Garwood Rocks Street Fair 2023

  • What: Garwood Rocks Street Fair 2023
  • Where: Center Street
  • When: Sunday, June 4th, 11 am to 6 pm
  • Admission: FREE 

Garwood Rocks Street Fair 2023 

On Sunday, June 4th, Center Street transforms into a pedestrian walkway filled with dozens of vendors showcasing their wares. Various acts perform live on the main stage all day long. Let the kids loose on the inflatables and with other activities specifically geared for them in the Kids Zone. One of the most popular events of the festival, the car show, attracts thousands of people from all over the area each year. You won’t want to miss that either. Don’t worry about going hungry. With several food vendors to choose from, there’s something to satiate everybody’s tastebuds. 

As a reminder, Center Street shuts down to automotive traffic for the day. That means absolutely no parking on Center Street from 5 am to 7 pm on June 4th. Garwood Police will be out patrolling the area during the festival. If you park in a no-parking zone, you will get ticketed and possibly towed. It’s not worth the risk. Just avoid the possibility and park elsewhere for the day. 

Tour de Westfield 2023 

Don’t forget! Tour de Westfield 2023 takes place next weekend (June 11th). If you’ve ever watched the Tour de France and thought, “I would love to do that someday” but lack the actual physical endurance to do so, then the Tour de Westfield may be more your speed. Fortunately, some spots are still open to participate in the tour as well as the bike parade and Tour de Tricks. But you’d better hurry. They could fill up soon. Avoid the headache of flying all the way to France and spending three weeks pushing your body to its limits and beyond. Instead, sign yourself and your family up for the more local (and much easier) Tour de Westfield instead.
