2nd Saturday was started by a collection of store owners that had an interest in promoting the arts in Collingswood. This monthly arts event, now under the umbrella of Collingswood Partners, Inc., has turned into one of the more popular town events and grows every month with new artists and participating store locations. Established in 2004, Second Saturday Collingswood is an exciting event designed to expose local artists and musicians to the many residents and visitors of Collingswood and the surrounding area. Each month visitors can plan a night on the town to experience the unique arts, music, shopping and dining Collingswood is known for. As always, Second Saturdays are free. Just visit Collingswood, stroll and enjoy the culture - on us.
