The Downtown Sampler Rules 2017 will be held Saturday, April 22, from 12-4 p.m.
This event is open to the public and a ticket booth will be at the Courtyard at Crescent City. Call Garrett at 706.278-3332 for information to participate this year.
Tickets are $20 per person. Dalton State College students and staff pay $10 (must have DSC id
or valid DSC email address). Children under 12 are free. Ticket sales will be online at www.eventbrite.com, www.downtowndalton.com, and physical tickets can be acquired in the DDDA office.
The proceeds from ticket sales are equally distributed to participating restaurants after advertising costs. For example, average sales from the past samplers are 100 tickets (+$200 reimbursed to each restaurant/merchant).
Participating restaurants are asked to provide ‘bite sized’ samples of at least three types of their cuisine and from their existing menu. Restaurants should prepare for 300 people (not every patron makes it to each stop).
All participants are required to submit a menu to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is to ensure there is a stronger marketing campaign and all participating entities have a similar menu base for repayment. The menu is due, on or before, March 24.
The event is advertised in the Dalton Daily Citizen News, on television (varies but at least WDNN), radio (Mix 104.5 and WBLJ), internet (community calendar, Dalton Events calendar, DDDA website, Facebook, Weekend Guide, direct email), posters, and table tents.
The DDDA will provide all those participating with handbills and posters for the event, detailing how people may sign up for the event.
