Think Summerfest

Registration is open for businesses, individuals and community organizations who want to participate in this year’s Summerfest. This is an excellent opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services at a business expo booth. Crafters can display their wares in the craft and vendor fair. Community organizations are welcome to set up a food booth to raise money for a worthy cause. There are also sponsorship opportunities at many levels. You can donate a prize or service in support of Summerfest or construct a float for the Summerfest Parade. Individual volunteers are always needed, as well. Come and get into the spirit of community and be part of Windham’s big event of the summer. To register online, go to or call the Parks & Recreation Department office at 892-1905.
