We’re not wishing summer away, (and we’ve got all the summer content to prove it) BUT a highly-anticipated Hoboken event just announced its fall 2023 dates, and locals are rightfully excited about it. The Hoboken Fall Arts + Music Festival returns on Sunday, October 1st on Washington Street, between Observer Highway and Seventh Street. From 11AM – 6PM, residents can peruse displays + sales from artists, crafters, food vendors, and local businesses. Read on to learn more about the Fall Arts + Music Festival happening this year in Hoboken.
On Sunday, October 1st, Washington Street (from Observer Highway to Seventh Street) will be blocked off for local artisans, food vendors, and businesses to promote their goods and services at the Fall Arts + Music Festival. Locals can shop, browse, and peruse from 11AM – 6PM.
Being the arts and *music* festival, there will also be two stages of live musical performances between Sixth + Seventh Streets on Washington Street. Although the lineup hasn’t been released yet, some previous performers have included All Saints Day School + BOLD Arts Dancers, Hudson City Rats, The Brooklyners, and other local performers.
Per the City of Hoboken, “The Hoboken Spring Arts & Music Festival is funded in part by a grant from the NJ Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism and sponsored by Burgiss, Ironstate, Veolia, Wonder Lofts Hoboken, This Is It Productions, The Port Authority of New York + New Jersey, and WFUV.”
Right now, there are spaces available for local artists, crafters, and food vendors to secure spots for the event. Additionally, volunteers are needed to help with vendor setup on the morning of the event. For information, email Cultural Affairs Administrator Geri Fallo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
