The city of Stow will host the 11th Annual Stow Summer Sunset Blast event on Sept. 2 and 3 from 3 to 10 p.m. at Silver Springs Park, 5238 Young Road in Stow. There will be craft beer, musical entertainment, children's games and inflatables, food, fun, and most important fireworks on Sept. 2. This is a free event that is open to the entire community.

In the event of inclement weather on Sunday, Stow Summer Sunset Blast may cancel that day and add an additional day on Sept. 4 from 5 to 10 p.m. This is only in the event of serious inclement weather. The decision will be made by the Summer Sunset Blast Committee, in accordance with Stow Safety Forces Event Emergency Response and Incident Action Plan.

The city of Stow is now accepting agreements from entities who have indicated their intent to be a vendor at the event, including both food vendors, and vendors who intend to promote, provide an activity, and/or sell.

The Summer Sunset Blast Committee strives to provide event attendees with an array of food and activities that are fun, festive and reasonably priced. On the flipside, the committee strives to provide vendors who have committed to the event the opportunity to profit from their participation in the event.

The Summer Sunset Blast Committee will review all submitted vendor agreements. In an attempt to balance out the menu and not "flood the floor," all vendors may not be accepted, or may be accepted with a revised menu. Due to the high interest in this event, Vendor Agreements received by the city of Stow without payment of vendor fee will not be accepted.

Stow Summer Sunset Blast will be the exclusive seller/manager of all alcohol sales. All vendors signed on under this agreement will be permitted to sell pop, water and any other non-alcoholic beverages.

The agreement deadline is June 9. Payment will secure a spot. The fees are $250 for- profit business vendors for one booth space; and $100 not-for-profit community organizations for one booth space.
