Konnected Community Fest

 

The First Annual Konnected Community Fest makes a commitment to working with Local Authorities and other community partners to enliven and celebrate the Queen City. The strategy for this partnership is to ultimately improve the quality of life in the inner city by encouraging community organizations and businesses to work together. The Konnected Foundation will facilitate the event with special emphasis on staging, placement of stations and a comprehensive flow of traffic. Safety, timeliness, and efficiencies are top priorities. This will be a free event in terms of entry and parking. To offset operational costs a nominal fee will be charged to qualified vendors. To avoid interruptions in the city’s day to day operations; yet maximize the opportunity to attract patrons, the festival will mostly be facilitated outside in an enclosed area around a black top and playground area.
