World of Montgomery Festival Seeks Food and Craft Vendors, Exhibitors

The World of Montgomery Festival is seeking exhibitors and craft vendors for this year’s event on Sunday, October 16.  The festival, which celebrates the cultural and ethnic diversity of Montgomery County, will take place from noon to 5 p.m. at the Wheaton Triangle located at Grandview Ave. and Reedie Dr. in downtown Wheaton.
This free, outdoor event will feature music and dance performances, international food and craft vendors and a health fair.  The International Village, a hands-on cultural education area for families and children, will showcase performances, demonstrations and exhibits related to the County’s diverse array of cultural and ethnic communities.  The festival will also serve as the kick-off event for Montgomery County Community Service Week, with volunteer opportunities available on event day and throughout the week.
Applications for food and craft vendors are now being accepted, with preference given to vendors who are both unique and relevant to the diverse theme of the festival.  Limited exhibitor space is also available for nonprofit organizations and Montgomery County agencies.
