CHATHAM, NJ - There will be something for everyone on Saturday, June 11 when Chatham holds its Fishawack Festival, which starts with the opening of the Farmer's Market at 8 a.m. and closes with a movie under the stars at night.

"It has been truly inspiring to see so many people come together to organize Chatham-wide events," Roubi Stavropoulos of MyChathamNJ and the Community Services Department. "This year's Fishawack Festival will be especially spectacular thanks to the collaborative efforts of MyChathamNJ and the Community Services Department."

In addition to the annual Jaycees Fishawack run, the Chatham Community Services Department has brought back the vintage car show, pony rides, dancing in the street and more.

As an added treat, USA women's soccer star Carli Lloyd will be signing autographs at the Library from 3 to 6 p.m., courtesy of Legends Gallery.

"Community events, such as the Fishawack Festival, act as an economic stimulus program for local merchants and area not-for-profit organizations, while providing a destination location filled with entertainment and family fun," Janice Piccolo, director of Chatham Community Serives, said.
