May Fair 2014
The 2015 May Fair will be held on Saturday, May 23. Check back in late January for updated information, forms, etc.
Collingswood, New Jersey will be bursting with art, music and activities for all ages on Saturday, May 24, 2014 as Collingswood Partners hosts the 35th 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.
Four stages of live music will feature blues, rock, folk and more. (Check out the performance schedule below.) An antique & classic auto show (download the information 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.
