Among some of the businesses supporting the community through the Street Fair are premier sponsor The Calanda Family, Paul Miller, ShopRite, Caldwell University, Cloverleaf Tavern, Essex County College, Jonathan Barrett, Paul Ippolito-Dancy Memorial, Kearny Bank, BCB Fairfield Community Bank and many more. 

The First Presbyterian Church at Caldwell will also offer jazz music on the church lawn from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday as well as pumpkin painting and temporary tattoos from noon to 3 p.m. for the kids.

At 7:30 p.m., the church will kick off a season of Jazz & Poetry at Caldwell, which will continue on the first Sunday of each month, October through May. Although the service is held in the sanctuary, it is a community event that is open to everyone – those who would come for an experience of worship, and those who would simply come to enjoy music and poetry.
