New Lawrenceville accepting vendor applications for festival

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Valentine's Day hasn't been marked off of the calendar yet and the nonprofit group New Lawrenceville is already working on its annual Spring Green Festival in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. The organization is now accepting applications for vendors, sponsors, advertisers and volunteers for the March 17 festival.

Last year, the event attracted more than 3,000 visitors in a single day, which was a Thursday. Organizers anticipate more than double the attendance this year because they are holding the festival on a Saturday and are adding a 5K run to the list of activities. There is also a free concert held after the festival which ends at 5 p.m.

New Lawrenceville is raising money for three charities with this event, which include The Lawrenceville Police Departments Benevolent Fund, The Special Needs of Gwinnett and Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation. The money will come from some of the funds raised by purchasing booths, various sponsorship levels, advertising space or running in the 5K.

For more information about the vendor, sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, visit newlawrenceville.com or contact Wendy Ryoul at wendy@solutionsmarketingllc.com or 678-469-5667.

New Lawrenceville is a nonprofit organization of volunteers in the city of Lawrenceville dedicated to "bringing community together and never using tax payers' dollars for promoting the city of Lawrenceville."
