The 2015 Block Party Application is now available! Similar to past years, this process will be truly competitive and we are looking to enhance the tradition of providing quality events in downtown Erie.
We saw a record number of charitable donations in 2014 and we thank you for these efforts. We look forward to working together to set new records again this year!
Our goal is to keep people coming downtown each week. Once again, we have placed a higher value on new ideas and cost saving initiatives to be implemented in 2015. How can you offset costs while increasing exposure to the designated charity? If someone had to choose to attend one or two events out of 10, why would they choose yours?
We would also like applicants to focus on including as many Erie Downtown Partnership members as possible. They do not have to be located on your block, but do need to be located within our district boundaries. We want members to become involved and realize the marketing value of these events and the fact they can be beneficial to all members, not just to those in the food and beverage industry.
You can find the 2015 Block Party Applications in the MEMBERS REQUEST page of our website.
