Collingswood, New Jersey will be bursting with art, music and activities for all ages on Saturday, May 25, 2013 as Collingswood Partners hosts the 34th 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 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
An estimated 50,000 people attended the 2012 event which was expanded to include more blocks and attractions and we expect this year to be even bigger. 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 pony rides, carnival games, rides and children-friendly crafters.
Five stages of live music featured blues, rock, folk and more. An antique & classic auto show and Harley-Davidson motorcycle display and contest added to the festival's appeal. Visitors will also find several Food Courts complimenting the downtown restaurants & cafes.
There was everything from pulled pork to funnel cake! May Fair also welcomes the return of the renowned Collingswood Farmers Market offering "Jersey Fresh" produce and florals 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.
