City accepting exhibitors for Suwanee Day 2011

SUWANEE -- The city of Suwanee is accepting applications for exhibitors during its annual Suwanee Day festivities.

The festival -- named a top-20 event for September 2011 by the Southeast Tourism Society -- needs fine artists, talented crafts people and food vendors for the event to be held on Sept. 17.

Applications are available at www.suwaneeday.com.

"We had the busiest day we have ever had running our little business," Don and Beth Voit of Dandy Cotton Candy said of last year's festival. "We had so much fun interacting with the crowd and being part of the event."

Each year, about 40,000 people visit Town Center Park during Suwanee Day to enjoy shopping, crafts, children's activities and on-stage entertainment.

The deadline for exhibitor applications is June 1.
