The most essential way to contribute to the Southside Harvest Festival is to attend. Come out to Cocolalla on Saturday, October 6 to have fun and support your friends and neighbors!
Support Our Vendors
Browse offerings from regional growers, artisans and businesses and support the local economy! All vendor fees go to improving the church grounds for next year’s Festival.
Join a Work Day
Southside Community Church organizes regular work days to get the facility ready. See the SCC Facebook Page for the latest dates and planned projects.
We need people to help with setup during the week before the event, and during the Festival assisting with the children’s area, first aid station, parking, directing traffic, and being generally available. Volunteers who sign up for a two hour time slot will receive an event staff T-Shirt and free admission to the Country Dance.
Distribute Festival Flyers
We need people willing to help distribute event posters at bulletin boards through the area.
Join the Sign Task Force
One of the most important aspects of getting ready for an event is making sure people know about it and how to get there. We need people to help make and set up banners and signs, including signage onsite (such as exit signs, parking lot markers, “restrooms this way”, etc).
Provide Photo and Video
If you have a beautiful, evocative image of Cocolalla that deserves to be seen, please contact the organizers about using it on the website or for event marketing materials. We also need people to take photos and video during the event, to document all the fun stuff that will be happening.
Spread the Word
Tell your friends, family and neighbors about the Festival and invite them to attend with you! Share the Southside Harvest Festival Facebook event page and like our posts.
An inventory system is in place to keep track of all equipment. Currently, we need the following items:
- 6’x2.5’ Tables
- 8’x2.5’ Tables
- Folding Chairs
- Outdoor Folding Awnings
- Extension Cords
- Traffic Cones
- Picnic Tables
- Portable Fencing
Contribute Raffle Prizes or Items to Sell
The Women’s Ministry will be selling produce from the church garden, preserves, baked goods, pies, crafts and more. Proceeds will be used to for future events and for repairing the church buildings. We would also appreciate donations of fall-themed items that can be combined in prize packages for the raffle.
Donate to the Building Fund
Our vision is to establish the Southside Harvest Festival as an annual event, however, both the church building and the auxiliary building are in need of major repairs.
