Red Bank New Moon Pie Festival And Jubilee Parade Seeks Vendors

Monday, February 11, 2013

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association will host the 2013 New Moon Pie Festival and Jubilee Parade on April 20. The 34th annual event will be sponsored by Chattanooga Bakery, maker of the  World Famous Moon Pie, and Chattanooga's Greatest Hits, 107.9 BIG FM.

The RBNPA rebranded the Red Bank Jubilee in 2012. Vendor space was sold out and local teams competed in the first annual Moon Pie eating contest. "The New Moon Pie Festival is Red Bank's opportunity to promote our town as the area's best place to live, work and play," said Mike Congdon, chair of RBNPA.  "We are a safe and friendly community for people looking to put down roots. This is the very heart of the RBNPA mission."  

Currently the committee is seeking vendors and sponsors for the festival.  Vendors must sell handmade items that meet criteria.  For more information visit www.redbankpride.org or email redbanknpa@gmail.com.

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association is a group of Red Bank residents that are committed to helping the city be a more desirable place to live.  Their community meetings are held quarterly at the Red Bank Community Center behind Erlanger North.  All Red Bank residents are welcome to attend.  For more information visit www.redbankpride.org or email redbanknpa@gmail.com.
