Oil City's North Side Business Association is planning a series of street fairs on Seneca Street. The street will be closed from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and there will be music, vendors, etc. The dates are all Saturdays, June 14, June 28, July 12, August 9, and August 30. There will be no booth fees -- we are still looking into the city vendors' license question for these events.You can plan to have your studios open, or to set up a booth on the street. Again, you will need to be set up as a business with a sales tax id in order to sell your work. (According to the Derrick there will be a $20 vendor's license). The committee is now discussing a small booth fee as well, to cover the costs of insurance for the event.If you are interested in setting up a booth as a vendor, please let Daryl Hicks know .
