Following the overwhelming response and success of previous Girls’ Night Out events since 2011, it is anticipated that more than 1,600 women will register and many more will attend.

“The evening has become a semi-annual event that residents and local business owners look forward to,” noted Sherry Cronin, Executive Director of the DWC. “The event continues to grow in popularity—both for the participants and the number of involved businesses. In the Spring, 33 percent of the ladies came from Westfield, while 153 New Jersey towns and five other states were represented. We hope that this time the turnout is as large and diverse.”

Gifts and giveaways have not been disclosed yet, but the entertainment is confirmed to be three live musical performers -- Watson led by Phil Rinaldi, Michael Doyle, and Joe Taino will be entertaining outdoors. Once again the 'Mens' Night Out' component of Girls' Night Out will be present, featuring chivalrous local dignitaries and volunteers greeting women at the event and opening doors for them outside downtown shops.  

The registration location will be at 128 Elm St. (next door to Westfield Imaging and across the street from Acquaviva Restaurant). Details about the participating businesses and their specials will be available soon at www.westfieldtoday.com/girlsnightout. For more information, contact the DWC at 908.789.9444.
