WEST ORANGE, NJ — The Downtown Street Fair has become a springtime favorite in West Orange.

After 13 years, planners of the Saturday, June 3 event have the logistics all ironed out, even with two major construction projects under way along the Main Street corridor.

“This is a big fair- lots of stuff to coordinate,” said Megan Brill, executive director of the Downtown West Orange Alliance.

Construction is well under way at the Edison Battery Factory and Community House — but the work will have no impact on this year's layout, says Brill.

“These projects will really enhance the Main Street corridor,” said Brill. “Residents who stop by the fair will be excited when they see how it’s all coming together.”

Meanwhile, Main Street stores and shops will be open for business.

The fair starts at Main Street and Lakeside Avenue and begins at 11 a.m.
There will be craft vendors — and like last year — food vendors will be spread along the corridor.

There will be some new activities, too, such as street performers, zip lines and parachute rides.

Parking for the fair can be found at 80 Main St., 59 Main St. and Washington Elementary School.

The fair is held in conjunction with the Thomas Edison National Historic Park and Thomas Edison Day, which includes a free tour of the museum. For more information on the street fair, visit www.downtownwo.com.
