Art in Park 2019

This is our second year at Art in the Park! Last year was a huge success and we had a great time meeting new people and introducing them to Shortwave. Our goal is to introduce as many people as possible to our coffees and shop and to make as many sales as possible. Art in Park is a really fun, high paced event.

Art in the Park will take place at Stephens Lake Park June 1 and 2, rain or shine. Our tent will feature cold brews and other drinks for purchase.

If you are scheduled for the event, make sure you arrive early to park and take the shuttle as the event is very crowded. Getting dropped off is best, use the entrance on Old 63.

How to act
It is important to remember that many people you talk with at special events have never heard of SW, so they are forming their impression of the company based on their interaction with you. While it may seem obvious, being friendly and looking excited to be there is so important. Be enthusiastic about the product as well- we are selling something very unique and fun, so act like it! Appearance wise, be put together. We are selling a high quality product and with that people expect to see high quality employees.
