Market Night & After Party
After the Collingswood Crafts and Fine Art Festival, August 19, 2023 5-9 PM
Collingswood hosts "Market Night" as part of annual Craft and Fine Art Festival
Entertainment, deals and fun on a closed Haddon Ave – Saturday evening, August 19
The weekend of August 19 and 20 in Collingswood is filled with billowing tents, beautiful art, live music and thousands of shoppers for the annual Crafts and Fine Art Festival. But on Saturday evening of the festival – it’s quiet. As crafters pack up, Haddon Ave remains closed all night long, shoppers clear out and tents shutter for the night. But once again this year, Haddon Ave will come alive at five on August 19 for our fifth Collingswood Market Night.
This is the “after party” for the annual Collingswood Crafts and Fine Art 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.
