17th Annual Harvest Festival
Sat. Oct. 11, 10am ’til 4pm
As usual, the event will take over Clements Bridge Road from the railroad tracks at Atlantic Avenue
to the traffic light at Gloucester Pike. The volunteers that organize the event have an extraordinary day planned, full of all the great traditions that have made it such an incredible favorite for everyone.
Craft and Food Vendors
There will be blocks and blocks of arts and crafts, gifts, food, novelties, a wandering juggler and socializing galore. As in the past, there will be more than 200 different vendors, so there is sure to be something of interest to every- one including Halloween and Autumn items, jewelry, merchandise, local organizations and businesses, and a wide variety of snacks and desserts —with two separate food court areas to sit down, relax and enjoy a beautiful fall day.
Parking will be provided off-site at Edmund Optical with free shuttle bus transportation to the Festival. There will be an abundance of things to see and do for people of all ages, so you won’t want to miss it!
If you are interested in being a vendor, contact email@example.com for more details.
There will be live entertainment on three stages spread throughout the Festival. Local rock groups will perform in front of the Old Rail Tavern, and the main stage in front of the B-Corner Market will feature a variety of local vocalists and bands.
The Kids’ Section will be located in the municipal parking lot at 2d & Tren- ton Avenue, behind the First Methodist Church. The inflatable bounces are always a big hit and will be back again. You will also find the traditions that have been favorites for many years – petting zoo, hayride, pony rides, and other fun activities. There will be a stage located in this area with entertainment for the younger ones, too.
Beer & Food Garden
The Barrington Fire Co. #1 will be hosting their popular beer and food garden on the grounds of the firehouse at 2nd & Haines Avenue from noon till 8pm.
Classic Car Show
For the 9th year, Clements Bridge Road from Gloucester Pike to Third Avenue will be a walk down memory lane as eye-popping restored and customized cars from down through the years will be on display. Just to add to the flavor, a DJ will be spin- ning oldies.
There will be an even bigger and better Basket Auction this year with lots of fantastic prizes. Clubs and organizations, as well as the Festival vendors, participate by donating valuable prizes of all kinds. The prizes are gathered into gift bags, and you drop your tickets into numbered buckets to win one.
