Queen Creek seeking vendors for signature events

While the summer heat is in full swing, the town is preparing for a lineup of fall events. With several family-friendly events, businesses and organizations are invited to participate in the fun by hosting a vendor booth.

At last year’s Founders Day event, attendees could choose which pig they believe would win a race. (Special to the Independent/Town of Queen Creek)

Founders’ Day, celebrating the town’s heritage and anniversary, will be held 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, and Trunk or Treat will be held 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20.

Vendor fees vary from $100 to $200 based on booth type; a discount is available for businesses and organizations that register for Founders’ Day, Trunk or Treat and Spring into QC (held in March 2019) as a package.

All booth spaces are 10 feet by 10 feet; vendors are responsible for their own supplies and equipment. Information regarding vendor fees and applications are available online at QueenCreek.org/SpecialEvents. The deadline for Founders’ Day vendors is Aug. 16 and the deadline for Trunk or Treat vendors is Sept. 13; late fees apply if submitted after the deadline.

Founders’ Day will be held at Founders’ Park at 22407 S. Ellsworth Road. This popular home-town event will include fun activities, great food, music, entertainment, Battle of the Bags, and the exciting Battle of the Badges.

Trunk or Treat provides a safe and unique way for families to enjoy an inexpensive evening of Halloween fun in a festival atmosphere. Trunk or Treat will be held in Town Center, on Ellsworth Road, north of Ocotillo Road. Along with other Halloween attractions, children trick‐or-treat by going from car trunk to car trunk on “Trunk or Treat Street” to get their bags filled with goodies.
