All banners will hang for a maximum of four weeksThis is to allow other groups access to the poles. If there are no other requests for subsequent weeks, the organization may request an extension. New requests will take priority over an extension. Downtown events take precedence over all other requests.
Banners must promote downtown Mount Vernon or a whole-community civic
or arts event, that is, one in which the entire Knox County community is invited to
participate. Suitability of your design will be determined by the Design Committee
of Main Street Mount Vernon.
Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received. Decisions will be communicated within two weeks of application receipt.
Banner must be 30” x 61”. Pockets on top and bottom are 4” leaving 53” of
printable space. Banners should have 2 grommets either side: see diagram. No
other size will fit the armatures. There are a total of 30 banner locations on South
Main Street; we recommend a maximum of 15 banners to be placed for the
optimum display presentation, with a limit of only two different event banner
designs displayed at any one time. Call our office for more details.
We recommend you contact us for local vendors to create your banners. All companies do a fine job designing banners
and meeting our specifications.
An image, drawing or sample, including colors of your proposed banner, MUST be attached to the application.
