We are working hard to give performers exposure for entertaining the crowds at the Market.
Entertainers get exposure by:
o a listing in one of the Market ads with the Hillsboro Argus highlighting the different entertainment acts.
o a mention on participating radio stations, public service announcements, if possible.
o exposure on the Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace website, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
o references to other events.
The Market’s Entertainment/Special Event Committee will jury the applicant and will contact approved entertainers throughout the entire run of the Market Season, as space is available.
If you have any questions, please e-mail us. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
