Fall 2014 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival: Sunday, September 28th
If the weather holds out, you can
heads down on phone wander around the streets from 11am to 6pm to see countless of (mostly) out-of-town vendors selling food, artwork, and myriad of other trinkets and tchotchkes.
Big sellers are typically the zeppoles and fried crab cakes – and of course Cake Boss oglers will be around too. Three music stages also set up. The main stage is south of the CVS downtown, a kiddie stage at 3rd Street, and a secondary stage at the north end of the festival between 6th and 7th Streets. Hopefully for festival-goers, the turnout will be high, otherwise, it’ll be a giant bust. This is a rain or shine event.
Some of this year’s featured musical acts include:
- Headlining: Darlene Love
- Maddy Bowes
- Allison Strong
- The Sensational Soul Cruisers
- Garden Street School Band, and several more.
Local Hoboken Singer Maddy Bowes
Lucky for you, one particular act stands out from the rest this year – and that is Maddy Bowes. She kicks off the 7th Street stage at 12:30pm, so that gives you incentive to arrive (and leave) early before the mad rush.
“Maddy Bowes, a fresh faced 16 year old out of Hoboken NJ, debuts with self-composed, musically addictive breakout songs that smash the heart.”
Her singing reel is below. Perhaps she’ll be a nationally recognized singer one day?
