Beckley’s Coffee & Tea Celebration
Downtown Beckley Event – Saturday, April 6, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
You are invited to be a part of Beckley’s Coffee & Tea Celebration hosted by Beckley Events and local coffee and tea shops/vendors. Please consider using this opportunity to promote your business or organization.
Coffee and tea participants may offer samples in exchange for tickets during the event. Attendees purchase tickets for samples (5 for $5), and the drink/dessert participants collect their tickets in exchange for samples. Participants will be
reimbursed 50 cents per ticket collected after the event. Beckley Events can provide the sample cups (for 3 oz samples). Participants may sell larger drink cups or dessert portions, other food or items, and/or take orders at their booth/business. Participants should probably plan to bring enough coffee/tea/dessert for approximately 100 samples (It can be 100 samples of one product or be a combination of products i.e. 50 coffee samples & 50 tea or dessert samples), plus bring extra product to sell in larger cups. You may accept the tickets for samples of an optional coffee/tea-infused dessert if you wish. Music and coffee/tea workshops may also be part of the event. A few food trucks, honey vendors and book authors may be accepted as well. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to promote your
drink, dessert, and your business!
