2016 Collingswood May Fair photos

This year’s Collingswood May Fair stretched on Haddon Avenue from Zane Avenue to Cuthbert Boulevard.  Collingswood is located in Camden County in southern New Jersey. 

What started out as a “clothesline art exhibit” in 1979 this festival has expanded to become one of the biggest events in the area with more than 200 artists, crafters and vendors displaying their creations in a juried show.

Despite the 90-degree weather an estimated 55,000 people attended this year’s ‘one-mile stretch’ on Haddon Avenue enjoying the art, music and different activities set up for adults and kids. 

Multiple stages offered live music featured blues, rock, folk and more. Collingswood Farmers Market offered Jersey Fresh produce, flowers and baked goods. Visitors were also able to savor food from several Food Courts as well as downtown restaurants and cafes.
