As the season changes and the weather starts to cool, the streets of Haddonfield will be covered with the brown, red and gold leaves of trees signaling fall is here. The streets will also be filled with residents and visitors this fall as Haddonfield’s Fall Festival and Juried Craft Show will once again be held in celebration of the autumn season and local community organizations.

Haddonfield’s Fall Festival and Juried Craft Show will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The day-long festival features a variety of Haddonfield’s community groups and more than 100 crafters who will be lined up along Kings Highway, between Haddon Avenue and the PATCO speedline, as well as Tanner Street.

“I think it is a great place to start holiday shopping and a wonderful opportunity to buy directly from local artists. It’s also a great way to learn more about what is going on in Haddonfield and the different community groups in town,” Marcy Boroff, craft director, said.

Haddonfield’s Fall Festival and Juried Craft Show started as a way to highlight local community nonprofit organizations. Due to its success, the addition of the Juried Craft Show was added to highlight local artists as well.

“It is a borough event that highlights Haddonfield’s many nonprofits and local artists and crafters. It’s a way for all the community groups to come out and let people know what is going on,” Boroff said.

Participating organizations include area non-profits as well as borough associations and committees. Kings Highway will remain open to vehicular traffic throughout the day.

The various artisan tents will be set up along Tanner Street, which will be closed to vehicular traffic during the festival. Artisan tents include florals, seasonal items, glass, wool, pottery, clothing and other handcrafted items from artists near and far.

“It is another way for artists to meet with their customers. Come and meet the artists. See how they make their work, what they do and connect with the artists,” Boroff said.

The event will also feature a musical performance by the Pick-Up Band at Grace Church at 11 a.m.; Garaguso’s Classical Martial Arts demonstration in front of the Kings Court Gazebo at noon; carriage rides from noon to 3 p.m.; and DJ Frank Staff playing music in the Gazebo at Kings Court.

Back again this year is scarecrow making presented by the Junior Women’s Club of Haddon Fortnightly, located in Kings Court. The Lions Pancake Breakfast will take place at the First Baptist Church of Haddonfield from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. The Lions Sightmobile will also be featured throughout the festival.

The Haddonfield Farmers Market will continue to run throughout the festival and be held on Kings Highway between Haddon Avenue and Borough Hall.

If interested shoppers come to the Haddonfield Information Center in Kings Court between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., they will have the opportunity to “pick your own discount” for gift certificates. Visitors can pick from a fishbowl to reveal their discount for gift certificates. There is one discount per person.

The rain date for the Haddonfield Fall Festival and Craft Show is Sunday, Oct. 18 from noon to 5 p.m.

“Come out and meet the artists and learn what is going on in Haddonfield,” Boroff said.
