K104.7's Cupcake Festival 2017 Comes To Beacon, NY

This year's Annual Cupcake Festival, usually held in Fishkill, is coming to Beacon, NY on May 6th, with a rain date of May 7th, 2017. We are pleased to work with with K104.7 and the City of Beacon on this event. Cupcakes galore and a judging booth will be set up on Main Street between the Dummy Light and Rt. 52. The Cupcake Festival is accepting vendors, and inquires can be made directly to K104.7 by emailing sam@pamal.com.

This event will be held on the East End between Chase Bank and The Dummy Light.  We want all Beacon Businesses to benefit from this event so K104 is slashing the vendor fee in half for any Beacon Business!  You will receive your business name on the flyer and a 15 x 15 spot on the street.  You do not need to be a food seller to be a vendor, all businesses are welcomed!  If your interested in participating please contact K104 here.  Space is limited!

The form to enter the cupcake contest can be found here.

For more information on the Cupcake Festival, see A Little Beacon Blog's article here.
