Green Block Party – Calling all vendors

June 5, 2011

Test Drive Your Green City! GreenHomeNYC is calling for new and returning vendors to join the second annual The New New York Block Party, this year in Williamburg. We expect over 3,000 visitors, 70 vendors and dozens of coordinated activities such as nearby green building tours and a student design competition. In addition to participating in the event on October 1st, vendors will be promoted in The New New York promotional materials including website, press releases, and more. Last year we were covered by a broad array of media including CNN, Inhabitat, The New York Daily News, The Brooklyn Eagle, and ReadyMade. The New New York Green Block Party is unlike any other outdoor event. – We endeavor to include as many neighborhood and NYC-based businesses and organizations as possible. – We require vendors to have an interactive display or activity to engage and educate attendees. This is not a convention show, it’s a party! – We will be implementing GreenHomeNYC’s green street festival guidelines to minimize trash, encourage composting and recycling, and leave no footprint behind. All vendors will need to participate in making the guidelines work — we’ll help you figure out how. (More details in application form.) – Our mission is to provide creative organizations and companies with the platform to demonstrate their techniques, teach visitors about meaningful ways to green their lives, and/or sell sustainable products.

We are looking for vendors/exhibitors who have a commitment to green as evidenced by their programming or products. Special consideration will be given to vendors/exhibitors who can provide hands-on demonstrations alongside the promotion of their programming or products. In the past we have had success with a vendor who sold composting kits and brought compost in various stages of decomposition for people to touch and smell. A non-profit farm-to-school vendor plated up examples of the traditional versus farm school lunch. Be creative! To apply/for more info: TNNY application
