Pennsauken Harvest Festival 2017

Pennsauken Community Recreation Complex
Westfield and Bethel Avenues

The Pennsauken Township Public Events Committee, in association with the Pennsauken Firefighters Association, will host the fourth annual Pennsauken Harvest Festival, a celebration of heritage, arts and community.

The free event, held on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Pennsauken Community Recreation Complex on Westfield Ave., will highlight Pennsauken’s diverse cultural identity.

“We’re hoping for clear skies and cool fall temperatures for this showcase of culture and community,” says Pennsauken Mayor Betsy McBride. “We’ll have music and dance acts performing throughout the day, mixing in a variety of demonstrations by the Pennsauken Fire Department, as part of Fire Prevention Month.”

During the Pennsauken Harvest Festival, volunteers will be collecting specific items to help the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Attendees are asked to be as generous as they can for this relief effort. Harvest Festival volunteers will ONLY collect the following urgent/priority items: bottled water; D cell batteries, flashlights, baby and adult diapers, blankets, feminine products, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorants, male and female, battery powered fans, and soap. Cash donations will also be accepted. Please DO NOT BRING any items that are not on this list (no clothing, shoes, etc.).

The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 8; vendors and volunteers are asked to hold both dates. For more information, event planners can be contacted at https://www.facebook.com/PennsaukenHarvestFestival.
