The Bismarck Cancer Center is excited to introduce a new event at this year’s Applefest. The Applefest ‘Junk’n Flip’ is a take on HGTV’s ‘Flea Market Flip’ which is a show that pits two teams against each other to up-cycle old items into glamorous articles.
Ten participating teams (max 4 people on each team) will be able to purchase an item to fix up along with embellishments (for $100 or less) from our Junkfest vendors at Applefest on Saturday, September 21 from 11 to 1:00. They will then be able to work on their prize from 1:00 to 6:00 PM on Saturday and from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Sunday. The finished items will be judged and sold via a live auction at the Buckstop Junction Hotel at 2:00 PM on Sunday, September 22. Items will be judged on the ‘thriftiest’, ‘people’s choice’, and ‘highest auctioned item’ with prizes awarded accordingly. All proceeds from the auction will go to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation.
The cost is $100 to compete (you get $100 back to spend on your flip at Applefest) and you must provide your own tools, paint brushes, etc. We are also looking for Junkfest vendors who would be interested in selling their antiques and junk, the junk ’n vendors outdoors space is $50 Saturday or $100 both Saturday and Sunday (bring your own tents, tables, chairs etc.) Space is limited – fill out an application today!
