Bordentown Street Fair returns for 38th year this weekend

Merchants from Bordertown’s historic downtown will market their wares along Farnsworth Ave. for the 38th annual Bordertown Street Fair on May 16 and 17.
 
Attendance is expected to top 10,000 for the free event.
 
Local restaurants will also be serving up tasty treats, but it’s the artisans and crafters that really draw the crowds.  Over 200 craft vendors will be participating in this year’s fair.
 
A dedicated Kids Corner will be located on Walnut St. with face painting, temporary air brush tattoos, inflatables, sand art and pony rides.  
 

Organizers would prefer that folks leave their pets at home.  If you insist on bringing your dog, he/she must be muzzled and leashed at all times. It’s a town ordinance.

Parking is available at Carlslakes Community Center (209 Crosswicks Rd.) and St. Mary’s Church (45 Crosswicks Rd.).  A free shuttle bus will run between the Bordertown station on Nj Transit’s River Line to the community center and other stops near the fair.
