A new Pancake Breakfast Booth and the Gourmet Food Booth will be set up and ready for patrons attending the 51st Nescatunga Arts Festival on Saturday, June 4, on the Woods County Courthouse lawn.
These two food booths are the Festival’s biggest fundraisers to help with the Festival, First Friday Artwalks, student scholarships and more.
Members of the Nescatunga committee wanted to try something new this year, so instead of the various food booths from the past, there will be one breakfast line manned by four high school groups that will take shifts throughout the morning cooking and serving pancakes and sausage beginning at 8 a.m. The plan is to serve until 11 a.m. or whenever supplies run out.
The students will be representing Alva High School band, speech and debate, art and Electric Gold.
Some of these student volunteers also will be at a booth selling bottles of water, Gatorade and pop.
For their efforts, Nescatunga will be making a donation to each group.
Nescatunga also is asking for volunteers to help the organization by donating some home-baked items and other goodies for the Gourmet Food Booth.
In past years some of the delectable desserts donated included cakes, pies, cookies, cinnamon rolls, brownies, breads and more. The booth included items from people who were known for making some of the best baked items in the area. Rumor has it that the tasty and large Nescatunga Cookies will be arriving at the booth again this year.
Committee members noted, too, that the volunteer bakers do not have to be members of Nescatunga to provide an item for the booth as all donations will be graciously accepted.
Anyone willing to make something for the Gourmet Food Booth should deliver their goodies to the booth on the downtown square by no later than 8 a.m.
This year’s Gourmet Food Booth chair is Nicki Chaffee. Questions can be directed to her at (580) 430-5450.
If the arts festival encounters inclement weather, the events will be moved to the 4 Generations Organic Building, south of Alva at 2878 College Blvd. Watch the organization’s Facebook page (/NescatungaArts) or website (www.Nescatunga.org) for updates.
