WILD About Screven starting to gain momentum

The second WILD About Screven festival is shaping up, and the Screven County Chamber of Commerce and the GFWC Junior Woman’s Club are seeking venders, entertainers, crafters, and cooks to come make the second festival more successful than the wildly successful first event.
“We’re just pretty much trying to make it more accessible,” said Chamber Executive Director Latasha Roberts. “Registration forms are online, on our Facebook page now, and we’re promoting it as heavily as we can, including enticing the sponsors with a more affordable fee structure.”

On top of the sponsors, vender signups are occurring at the moment. An entry fee of $30 per space will be charged for all booths selling goods or food, and those booths that are non-profit information only will not be charged an entry fee. Other strictly informational or non-profit but selling items will pay a $20 entry fee.
Roberts said so far more than 1,000 venders from across the state have been contacted. Last year’s event traffic saw more than 3,000 people looking at the booths on the Screven County Courthouse lawn.
“The reason I’m really looking forward to not just local, is hopefully we can get them from out of county to pay gas here or get them to stay here and help boost the economy here,” she said.
Vendor registration forms are available at the Chamber of Commerce, http://www.screvencounty.com/m/events/view/WILD-About-Screven-Festival, and on the chamber’s Facebook page.
Dale Reddick, co-chair of the event, said the GFWC Junior Woman’s Club is doing everything they can to build on the success of last year’s festival.
“We’re always looking for something new and different to entice people to come,” she said. “We’ll always look for that new crafter or food booth or new talent to breakout to everybody.”
There will be a kid safety zone, health fair, dog show, photography contest, returning and new crafters, local student’s artwork, and more for every type of person.
“It has great potential because each year it’s building,” Reddick said. “We need to keep building partnerships and make it successful for everybody. It used to be so men wouldn’t really come, but now it’s for everyone.”
Friends of Screven County Animals will have at least two events at the festival – a golf ball drop and a 5k fun run. Reddick suggested those without a dog to enter in the dog show, adopt a FoSCA dog and show it off to the festival crowd.
President-Elect of the Chamber of Commerce Craig Lariscy said the teamwork between the chamber and the woman’s club has been exceptional.
“The main objectives of this festival are to promote all aspects to the county’s resources, whether they are culinary, business-related, wildlife, or recreation,” he said.
