Dave Baustert, owner of Crooked Creek Distillery, and partner Meredith Baldock, stand with the new still at the West Newton business, which they opened in August. They will participate in the June 15 Ethnic Food Fest & Handmade Crafts in downtown Greensburg.

The newly formed Greensburg Business & Professional Association will host an Ethnic Food Fest & Handmade Crafts event 10 a.m.-2 p.m. June 15 at the South Pennsylvania Avenue parking lot.

Festival plans include flavorful foods from around the world at the inaugural event, celebrating the region’s rich ethnic diversity, says event chair Ronel Baccus.

The group formed in 2018 to give the city’s downtown shopping district more credibility and profitability, with plans to host events drawing more people into the city.

Food will be available from Crooked Creek Distillery, the Greensburg Moose lodge, McFeely’s Gourmet Chocolate and an Italian ice provider, Baccus says.

“This is a first event for Greensburg, to try to get the different churches to come together with different cultures and foods and promote unity,” she says.

In addition, local crafters will be selling essential oils, candy, children’s jewelry and hair bows.

Vendor applications will be accepted through Friday evening, Baccus says.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
