Let's TACO bout May 4th in downtown Emporia! Two awesome events combined into one!

May 4th is going to be busy in downtown Emporia! This year, Emporia Main Street is working with our friends at Dynamic Discs and in Hispanics of Today and Tomorrow for a Cinco De Mayo & Dynamic Dicsc Open Block Party! The fun will start at 11 am in the 600 & 700 blocks of Commercial Street with a Cinco de Mayo Celebration! Food vendors, beer garden, entertainment and more!

The fun continues into the evening when the Dynamic Discs Open Block Party kicks off in the 800 & 900 blocks of Commercial Street. Tons of disc golf vendors, beer, games, and more!

The 600 & 700 blocks of Commercial Street will be closed from 8:00 am to 11 pm. The 800 & 900 blocks of Commercial Street will close from 2:30 pm to 11 pm that day. The La Grind Stage Race will also be taking place that day in the 500 block of Commercial Street.

We are currently accepting vendors for May 4th, 2024. The Cinco de Mayo Celebration will begin at 11 am that day. At 5pm, we will close off an additional two blocks (800 & 900 blocks) and open the Dynamic Discs Golf Block Party. At 5pm the two events will be combined into one large event where people can carry beer from block to block and people can visit vendors in the 4-block area.

There will be two options to vend.

All Day Option

This option will allow vendors to vend from 11am to 10pm. All Day Vendors will be set up in the 600 & 700 blocks of Commercial Street. Placement will depend on your signup date and electrical needs. Vendors who choose this option should prepare for crowds from the Cinco de Mayo celebration and the Dynamic Discs Block party. All Day vendors will need to set up around 9am and be open for business by 11 am. All Day Vendors will not be able to leave the event until it is over at 11 pm and the road is opened by Emporia PD.

Half Day Option

This option will allow vendors to vend from 5pm -10pm. Half Day Vendors will be set up in the 800 & 900 blocks. Placement will depend on your signup date and electrical needs. Vendors who choose this option will be able to set up by 3pm and should be open for business by 5pm. All Day Vendors will not be able to leave the event until it is over at 11 pm and the road is opened by Emporia PD. There will be several Disc Golf related vendors set up in this area.

Additional Vendors Information

-NO REFUNDS for cancellations. The event is rain or shine.

-Booth spaces are 12 ft wide by 15 ft deep. If your area exceeds this, then you need to purchase multiple booths. For example, if your food truck is 15ft wide (even with the hitch) you need 2 spots.
