Collingswood, New Jersey will be bursting with art, music and activities for all ages on Saturday, May 24, 2014 as Collingswood Partners hosts the 34th Annual May Fair. What began in 1979 as a small “clothesline art exhibit” now encompasses more than a mile of the business district along Haddon Avenue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
An estimated 50,000 people attended the 2013 event which was expanded to include more blocks and attractions and we expect this year to be even bigger. 200+ artists and crafters will display and sell their unique creations in a juried show. Children will have their day of fun in the “KidZone” featuring pony rides, carnival games, rides and children-friendly crafters.
Three stages of live music will feature blues, rock, folk and more. (Check back for the performacne schedule) An antique & classic auto show (download the registration form below) and Harley-Davidson motorcycle display add to the festival’s appeal. Visitors will also find several Food Courts complimenting the downtown restaurants & cafés.
There will be everything from pulled pork to funnel cake! May Fair also welcomes the return of the renowned Collingswood Farmers Market offering “Jersey Fresh” produce and florals sold in a delightful open air atmosphere.
Parking is available in the PATCO lots and on side streets. Haddon Avenue will be closed to traffic beginning at 6 am. PATCO is a great way to come to May Fair; the Collingswood station is a block from the action!
If you need an address to Google or to enter in your GPS, use 678 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood, NJ 08108 which is the Borough Hall in the center of town.

Note: All work to be exhibited must be handmade by the artist or crafter. The resale of any merchandise that is manufactured or not personally created is strictly prohibited. The Crafter Application is available for download below.
Health & Home - This section was created to showcase your products and services. Space is extremely limited. You must provide a description of your product or service. We reserve the right to refuse participation. The Health and Home Application is available for download below.
Food Vendors - May Fair food vendors are comprised of our local restaurants and eateries, complimented by hot dog, bbq, kettle corn, lemonade and other carnival-type foods.
Most vendors return annually so we’re not in the market for new food vendors, especially those that are already well covered as listed above.
If you feel you have a unique food item, you can email email@example.com with a link to your web site or Facebook page or photos. We will be happy to review and let you know if we’re interested.
