Vendors wanted for Owego Rotary’s 8th Annual Arts and Crafts Fair

The Owego Rotary Club is pleased to announce its 8th annual Arts and Crafts Fair will be held on Sunday, Nov. 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Owego Elks Lodge located at 223 Front St. in Owego, N.Y. This event is free and open to the public, just in time for the Holiday Season, and they look forward to many artists and craft persons as vendors to offer their work for sale.

They invite all artists and crafts persons as well as vendors of farm goods and homemade food to participate in this year’s Fair. Spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis, so an early response will ensure your reserved space and your name is included in our pre-event publicity.

Contact Nancy Della Pia at (607) 761-7300 or email to for an application or stop by the following shops in Owego: Black Cat Gallery, Gallery Forty-One, River Row Books, or the Tioga County Council on the Arts in Owego.

The Fair Committee will use appropriate media to advertise the event, including ads, posters, newspaper articles, lawn signs and social media.

As in years past, all proceeds from this event will be donated to the Rotary Polio Plus Campaign. Every child deserves the right to walk, run, and play without fear of paralysis. Although Polio is largely unknown in the industrialized nations, it is a disease that still robs children of that right in other parts of the world. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is committed to achieving a polio-free world.

Rotary is a spearheading partner in the GPEI along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has invested in the eradication of polio and is working closely with the GPEI. The goal of the initiative is the global certification of polio eradication. Indeed the end of polio is in sight.
