Hoboken’s Arts & Music Festival, which last happened in May of this year, was due to kick off this Sunday, October 2nd on Washington Street from Observer Highway to 7th Street. Unfortunately, this free event — which usually includes 300 artists, crafters, makers, local businesses, and food vendors — has been canceled by the City due to inclement weather, per a Nixle update. The remnants of Hurricane Ian are expected to hit the Hoboken area in the early hours of Saturday morning and continue throughout Sunday (be sure to check out our flooding article to prepare). It could bring gusts of wind up to 30 miles an hour. There will still, however, be some musical performances that have now been moved indoors to the Hoboken High School.

In place of the usual outdoor event, the City has relocated two of the free musical performance to the auditorium at Hoboken High School at 800 Clinton Street. Freedy Johnston will perform from 3PM to 4PM and Alejandro Escovedo and the Rant Band will perform from 4:30PM to 5:45PM on Sunday, October 2nd. Doors will open at 2:30PM.

The City had previously announced that Alejandro Escovedo is “a Mexican-American kid with Texas roots and California raising, taking on immigration issues in two continents with an Italian band.” What’s more, he’s even collaborated with the one and only Bruce Springsteen.

Per TapInto, this was supposed to be the festival’s 27th year.
