Fall Arts & Music Festival: September 25th

Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival: September 25, 2011

Here we go again! Rain or shine, the Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival is set to commence this Sunday, September 25th from 11am to 6pm.

Washington Street will be closed from Observer Highway to 7th Street, as hundreds of vendors set up to sell food, crafts, jewelry, artwork and more. Three performance areas: The main stage south of Newark Street downtown, one in-between 6th & 7th, and the kids stage near 3rd Street.

Notable musical acts include:

The Jersey Follettes set to make their debut in Hoboken

The one group that should probably get the most attention is The Jersey Follettes.

They perform at the main stage downtown at 12:00pm noon.

Hoboken resident Noelle Tate started The Jersey Follettes – which is a collection of beautiful, professional and talented female vocal performers from across the state of New Jersey. Genuine “Jersey Girls,” so to say!

Rather than fist-bumping housewives or cake baking debacles, The Jersey Follettes have a strong desire to show off what New Jersey is REALLY like: Fun, fabulous, classy and exciting!

So if you had to pick only one performance worth seeing – please make an effort to check out The Jersey Follettes!

Below is a “sneak preview” of the Jersey Follettes rehearsing:

Butt sniffer. I said “festival”, not “arts and crafts festival”.

And sure, make it last a week. Why not.[quote comment=”210874″]uptown festival?

How come the festival never comes uptown? There are businesses up here. They should expand a block or two at a time and gradually bring it all the way up Washington St. [quote comment=”210839″]I will make an effort to see these ladies, because some of them are quite sweet![/quote]

They can barely fill the blocks they currently use and resort to doubling up on a lot of offerings. Do we really need any more sausage & peppers/arepas/zeppole/corn-on-a-stick booths? No.

It’s downtown because it’s closer to public transportation hubs (PATH, train, buses, etc.) so that out-of-towners can check it out as well. Plus the PD is located downtown, which might make things easier for crowd control. Also, while there might be businesses uptown, but there aren’t as many as there are downtown. Finally, as an uptown resident, I am absolutely in favor of keeping it downtown. We don’t need the noise, the garbage, etc. We’re already up to our ears in dog-bombs.

There is transportation uptown too – the 14th street ferry, and coming from the city people can take the 126 bus and get off on 14th street. PATH is not the only way into town. And for one day, you can tolerate the noise. An expansion would allow for more vendors to set up and give uptown businesses a needed boost. On another note, given that uptown is one of the last parts of town with space for development, you better get used to the noise, there’s going to be a lot more of it in the future. Toll Bros. continues to build, the Willow& 14th Street site is underway, and the Rockefeller Group didn’t pick up all those uptown property parcels just to have them sit idling in their portfolio. I just hope its not overdeveloped with all the wrong or redundant types of businesses. With all this space up here, there’s no reason why a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s couldn’t come in to town, not more condos. I agree with you on dog bombs. The city needs to get inspectors out there and start fining people for not picking up after their pooches.
