Are vendors allowed to set up at this event?
Not this time! Great American Carnivals will have food and drink available for purchase, though! Vendors interested in setting up at other City of Madisonville events are welcome to check out the Office of Community Development's page HERE to read about other vendor opportunities.
What is Madisonville Forward?
Madisonville Forward is the campaign to put YOUR restaurant tax dollars to work! 75% of the tax dollars go towards projects that promote tourism (for example, our new, super cool skatepark on Sugg St, the brand new mini golf course set to open in the summer of 2018, the new playground at Madisonville City Park, and other updates at places like the YAA fields and Elmer Kelley Stadium) and the other 25% of the dollars go towards events like this that promote tourism (think Friday Night Live, 4thFest, Kidapalooza, and even more in the months to come!).
