The Moorestown Business Association (MBA) will host its annual Main Street celebration, Moorestown Day, on Saturday, June 3, at 9 a.m.
The township’s special event will feature more than 100 vendors; live music, including the Moorestown High School Madrigals; face painting; and food.
This year’s co-chairs are Nika Corbett, owner of Curate Noir in the Moorestown Mall, and Bridget Wiese, vice president and senior manager of Republic Bank in Moorestown.
“The orchestration of it has been good because it’s a well-oiled machine,” said Corbett, a MBA board member with a background in marketing and vendor development.
“Everything has its challenges every day, but it’s going to be a great event,” she added. “I thought it would be a good opportunity to jump in and help out and use the skills that I use on a daily basis.”
Moorestown Day will take place in the area of Main between Chester Avenue and Church Street, the latter closed to traffic. Attendees can park in the township’s municipal lot and adjacent streets, or take a shuttle from the Lincoln Tech lot on Route 38.
The event will feature sidewalk sales, Main Street merchants and restaurants with special sales and menus and live performances.
Wiese has been a MBA board member for almost two years. Like Corbett, she was up for the challenge of planning the event.
“It does take a village: It’s not just two people, it’s the entire board,” she noted. “There are definitely a lot of moving parts, from lining up performances to having the bounce house lined up for the children, in addition to making sure we have police present …
“Everything you can imagine.”

“Come out and see what the community is doing,” Corbett said of the event. “Every year, it (Moorestown Day) just gets better and better. There’s no way you won’t be there and not see somebody that you know … You may find out that your neighbor is a business owner.”
“It’s a great day where you can support local businesses whether you’re dining or shopping, and it’s just a nice community event,” Wiese said. “I’m hoping that people come to Moorestown and maybe spot a new business or something they haven’t seen before, and that will bring them back with their friends and family on another day.”
