This year’s Squash & Gobble will be unlike any other! Squash & Gobble is going virtual! THERE WILL BE NO IN-PERSON EVENT!
While we were deeply saddened to cancel this annual tradition, we felt it was in the best interest of everyone involved under the current restrictions. We, along with officials from the City of Greenville and the Muhlenberg County Health Department, explored many different options but concluded the social distancing requirements and limitations on gathering sizes would not allow an in-person event to take place responsibly.
However, we also understand that this is a difficult time for artisans, as many rely on shows like Squash & Gobble. With shows getting cancelled across the country, we want to provide the opportunity to showcase our artisans virtually! We are waiving the fee and will be creating a virtual event for people to shop your handmade and handcrafted items!
How will this event work?
The event page will be published on Sept. 12th and will run until Sept. 26th.
Once the event begins on Sept. 12th, our talented 2020 artisans will be listed below. If you see something you’re interested in, click “Shop” and you will be redirected to a page showcasing additional pictures.
An online Facebook event has also be created to highlight artisans and do live videos or demonstrations.
Shoppers can contact artisans with the contact information included on the individual artisan pages as well as on the Facebook posts to place an order.
Artisans will be responsible for arranging the transaction (collecting payment, pickup, delivery, shipping, etc.)
