WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Downtown Alliance and Thomas Edison National Park are holding the 12th annual West Orange Street Fair on Main Street and Lakeside Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on June 6.
There will be more than 100 vendors; a free tour of the Thomas Edison Laboratory; a classic car show; a beer garden; a food court; and a Touch-a-Truck—a kid-centric event where children and adults alike will be able to have a behind the-wheel experience with large municipal and service vehicles.
Fair-goers will also have a chance to "snag everything" from handmade baby dolls to fine jewelry, electric bicycles and gourmet desserts to shish kebobs and homemade ice cream.
“This is our second year sponsoring the street fair,” said Director of the Downtown West Orange Alliance Megan Brill. “The Downtown Alliance wanted to create a signature event that shared our national park and business community with our residents.”
She added, “This year, we have well over 50 different resident businesses and community groups participating. In addition, we have more than 50 crafters and artists from our surrounding community. I have enjoyed meeting many new residents and learning even more about the citizens of West Orange.”
From kid novelties to insurance agents, the street fair will have vendors to fit every age group. Activities at the fair will also include an evening concert featuring live music from area band The Grip Weeds. Numerous sponsors, including MetLife, PSE&G, Regal Bank, The Thomas Edison National Historic Park, The Township of West Orange, Leaf Filter, Evco Mechanical, Vanderhoof and Cabinets Direct USA, made the fair possible. The township asks residents to stay tuned for street closings. For more information and updates click HERE.
