A threatening forecast couldn’t dampen the spirits on Main Street as thousands streamed downtown for the New Rochelle Street Fair on Sunday, September 18th. The fourth annual event boasted over 150 vendors, artists and crafters; international cuisine, and inflatable rides for children, and two entertainment stages. Fairgoers enjoyed a day full of live music and performances coordinated by the Council on the Arts as well as a Beer and Wine Garden, hosted by NR Future.

“We wanted to incorporate a little bit of everything- for all ages- at this year’s fair,” said Parks and Recreation Commissioner/Organizer Bill Zimmermann.

The Street Fair was presented by Queen City Sponsor The College of New Rochelle, in partnership with the City of New Rochelle, New Rochelle Parks & Recreation, New Rochelle Downtown BID, the Chamber of Commerce, New Rochelle Council on the Arts, and NR Future. The event was sponsored by Peoples United Bank, News 12, WVOX, the Police Foundation and Volunteer New York!.

City officials along with the Street Fair committee and volunteers joined Mayor Noam Bramson and Kevin Cavanagh, VP for Enrollment Management at The College of New Rochelle, for the traditional ribbon cutting and kick-off on Main Street.

“We were thrilled to support the City of New Rochelle as sponsors of the Annual Street Fair, an event which enabled both city residents and those from neighboring communities to further appreciate all that New Rochelle has to offer,” said Judith Huntington, President of The College of New Rochelle

“New Rochelle’s Street Fair was an enormous success, bringing thousands of residents to our downtown for food, drinks, crafts, and fun. Congratulations and thank you to all the organizers and sponsors. And now on to FoodFest and ArtsFest!,” said Mayor Noam Bramson.
