The organizers of stART on the Street announce their annual holiday spectacular at Union Station in Worcester!
Coming off the wildly successful stART on the Street festival this past September that drew close to 30,000 attendees to Park Avenue, the organizers are excited to host the 3rd Annual stART at the Station event. With over 120 local artists and crafters selling their handmade items, this show proves to be one-stop shopping for everyone’s holiday gift-giving needs!
Because of the successful festival a few months ago the number of applicants for the holiday event jumped by 25%, forcing organizers to seek out additional space in Union Station to host as many artists as possible. Co-director Tina Zlody explains, ”we had so many exceptional artists and crafters apply that we wanted to see how we could expand to accommodate them. We really wanted to stay in Union Station as it is sometimes the only reason all year people visit this building. And we are excited to have Luciano’s restaurant open for food and drinks during our event.”
Co-Director Sarah Brueck adds, “We hope by visiting Union Station for our event, attendees realize what an amazing space it is and how proud we are to be able to utilize it for our event.”
They have teamed with The Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission in utilizing their space on the 2nd floor overlooking the Great Hall to host an additional 40 vendors that might have otherwise been turned down for the event. Handicapped accessibility to the 2nd floor will be made possible by elevator.
stART on the Street will be selling their 2009 T-shirts as well as signature lime green shopping bags and other items as fundraisers for the group’s future events, including a new event tentatively scheduled for Spring 2010.
