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 think I did :). But knowing myself, I likely became distracted by a passing dog or baked goods.

Speaking of baked goods, that “Sassy” baked goods booth offered great stuff at decent prices. Excellent sugar cookies!

Fun festival despite the rain. LOVED the artwork, this year. Keep it up!

The festival was your typical Arts & Musical festival. Nothing different, but still enjoyable. Seemed a little less crowded than usual, even when the rain ended.

I find the festival great for 1) buying kids’ hair ribbons and 2) buying shampoo from outside the hair salon on 5th & Wash (the prices used to be insanely great – not as good anymore, but still a good deal).

Lots of people walking the festival with red “Raia for Mayor” shirts. Lots of Corzine signs.

This is a big special FUCK YOU for all the people honking around Washington tonight. There was a god damn street fair there earlier today! Relax, Fuck!!! NYC enforces honking citations, so why can’t this town starting doing the same. Booom another honk as I’m writing this. F—–UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Amen. We could reap tons of dollars through simply fining the impatient jack-offs.

What the hell do drivers expect will happen after a festival?

Duh.

Unless the police in this town have heads and ears that can turn like the exorcist how the hell can they tell who’s honking? I thought the posts on this site were supposed to be respectful, nice language, Riggleman.

Someone the police in NYC can give tickets for honking, are Hoboken police that much worse?

I don’t agree with language Riggleman used, some words are less than productive.
