After the Collingswood Crafts and Fine Arts Festival, August 17, 2019 at 5pm
Collingswood hosts "Market Night" as part of annual Craft and Fine Arts Festival
Entertainment, deals and fun on a closed Haddon Ave – Saturday evening, August 17
The weekend of August 17 and 18 in Collingswood is filled with billowing tents, beautiful art, live music and thousands of shoppers for the annual Crafts and Fine Arts Festival.
But on Saturday evening of the festival – it’s quiet. As crafters pack up at 5pm, Haddon Ave remains closed all night long, shoppers clear out and tents shutter for the night. But this year, Haddon Ave will come alive at five on August 17 third Collingswood Market Night.
This is the “after party” for the annual Collingswood Crafts and Fine Arts festival – so while some festival crafters choose to stay open, the focus is on Collingswood businesses and merchant-driven events! Not all festival booths will be open – but there are lots to do all along Collingswood’s downtown. Parties, games, music, movies, sales and specials from local businesses. Residents, families and guests are invited as Collingswood merchants fill the empty streets and invite the region to come together.

The idea for Collingswood’s first Night Market came from local business owners that noticed an opportunity in the closed street the Saturday evening of the two day Craft and Fine Art Festival, which permits artists to leave their tents in place for the weekend.
“This is all about using our spaces to provide more for our community and the region,” said Cass Duffey Collingswood’s Director of Community Development.
