This fun, family-friendly outdoor event is held annually each May on the blocked-off streets of downtown Bordentown City, New Jersey; mainly Farnsworth Avenue, Walnut Street, and Crosswicks Street. 12x15 Spaces are assigned on a first come-first served basis according to when your application and payment are received, although we do try to accommodate our long-time vendors in the same spaces each year. The Street Fair Committee reserves the right to approve menu items to limit duplication.
Prior to the event you will be mailed your assigned space number(s) and tag for entering the street. Set up time is 7 am - 9 am each day; Saturday and Sunday. No vehicles will be allowed on the street for set up after 9 am unless an approved food truck. Move vehicle and self park on side streets. Event time is 10 am - 4 pm each day weather permitting. Vehicles will be allowed back onto the street after 4 pm for breakdown. Vendors are responsible to bring their own tables and set up inside their space and must break down each day. Approved generators only are permitted on Farnsworth Avenue. It is the responsibility of the Food Vendor to secure electricity/water if needed. Canopies are permitted, sandbags or weights are strongly encouraged. Cancellation due to inclement weather is at the sole discretion of the Street Fair Committee. NO RAIN DATES - NO REFUNDS.
You must have your New Jersey Sales Tax Certificate with you both days. Food Vendors must conform to all Burlington County fire and health codes and any new pandemic-related state/local food handling or product sampling regulations. Loud music or solicitation outside of your assigned space(s) is not permitted. Failure to show up for both days may disqualify you from participation in future shows.
