Join us for The Center’s SpringFest! The Center Foundation and Pursuit have successfully secured Saturday, March 25, 2017 as a recommended training ride for the BP MS150. Our ride date puts The Center Springfest event exactly five (5) weeks prior to the much anticipated BP MS150. We are so excited about revitalizing this event to raise awareness of The Center, Willow River Farms and the people we serve. Come prepared–we ride rain or shine!

Marketplace at SpringFest

New for this year, The Center will be adding a Marketplace into the mix of SpringFest activities. We are looking for more local business owners, entrepreneurs, and community organizations to take part in the Marketplace at SpringFest. This is your opportunity to introduce your products and services to not only the people of Waller County, but visitors from the Houston and San Antonio areas.

More than 900 riders, their families, and local supporters will have the opportunity to peruse and shop the Marketplace during the ride and while the post-ride celebrations are taking place. As a part of the event, we have also invited local print, radio, and television media to come and see the SpringFest experience. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to put your business right in the middle of the action!

Please send your completed vendor contract form and a $125 check payable to The Center to:

The Center SpringFest
