The 28th Annual Brewster Fall Festival, which features food, music, games and more, is being called the “community event of the year.”
This year’s festival, which is organized by the Cultural Arts Coalition, will take place Sunday, Sept. 8 from noon to 5 p.m and is a free, family-friendly event.
The Brewster Fall Festival will feature a huge variety of merchants, community organizations, local businesses, crafters, artists, veterans’ organizations, politicians, historical societies, health and wellness services, jewelry, books, churches, and food vendors, all lining Main Street.
There are also plenty of opportunities for children to enjoy games and entertainment like a dunk tank, face painting, bounce houses and even a pie-eating contest.
Free live music and entertainment will also be featured throughout the day. Guests are encouraged to stop by the Old Town Hall Theater (67 Main Street) to learn about the progress of the theater’s restoration, as funds from this event will directly benefit this process.
Last year’s event attracted more than 125 booths and 4,000 attendees.
“The Brewster Fall Festival is the perfect event for people new and not-so-new to the area to find out about all the amazing things our community has to offer,” said director, Margaret Carey. “We are very fortunate to have a dedicated team of volunteers to help showcase the best of our community while helping raise funds for the restoration of the Old Town Hall Theater at 67 Main Street in Brewster.”
Free parking for this event is available at the Tristate Commuter Lot on Park Street and Morningthorpe Avenue. A trolley service, courtesy of Putnam County, will be available to transport attendees between this parking lot and Main Street throughout the day.
This year’s festival has sponsors including MVP Health Care, EA Test Prep, Confident Homes, Inc., Brewster HamletHub, Master IT Media LLC, Lisi's Towing, OLA Consulting Engineers, Suburban Carting Co., Open Door Family Medical Center and Putnam County Savings Bank.
“The Cultural Arts Coalition has plans to bring even more entertainment, education, and art to our community,” explains Judy Marano, Cultural Arts Coalition President. “Events like the Brewster Fall Festival showcase our community and demonstrate the value of having a cultural hub in the heart of Brewster Village.”
