Plymouth Green Street Fair Ends
The annual Green Street Fair in downtown Plymouth is canceled for not bringing in enough revenue.
Downtown Plymouth's annual Green Street Fair in May will no longer kick off the warm weather event season.
After five years, the organizers are ending the event because it was not bringing in enough revenue, according to an article in HometownLife.com.
The fair focused on re-use, recycling and other earth-friendly efforts.
“It was just an uphill battle,” Dianne Quinn, who is also the chief organizer of Art in the Park, told HometownLife. “We just worked way too hard and we didn't get anything.”
The cost of the fair averaged about $70,000 annually, and the money went to equipment rental, police and fire protection, private security, setup and cleanup and entertainment, according to the article.
