40th Annual May Fair
Collingswood, New Jersey will be bursting with art, music and activities for all ages on Saturday, May 25, 2019 as Collingswood Partners hosts the 40th 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 10am to 5pm. Rain date is May 26, 2019.
An estimated 50,000 people attended the 2018 event which was expanded to include more blocks and attractions and we expect this year to be even better. 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 carnival games, rides and children-friendly crafters.
Multiple stages of live music will feature blues, rock, folk and more. A schedule will be posted closer to the actual date of the event. An antique & classic auto show 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 fancy desserts! May Fair also welcomes the return of the renowned Collingswood Farmers Market offering “Jersey Fresh” produce, flowers and more 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.
