East Hampton Chamber of Commerce
Saturday October 20, 10 AM to 5 PM – Free!
The East Hampton Chamber of Commerce will host its Second Annual Fall Festival in Herrick Park in late October. There will be over 50 booths set up in the downtown park on Saturday, October 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. where local artists, shopkeepers and over 20 non-profits can display their wares and information. Dance or listen to live music all day – from bluegrass to blues. Acts include the Hoo Doo Loungers, the East Hampton Bluegrass All Stars, Steven Tekulsky’s the Judge and the Jury Americana Experience and the East Hampton High School Jazz Band. There’s plenty for kids and families too – the YMCA sponsored jumping castle and climbing wall; art projects sponsored by the East End Children’s Museum in the gazebo; a costume parade at noon for kids and parents; and a haunted pumpkin patch and free pumpkin carving station. The Art Nanny will help kids of all ages make art projects and the playground at Herrick Park will be open all day. There will be a live mural painting; see and crawl on antique fire trucks, boats and other emergency vehicles on display. David and Jean Stiles will be building a “Magical Tree House” in Herrick Park for children to play on and explore, with all materials supplied by Riverhead Building Supply. Food offerings include fresh lobster rolls from Buoy One; wood-fired pizza from Around the Fire; hand-made pretzels from Knot of this World; and tasty offerings from Noah’s on the Road. There’ll be Kona Ice to help gatherers cool off and Mr. Softee as well. Village eateries will be open all day and offering specials through the New York State Craft Beverages Program. Participating non-profits include the Guild Hall Gift Shop; the Hamptons International Film Festival’s “garage sale” featuring collectible movie poster and merchandise from past years; the East Hampton Historical Society and LVIS. Sponsored by the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director Steven Ringel states, “Building on last year’s success, we’re expecting a crowd in the Village. It’s a true community event to celebrate Fall and the harvest season, as well as to showcase our wonderful businesses and organizations.” Sponsors to date include DiscoverLI, People’s United Bank, Halstead Real Estate, The Independent, Tesla and BK Builders.
