The eFest is a multicultural celebration of the “E is for Everyone” campaign. Our goal is to highlight the many different groups that make Evansville a great place to live and work. This festival will feature food and entertainment as well as booths from vendors and community organizations. Our vendors will come from a variety of countries and cultural backgrounds to offer everyone an experience that captures the richness that we all bring to our community.
The event is scheduled for October 13, on Main Street between First and Riverside. Beginning at 11AM, the event will immediately follow the YMCA of Evansville Half Marathon which ends at Main and Riverside. Over 2,000 runners participate in the Marathon, and with family, friends and volunteers our festival begins with over 4,000 finishing an event right next door. This event will be a joint effort by the Downtown Alliance and the Latino Chamber Alliance.
We want you and your group to join us!!!! We are seeking food and craft vendors and community groups who celebrate the diversity of Evansville through offering delicious tastes, products and gifts from across the globe. In addition to the proximity to the Marathon, we offer: a beer garden; live music throughout the day; a celebration of the “E is for Everyone’ campaign through ongoing reveals of new corporate and organization ‘E’ banners; marketing and media relations to bring more participants; and, an opportunity for your company, team or group to participate in the ‘E is for Everyone’ phenomenon.
