Children First, a local nonprofit organization, is proud to partner with several community leaders and organizations to host the third annual East Bakersfield Festival on Saturday, June 8, 2019, from 11am to 4pm at Jefferson Park. The purpose of the event is to bring East Bakersfield residents together for a day of community building through food, music, dancing, and fun. The event, free and open to the entire family, will also include a strong emphasis on health and wellness education.
Last year, we hosted over 1,000 people at Jefferson Park for our second annual East Bakersfield celebration. This year, we expect to increase turnout throughout the day with a free concert featuring Los Feliz, local mariachi bands, and other local groups.
Booths: Booth Spaces should be 12 X 12 feet. Participants must provide their own equipment, including tables and chairs. We expect over 1,000 attendees. All participants are encouraged to decorate their booths to celebrate East Bakersfield. Setup-begins at 8 am. Electrical outlets are limited. Please indicate your need for electrical power on application. All vendor booths are free; selling items is prohibited.
