After renewing its partnership with Helper City for another two years, Saturday Vibes is gearing up for another fun-packed season in 2023.
Allie Farnham, Helper Saturday Vibes Market Manager, took time to highlight what the community can expect from the upcoming season, which will feature 10 events spanning May to September. The events will remain on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.
Farnham was excited to announce that 2023 will feature all new bands. The Vibes team will be bringing new performers to the stage, with two acts scheduled for each event.
The 2023 season will also feature some new themes, including PIE-oneer Day, Latin Nights and Country Western. Two favorites from 2022 will return for another run, including Pride and Everything Animal.
As part of the partnership with Helper City, Vibes will implement a few changes and improvements to better serve the city and the community. This will include a commitment from Vibes to hire one local police office per event. There will also be upgraded monitoring at entrances, which means no outside alcohol will be allowed and no alcohol will be allowed to leave the venue.
For those who do not consume alcohol, new “mocktails” will be offered this year. These non-alcoholic craft beverages are promised to delight children and adults alike.
In terms of drinks, Farnham stressed the importance of reducing plastic at the events. Aluminum cups, which will be recycled locally by Howa’s, will be available at the bar instead of plastic. Vibes encourages the community to bring their reusable cups to the events to further their goal of creating a low-waste event.
Finally, Farnham announced new additions to the Vibes team, including Joelle Amaya, who is the organization’s new administrative assistant. Additionally, Ashley Vincent will be facilitating enhanced activities for children. Many others will be returning to make the 2023 season a success, including dozens of employees and volunteers from 2022.
