It is my pleasure to announce the New Castle Fireworks Festival and Freedom Fair, July 14, 2018 hosted by DON. As the third largest employer in Lawrence County, DON is excited for the opportunity to give back to the community while simultaneously raising awareness of the many barriers that people with disabilities battle on a constant basis.
The event will take place in the center of our business district, along East Washington Street, for one day only. Since its beginning, the festival has been a family oriented event and our goal is to continue the work of the past while growing the event for the future. This event annually draws over 30,000 people from Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Kentucky and Maryland. It is our intention to add more room and growth to this festival.
An application and contract should be completed, signed, and returned to the address below as soon as possible. Keep in mind vendors may sell only items approved in advance by the committee. Food vendors will receive a health inspection form paid to the City of New Castle Health Department. All other vendors will receive a letter from the City of New Castle on transient vendor sales and may contact the Health Officer to determine eligibility.
A certificate of liability insurance must accompany the contract at a minimum of $1,000,000. If for some reason your contract is denied, you will be contacted immediately. Otherwise, you will receive your placement and set up time closer to the event.
We welcome your participation in the 2018 Fireworks Festival & Freedom Fair.
