakhill families, and even the Russian Commission of Kansas City! This is very exciting. These booths will feature foods, crafts, art and other items for sample or for sale (yes, this is new). We are very excited!
Please consider participating in this year's event. If interested, please complete the form attached to this link, and a member of the Global Celebration committee will reach out to you.
Please return this form by Friday, November 1.
We are definitely looking for more contacts and groups to participate and have attached the "Looking for Vendors" flier for your convenience to distribute or share.
Please note that the fun doesn't end when the market closes. Students may reserve a spot to participate in a Kid's Club activity while adults may purchase tickets to the Global Celebration After Hours - A Taste Around the World . This will take place after our event closes for the evening. This exciting event will feature wine and beer from around the world. More details will be shared soon.
We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact Sra. WalkerHolmes or Mrs. Crouse with any questions you may have regarding the Global Celebration. Thank you again for all of your support and we hope you're as excited as we are to take this to the next step!
