May Fair 2017
Collingswood, New Jersey will be bursting with art, music and activities for all ages on Saturday, May 27, 2017 as Collingswood Partners hosts the 37th 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 2016 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.
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 and Harley-Davidson motorcycle display 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 and florals sold in a delightful open air atmosphere.
You can download the street map below which shows the locations of the various sections of May Fair.
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!
