Presenter Application Information

The next How-To Festival will be Saturday, February 9, 2019

We are looking for presenters to be a part of our How-To Festival. All you need is a 30-minute presentation with simple instructions and materials to teach 25 people how to do something.

It can be something you do as a hobby you would like to share.

It can be something that your business does that folks should know.

We are looking for how-to topics for all ages!

Really the topics are boundless and up to your imagination!

What do you need to do?

Fill out the application form and tell us what it is you will be teaching (no worries, you do not have to be a professional speaker.) We are doing this for fun!

Figure out your presentation and bring all the materials you will need to instruct others. If you need items like scissors, tape, staplers, or electricity, please let us know. We can probably take care of those items. All other materials you would supply. Some of you may need very little, it just depends on your topic.

You may and are encouraged to bring materials to promote your business. We are asking you to do this for free, so you need to get something out of the event too.

You need to be here 30 minutes prior to your assigned time slot so you can set up. Please remember there will probably be someone breaking down while you set up.

Questions: Please call Debbie Albrecht at 708-474-2485 ext. 100
We are looking forward to this being a fun event for our whole community.
There will be events for all ages.

Deadline extended to is Friday, January 11, 2019

Fill out the form online.
