Do you craft, sell direct sales or own a restaurant??

Merritt Academy is looking to revamp the Taste of Merritt Event this year. The event will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2019 from 5pm-8pm. We are adding a Vendor Room and currently looking for handmade crafts and direct sales for fill booths at this indoor show. Limited space is available on a first come, first served basis. There is a $20 table rental fee and we will be only taking one direct sales per company.

The Tasting Room will still be open with hopes to bring in multiple restaurants and catering companies. If you know of any restaurant that would like to participate in the tasting room please let us know.
