The 2009 Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival is Sunday, September 27th.

Here’s a video from the Fall 2008 festival

What goes on at this festival?

  • Fine (that’s entirely subjective) “artists” are located between 2nd & 3rd Street. Oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, sculpture, mixed media, “things that make you go hmmm,” etc.
  • “Kids with A.D.D.” area on 3rd street with rides, games, creative activities, ponies, petting zoo (make sure you’re current on all shots), magic show (double check your wallet), face painting, clowns (NOT including city hall variety), balloons, live performances, etc.
  • Crafters display / sell handmade: pottery, metalwork, wood items, furniture, blown & fused glass, quilts, household items made from recycled materials, cementware, batik clothing, hand painted furniture, candles, jewelry, dried florals, soaps & lotions and many more very odd items.
  • Food: Lots of great food throughout the fair. (Some) Hoboken restaurants will set up street cafes offering an eclectic variety of international foods such as: Thai, Indian, Greek, French, Mexican, Cajun and Italian. However MOST food comes from NON-Hoboken businesses.

Schedule and performers to come soon!

I wonder if the crowd will be smaller since Yom Kippur starts at sunset.

You most likely will have to shop around to find the same vendor as these “slots” are not permanently designated. They’re assigned as vendors apply to sell wares.

Has the political upheaval had any effect on the folks at Cultural Affairs, who facilitate this festival?
