After the Collingswood Crafts and Fine Arts Festival, August 18, 2018 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 18
The weekend of August 18 and 19 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 18 second Collingswood Market Night.
Saturday night of the festival, Collingswood merchants will fill the empty streets for a sidewalk sale. Guests can catch an outdoor movie or mini-concert, play games, dance or take a fitness class! Residents, families and guests from the region are invited to specials and entertainment from 5 to 9pm along a closed Haddon Avenue!
Collingswood’s Night Market will include:
-Sidewalk Sale from local merchants
-Community Dance Party
-Restaurant specials and outdoor dining area
-Art from select festival vendors and local artists
-Family yoga class and outdoor cycling class, Powell Lane
-BYOChair throwback movie night, Woodlawn Ave
-Atari Party, Dig This, 717 Haddon Ave
-Family games and entertainment from ExtraordinaryED, 808 Haddon area
-Lawn Chair Concerts – Zane School/Millennium Clock at Haddon & Irvin Aves
-Jewelry and silver appraisals at McGarry’s Jewelers, 796 Haddon Ave
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.
