The 24th Annual Cheshire Fall Festival and Marketplace will be held on Saturday, September 8th at Bartlem Park. The craft show opens at 10:00 a.m. and the main event will begin at 11:00 a.m. The fireworks will start at approximately 8:30 p.m.
“Every year the community support for the Fall Festival grows, and vendor participation was at an all-time high last year. Through the hard work of our festival committee, I anticipate an even bigger event this year,” said Sheldon Dill, president of the Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.
The Fall Festival and Marketplace attractions will include: business and community booths, a food court, the farmers market, a hot dog eating contest, an arts and craft show, a classic car show, the YMCA Kids Zone, entertainment including music by local musicians, and the Kiwanis Carnival.
A late addition to the festivities is a free concert by Aztec Two Step on Friday, Sept. 7, at 7:30 p.m.
On Saturday, the extremely popular local band, Eight to the Bar, will perform on the main stage from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Saturday evening fireworks follow the concert and will again be a major attraction of the event.
The Cheshire Marketplace is presented by the Cheshire Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Town of Cheshire.
