6th Annual Zucchini Festival & Antique Car Show
August 18th from 12-4 pm
ANTIQUE CAR SHOW, RESTO MODS & HOT RODS - Register your antique car (pre 1995) and participate on our Antique Car show as well. You can win in the following categories: “Best Car”, “Best Retro Mod”, “Best Hot Rod”, “Best Interior”, “Best Paint”. The price is $5 for each car entry
ZUCCHINI COOKOFF - The rules have changed back to the previous design used in past years, and there is no entry fee. Entries will be in three categories: Salads/Appetizers, Entrees/Casseroles, and Desserts/Breads. As I mentioned, there is no entry fee but all entries must fill out an application AND submit the recipe. Feel free to bring in a copy of your recipe, and the application earlier than the 18th. You will purchase or grow your own zucchini. Entries (food items) must be submitted on the day of the Zucchini Festival, August 18th, by 12:30 pm. There will be no access to heating these entries unless you bring it in a crock pot or chaffing dish set up. We prefer to see the items cut into bite size pieces if possible, if not, that’s ok. Please remember, the success of this event only works if you submit an entry. Lots of people had said they were going to submit an entry last year and only two did. Ironically for the same dish. The winner in each category will win one of our new Zucchini green t-shirts. It’s lots of fun and gives you bragging rights till 2020.
CRAFTERS & VENDOR TABLES- Our event just wouldn’t be complete without our vendor and nonprofit tables. Any craft vendor or business can rent a table for $10. If you are a nonprofit, you can join us for FREE.
BAKE SALE - This year the Friends of the Holland Community Center are having a Bake Sale table. We are looking for bake sale donations of any kind. If you bake cookies or pies bring them in and we will separate them into sellable packages accordingly.
CHINESE RAFFLE – Come down and try your luck at our Chinese Raffle. We have some great donation already including jewelry, gift baskets, Christmas items, Table Runners & Quilts, and more! Of course, we are always looking for items we can use at our Raffle tables so please bring items down during the month of August so we can add them to our table.
FUN THINGS FOR KIDS – For our second year in a row we are bringing back the bubble machine. Wear appropriate clothing to run through the bubbles for hours of fun. We will also have a face painter, a musician, a magician, the Spirit of Zucchini, crafts, and games.
BOYSCOUTS MAN THE GRILL – Each year we pick a regional scout troop to participate in our Zucchini Festival. This year the Sturbridge Boy Scouts will be cooking hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. and they get to keep all the profits. It’s always fun to have them join us.
