WESTFIELD, NJ — The 2016 Westfield FestiFall street fair, sponsored by the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, is set to take place Sunday, Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. 

Tens of thousands are expected to arrive from all around to enjoy the annual event, which will close off downtown streets to cars to make way for pedestrians, vendors, rides, games and entertainment. More than 230 local businesses and guest vendor booths will participate this year, according to the GWACC. 

There is no admission fee and parking will be free. The best spots to park, according to the chamber, are in the South Avenue train station. From there, attendees should cross into the festival area through the train underpass. Downtown streets closed to traffic will include Prospect, Elm, East Broad and Quimby Streets.
