The waning of summer only means one fun thing: FALL FESTIVALS! Read below to see what’s in store for Upper West Siders in the months of September and October.
The one that everyone looks forward to happens on the UWS at Lincoln Center on the second and third weekends in September, this year the 9th and 10th, and the 16th and 17th. Perfectly timed so that you can still have that Labor Day getaway, and then have two weekends (4 days) to catch the cream of the crop craftsman/crafts-people – this particular fair is also an award-winning event (Who’d a thunk they’d give out awards for a fall festival.) www.craftsatlincoln.org
41st Annual Columbus Avenue Festival, sponsored by the West Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, hosts its annual street fair on Sunday, September 17th and welcomes craftspeople, food vendors, but is also a shout-out to the local businesses who take part. Besides showing visitors a good time, this event also raises funds for local not-for profits. www.westmanhattanchamber.org/festivals
