Scheduled for April 6, 2013, “EnergyFest: Explore The Corridor” is the district’s inaugural street festival that celebrates our 10th anniversary. This exciting event will showcase our businesses and our active lifestyle and show residents who live in the district, as well as visitors, what it’s like to live in the Energy Corridor. To plan and produce the first ever “EnergyFest”, the Energy Corridor District selected Gray & Associates Events, an event-planning firm located in the Energy Corridor. This free, open to the public event will feature a full day of fun activities, great food and good times.
For companies located in the Energy Corridor, EnergyFest 2013 offers a unique opportunity to promote their business at expo tables or tents plus much more! A variety of levels of involvement are available for businesses that range from an exhibitor booth for $300 to the title festival sponsorship position for $10,000. Anything raised over our $50,000 event budget will be donated directly to neighborhood schools in the Energy Corridor.
In addition to an “EnergyFest” Kick-off Bike, Hike & Stroll event, attendees will enjoy the different activity zones offered:
