Westfield Spring Fling 2024

So far, we’ve had a pretty wet spring. But that won’t deter this year’s celebration: Westfield Spring Fling 2024. Organizers plan on holding this event come rain or shine.

  • What: Westfield Spring Fling 2024
  • Where: Downtown Westfield
  • When: Sunday, May 5th, 10 am to 5  pm
  • Admission: FREE

Westfield Spring Fling 2024

This year’s Spring Fling happens this Sunday, May 5th. According to the weatherman, it looks like we may experience a damp Sunday. So, make sure that you check the weather report before you leave home. You might need to add a jacket and umbrella to your ensemble to stay dry. But it still sounds like a lot of fun.

Live entertainment for the day includes Big Horse Band and Monkey Wrench. They perform on the Quimby Street stage in the afternoon. Dozens of local vendors line the streets all day long selling clothing, accessories, jewelry, artwork, leather goods, and more.

You definitely won’t want to skip on the food vendors either. Between Cousins Maine Lobster, The Empanada Truck, and The Big Bad Cookie Company are only a few of the more than 20 food vendors keeping folks fed at the festival. Fortunately, organizers added tables and chairs to make eating a bit easier this year.

Also, this year’s event includes dinosaurs. While not life-size, per se, the animatronics and puppetry used to operate these prehistoric beasts make them incredibly life-like. Don’t be surprised if you see a velociraptor or mini-T-Rex saunter up and say “hi” while you wander around the downtown area. Fortunately, though, these dinosaurs do not bite. So, you’re safe.

Westfield Girls’ Night Out

It’s not too late to sign up for Westfield’s Girls’ Night Out 2024. Admission costs nothing. But you still need to register to participate. It takes place this upcoming Thursday, May 9th from 5 pm to 9 pm. Several downtown businesses offer special promos, discounts, and possibly a glass of champagne or two for all shoppers during this time. This year’s theme? The ’80s. Peg your jeans. Pull on the lace gloves. Grab the Aqua Net and teasing combs, ladies. Like, oh my god. This Thursday, Downtown Westfield is going to be totally tubular to the max.

I am grateful to all who entrusted me with your life-changing real estate moves and to all who referred me to your family and friends!
