Scotch Plains 2nd Street Block Party 2023

From 1 pm to 5 pm on Saturday, September 9th, E 2nd Street shuts down to automotive traffic between Park Ave and Hunter Ave. Instead, the streets fill up with pedestrians and amazing deals from local businesses and organizations. Come see live demonstrations. Enter one of the multiple contests and, hopefully, win a giveaway. Sample some amazing food. See some fabulous art on display. Talk to one of the many consultants on-site to learn more about services provided by our East 2nd Street businesses. Then, of course, there is the car show. You definitely won’t want to miss that. If Mother Nature decides not to cooperate with this year’s event, organizers plan on hosting a rain date on Sunday, September 10th.

Do you own a classic car that you want to show off at the block party? Now’s your chance to shine. Contact Bob LaCosta by calling (908) 322-6700 x308 or emailing him at blacosta@scotchplainsnj.com.
