The musical performances are scheduled from noon – 4:00 pm and the dessert-tasting hours will be from noon – 3:00 p.m. (or while supplies last). Activities will take place on the Beckley Intermodal Gateway Plaza off of Neville Street. This location is on the top level of the City's parking facility. The Neville Street Market will also be going on nearby during the event.

Sweet Treats offers an opportunity to promote local businesses or organizations, plus help raise funds for the United Way. Dessert participants are asked to provide 100 samples. Attendees will purchase tickets for samples; and the dessert participants will collect their tickets in exchange for samples. Participants may also sell larger dessert portions, other food or items, and/or take orders at their booth. Participants can promote their desserts, and/or business or charity, plus support the United Way cause during this fun community event. Food vendors should follow all requirements of the Health Department (304-252-8531).

Everyone is invited to visit the plaza to enjoy the free concerts by local students. Dessert-tasting tickets can be purchased for $5 (includes a strip of five sample tickets that can be used for dessert / drink samples, along with a Peoples Choice ballot). Ticket proceeds will benefit the United Way & help cover event expenses. Registration details may be found on the city's website, click on Beckley Events, or call 304-256-1776.
