Show returns for 2nd year with new vendors
by David Maas
KANEVILLEâ€”Several new businesses will have booths at this yearâ€™s Craft and Business Fair at Kaneville Fest.
Taking place both days of the festival, Aug. 28 and 29, from 9 am to 3 p.m., the show will be filled with a variety of businesses, crafters, and nonprofit groups from the surrounding area. Last yearâ€™s show had 40 different booths, and organizers are hoping this year will be just as big, if not larger.
Kaneville Fest organizers decided to bring the show back to the festival because of its popularity.
â€œThe feedback was very positive,â€ said Karen Flamand, show coordinator.
New vendors include Scentsy of Aurora, Chiro One Wellness of Oakbrook, and Bathroom Crafters of Lombard.
Many vendors are returning for this yearâ€™s show, including Tastefully Simple and Miche Bags of Sugar Grove, Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival, Move Me Yoga of Elburn, and the Kaneville Historical Society, among others.
Other vendors will sell products that include candles, jewelry and home goods.
The show will be held in two different locations. On Saturday it will be at the Dave Werdin Community Center, 2 S. 101 Harter Road, and on Sunday, the showâ€™s location will be one block from the Kaneville Fire Department, on Lovell Street.
