WESTFIELD, NJ — The Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce will present its 26th annual Festifall street fair on Sunday, Sept., 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Local businesses and guest vendor booths will line the streets of the center of Downtown Westfield and rides, games, a wide variety of food, bargains, crafts and opportunities to discover what is great about Westfield. The fair will take place rain or shine.
“Festifall is a great time for everyone to come out and enjoy the fall weather, browse the 200 vendor booths, visit the Kid’s Zone and listen to the great entertainment on the main stage,” Gene Jannotti, GWACC executive director, said. “This year all of the available 200 vendor spaces were reserved six weeks ahead of schedule and, unfortunately, we had to turn away vendors who wanted to participate. But we look forward to the thousands of visitors who will there on Sunday.”
The main stage on Elm Street will host several bands and dance demonstrations. The headline group this year will be the Nikki Briar and the SweetBriar Band, the number one country band from New Jersey, performing from 4 p.m. to 5 pm.
“They will also be Asbury Park on October 4th headlining when the Stone Pony goes country,” Jannotti noted.
Festifall will fill the center of Downtown Westfield on Elm Street, Quimby Street, Broad Street and Prospect Street. Tens of thousands are expected to arrive during the course of the day.
“There is plenty of free parking in the various town parking lots and on all the side streets,” Jannotti added.
