As Tim Ciancola, president of Craftproducers said "we are very happy and appreciate the opportunity to stay in the area. Manchester has been a great draw for us over the years. Riley Rink at Hunter Park is a full event facility offering our artists and vendors an ideal site."

Future plans for the fields including hosting concerts, performances and sporting tournaments including soccer and lacrosse competitions. As Chris Ams, president said "we are poised to launch an expanded program to offer residents and visitors additional opportunities to enjoy our area while generating revenue to support ongoing and new programs at Riley Rink
