The market is expected this to grow substantially as 2023 was the first year for the event. Most patrons saw online advertising as well as the signs posted in the downtown area. We will also be working closer with Fringe fest this season as well as more involvement with the Deaf Community and other community service organizations.
Now that proof of concept has happened more people are looking to participate.
