A message from the owners of Kennedy Faires, Rick and Chris Bauer. To our valued vendors: Chris and I understand the hardship all of you have been experiencing since March 2020. The Event Industry has been hit extremely hard for all of us, including all the sponsors, vendors and organizers like ourselves. Even with the uncertainty ahead of us, we still remain positive that we will eventually see the light at the end of this tunnel. We have and will remain persistent in working with state and local officials, to find ways to launch outdoor street festivals again. Be certain, that we will continue to pray for all of you and that we all will see greater and better days in the future. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our 2021 events Thank you for hanging in there with us!
