The 2016 Hendricks County Community Youth Fair that They're Our Kids cohosted with Macaroni Kid - Hendricks is in the books!
A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to all 55 of our vendors and all 1,542 people who visited the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex to experience the Youth Fair yesterday! Meghan Stritar of Macaroni Kid - Hendricks and I had no way of predicting how many people would attend, and we are both thrilled by how many folks turned out, even in the frigid temperatures!
As with any event that I help plan and execute, I'm making notes on things that worked well and things that could use improvement for next year. (Without hesitation, Meghan and I agree that there will definitely be a next year!) But I need more feedback than what I experienced first-hand.
So here is a request for feedback -- in the form of two quick and easy polls and a request for a comment -- from all Villagers who attended the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair on Feb. 13.
I loved holding this year's event at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex! The folks who work there were absolutely outstanding in helping us set up, advertise, execute and tear down. Many thanks to all of those great people -- and I highly recommend investigating the 4-H Fairgrounds as a venue for your next event!
So vendors and visitors, what did you think of the venue?
How Did You Hear About the Youth Fair?
Meghan and I blanket-bombed the community with advertisements about this year's Hendricks County Community Youth Fair. We know that a whole bunch of our vendors shared the event on their social media pages, websites, calendars and newletters, too, which was outstanding!
So how did you hear about the Youth Fair?
Meghan and I both wanted a wide variety of vendors at the Youth Fair. Kids have a wide variety of interests, and parents have a wide variety of needs, so we targeted a broad spectrum of vendors this year.
Of course, not every vendor that we invited was able to attend, but trust us: we harassed A LOT of people over the past several months to get them there!
Villagers, what did you think of the assortment of vendors who were there? Who was your favorite vendor, demonstration and/or activity? Was there a vendor or a topic that you wanted to see that we didn't have there?
Please add a comment to give us your feedback on the vendors and anything else you'd like us to know! Share this post with all of your friends who attended, and have them give us their feedback, too! The more we know, the better we can make the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair in 2017!
Thank you, Villagers, for your feedback and for making our event such a success!
