Fanwood Fanjam Summer Street Fair 2023

Yes, we love those summer days. But the summer nights get even better. Westfield hosts their Sweet Sounds Downtown Music Festival during July and August. And Scotch Plains brings its Summer Concert Series to the public throughout July. Not to be outdone, officials want to welcome you to the Fanwood Fanjam Summer Street Fair just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Fanwood Fanjam Summer Street Fair 2023

On the second Sunday in July, celebrate summer in La Grande Park. Starting at 11 am, dozens of local vendors and craftsmen fill the park with their exceptional handiwork. Here, you’ll find leather goods, woodwork, blown glass, photographs, fine art, handmade jewelry, and more. Make sure you mosey on over to the classic car show, too. Dozens of hot rods, rat rods, street racers, and good ol’ American muscle cars will be on display that would make any car enthusiast drool with envy. Let the kids run themselves ragged in the Kids Zone while you shop. Of course, food trucks keep everyone’s belly full.

Live Entertainment

The main stage plays host to live music all afternoon. First, the festivities kick off with Macho Men and their classic and punk rock music at noon. Higher Ground continues your musical journey at 12:30 pm with their take on oldies and newer rock. After that, get down with the funk, pop, and soul stylings of The Funktown Band at 2 pm. At 3:30 pm, Christina and the Gents perform rock, pop, and metal hits. Finally, Radio Petty closes out the evening with their tribute to Tom Petty’s music at 5:30 pm.
