The Byron Township Parks & Recreation Department is excited to announce the return of the Byron Rec Women’s Expo & Craft Show on Saturday, May 6, 2017. The Expo is entering its fifth year and will be held at the Byron Township Community Center, located inside Whistlestop Park at 2120 76th Street SW, Byron Center, MI. This great FREE event is open to everyone to attend, and features more than 70 different vendors!
Last year we sold out on vendor space quickly, and this year was no different. Spaces were filled within several weeks of opening up the registration. We accept crafters, bakers, makers, and direct sales vendors at this show. Spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, plus this year we tightened our guidelines for acceptable business types. We now require all vendors this year to not only be relevant, but to have products to sell in person, not just offer items for mail order. We love instant gratification!
Vendors will be selling items such as jewelry, handmade items, crafts, lotions, candles, accessories, souvenirs, and an array of other items that are sure to make great Mother’s Day gifts! Many vendors are from Byron Center, Grand Rapids, and surrounding suburbs.
The show time is 9am-2pm on Saturday, May 6. The event is free to attend and convenient parking is located in the Community Center parking lot. The vendors will be set up in the gymnasium and multi-purpose rooms on the first level; signs will be placed to guide visitors inside of the Community Center.
Leading up to the event, we will post often on the Facebook page about the vendors at our show, photos, and more. We will also include giveaways and contests the weeks leading up to the show. During the show we have a raffle (free to enter) and will open up our kitchen as a concession stand.
