Village of Wappingers Falls Restaurants and Business Participation
The Wappingers Falls Business & Professional Association will host the 5th annual “Festival at the Falls” on September 18, 2021 (Raindate:9/19/21). The WFBPA initiated the Festival as an event whose goal would be to attract attention to the diversity of businesses that call Wappingers Falls their home. While the Festival is predominately located in the Central Business District, we are extending an invitation to all businesses in our Village and local area to participate by having pop-up locations or by having special events at your own location. The pop-up locations will be in Mesier and Zion Parks. Our hope is that our open invitation to “Meet Us at the Falls” will entice visitors to return again and again. If you are considering a “pop-up” in the Parks, submit a Vendor application for a space. If you are a member of the Association, there is no charge to participate. Non-members pay a vendor fee. If you prefer to utilize your own location, we would request that you submit information about sidewalk or special sales, Festival Day menus, special entertainment, or drink specials so that you too are a part of Festival at the Falls. The WFBPA will publicize the information you provide on social media, an event day Village map and radio announcements advertising the upcoming event.
Additional parking will be available at St. Mary’s Church for the day. A shuttle mini-bus will
travel back and forth to Mesier Park. We also have sponsorship opportunities available as well.
Whatever your participation level might be, we cannot emphasize enough that it is your
participation that is our priority. The 2019 Festival at the Falls was a huge success! We hope you
will strongly consider actively participating in 2021! Showcase how your business should be a
reason to “Meet Us at the Falls”.
All the best,
