Two of the American Cancer Society’s premier events, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the inaugural Minnesota Made Extravaganza, will take place on Saturday, October 27. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive walk raising funds and awareness for breast cancer. The Minnesota Made Extravaganza is an elite social event which brings people together to celebrate all things that give Minnesota the nickname the “Bold North” while raising crucial funds for the mission of the American Cancer Society. The first-ever ACS Minnesota Marketplace will be held at both events and will be filled with premier local vendors and small businesses looking to display and sell their products while supporting the fight against cancer.
Vendors may choose to attend one or both events, and there is limited space availability at each event. Setup will take place between 7:00am-8:30am for Making Strides and between 4:00-5:30pm for the Minnesota Made Extravaganza. There will be 8,000-10,000 walkers at Making Strides, and 350-450 attendees at the Minnesota Made Extravaganza. Please promote the events to your friends and family!
