Pelham Chamber of Commerce President Clayton Bushong visited a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of the Pelhams and encouraged participation in the Sept 7 Wolfs Walk street festival.
The Wolfs Walk committee, co-chaired by Clayton Bushong and Amy Cole, is accepting vendor applications and sponsorships. Vendors will be assigned to a 5’ x 15’ spot along Wolfs Lane and provided with a 6’ table. Tents and electricity will NOT be provided but can be brought in by participants at their own expense. For pricing and more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. All applicants are subject to approval by the Wolfs Walk committee.
The second annual Wolfs Walk street festival on Saturday, September 7th will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The event will feature live music, artisanal food and drink, a highly curated selection of artists, artisans, crafters, and retailers as well as a selection of non-profit organizations who will be on-hand to share information about their work and missions.
Wolfs Walk will take place on Wolfs Lane between Second Street and Boulevard. Local live musicians including Andrew Cole & the Bravo Hops (acoleandthehops.com), Warren Banholzer and Friends, and Bridges and Powerlines (www.bridgesandpowerlines.com) will once again take to the Wolfs Walk stage throughout the evening and the popular Pelham Larks will kick-off the music while serenading guests up and down the street. The festival will also coincide with The Picture House Regional Film Center’s (www.thepicturehouse.org) 5th Annual Westchester International Film Festival (WICFF) which will take place at their historic theater located at 175 Wolfs Lane (at the corner of Second Street).
“When we came up with the idea of a new kind of street experience like Wolfs Walk, it was our goal to create a public event highlighting all the diverse restaurants and food purveyors, artists, designers, and retailers, musicians and non-profits that make our region unique with the hope that it would become an annual tradition,” said Clayton Bushong, President of the Pelham Chamber of Commerce. “The overwhelming positive response to our first Wolfs Walk – even in bad weather – signaled to us that it was something that we absolutely would continue to offer the community," Bushong continued. “We are so grateful for all of our corporate sponsors including our lead sponsor Meridian Risk Management/Meridian Realty Consultants, and our Key Sponsors Ann C Kossowan DDS, Capital Realty NY, The Loft Recording Studios, and Dahlia Gardens, who understand the importance of community-building events like Wolfs Walk.”
With Mr. Bushong and Ms. Cole at the Rotary meeting were three interns from Pelham Together assisting the Chamber of Commerce for three weeks this summer: Nick Caruso, Caroline Garufi and Sarita Nagesar.
