With the FEST being just a few short weeks away, now is the perfect time to help spread the word about this incredible day of faith, fun, and family.   An awesome way your youth group, organization, or family and friends can help the fest is by having a Poster Party!  For a Poster Party, your group will receive FEST posters to distribute all around your local community to raise FEST awareness.  Further, if you snap a photo of every place you hang a poster, you will have the chance to win a free gift card!  You are CHOSEN to help the FEST and let your community know about this amazing event on August 3rd.  Please don’t hesitate to call our office at (440)-943-7662 to host your own Poster Party! Here is everything you need to know for your FEST Poster Party:

  1. 1. First and foremost, THANK YOU for helping make The FEST the best FEST yet! These poster parties are crucial to marketing The FEST to our area and we are so appreciative of your kindness, generosity, and hard work!
  2. 2. Major areas you want to hit include smaller businesses, civic areas (libraries, city hall, etc…), anywhere with a community bulletin board, and popular areas of town.
  3. 3. Do not go to the large, corporate stores, as they cannot put up posters without permission from their “big bosses.”
  4. 4. If you are not sure whether or not a store will put up a poster, give it a shot and ask! When you ask if a store can put up a poster, also ask if they have a community bulletin board that you can hang your poster on.
  5. 5. When hanging your posters, do NOT cover up any other posters that may be in the vicinity!
  6. 6. When asking if you can put up a poster in a business, be polite. If they allow you to do so, thank them for supporting The FEST. If they are not able to, thank them for their time. Remember, you are representing The FEST!
  7. 7. If you run into any problems, please call the FEST Office at (440) 943-7662.  Most importantly, HAVE A BLAST!!!!
  8. 8. Win a free gift card! Take a picture at every place you hang a FEST poster and tweet them with the hashtag: #PosterParty and tag the FEST at @the_fest for a chance to win a free gift card! Remember, the more the merrier!

We appreciate all the amazing effort from all who make this day such a success!  We can’t wait to have you join us on August 3rd!
