Bridal Expo Vendors Needed

We’re seeking wedding vendors for our winter 2019 Bridal Expo. The event will be held at the recently renovated Mount Vernon Creates Event Center in Mount Vernon, IA. For vendor pricing information, please contact Denise Murphy at denise@mountvernoncreates.com for more information.

The event will run from 10 – 4 pm Feb 9, 2019.  Set up starts at 9 am.

We are also looking for a vendor to provide wedding dresses, tuxedos and models for this event.  The plan would be to have a stationary area for brides to view from.  (next year 2020 will have a runway show)

This venue is a beautifully renovated space right on main street in Mount Vernon, IA.

Unbridled Spirits Opening Art Reception Dec 7th

Please join us for the Unbridled Spirits Opening Art Reception Dec 7th.  This opening reception celebrates the artists that participated on Oct 21 creating art at Unbridled Spirits and the many supporters of this wonderful ranch.  6 – 8 pm.

Unbridled Spirits is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 and based out of Lisbon, Iowa.

This is the ONLY off-track thoroughbred retirement sanctuary in the entire Midwest whose transition process includes a full-time pasture retirement option! Yes, there are some amazing facilities that offer career transitioning to an other sport like dressage, eventing, hunter jumper, and more…. But there are no other sanctuaries that allow the horses to run free on over 100 acres and just learn how to be horses again! 

The mission is to preserve the honor and dignity of these amazing athletes by offering a retirement option to these racing thoroughbreds whose racing, breeding, and competitive careers come to an end. 

When a racing star leaves the track or the breeding shed, they still have a large fan-following and a tourist appeal… not to mention a desire for love and affection, same as any horse! We care what happens to these horses, and so many others do as well.

Book Signing Nov 17 – Harper Unleashed

Kenneth Bloom will be at the Vendor and Artisan’s Fair on Nov 17th at Mount Vernon Creates for his new book signing.  You might recognize this name from this year’s Lincoln Highway Arts Festival in Mount Vernon, IA.

This book is the 4th in a series of detective stories. Harper, the protagonist, hears that a 9 year old girl is missing. It’s January and she fears the worst. “I’ve got to find her John!” Her husband can’t fathom why the girl’s disappearance has become personal, but there are so many events in Harper’s past that she won’t share. What is clear is this case will unleash every ounce of power she possesses.
