Jan. 16, 2015

HARRISBURG – The City of Harrisburg has set a deadline of Jan. 30, 2015 to receive “Request for Proposals” to help manage the Independence Day Weekend and Kipona festivals for 2015-16.

According to the RFP, “The City of Harrisburg is awarding this contract to a vendor whose team will professionally produce the Independence Day Festival and Kipona Festival for 2015 & 2016.

“Working in tandem with the City, the event producer will procure food, music, and entertainment attractions while further developing the relationship with current institutional event partners.”

The full RFP is available here: www.harrisburgpa.gov/bids

The City of Harrisburg wants to continue to provide quality summer festivals that attract hundreds of people from Central Pennsylvania and throughout the nation, the RFP states, but does not have sufficient staff to organize and manage them effectively. The RFP details how proposals will be judged and encourages participation of minority, women and LGBT business owners. The City will announce the selected vendor by March 20, 2015.
