Manasquan’s annual Fall Festival set for this weekend


MANASQUAN —The Manasquan Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for its 15th annual Fall Festival this weekend, featuring a variety of activities for residents of all ages to enjoy.

The festival will be held in Squan Plaza from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26, with a rain date scheduled for the following day on Sept. 27.

“It’ll just be a nice day to come out and visit with the community. It’s a great time,” said Chamber of Commerce Board Director Pam Patullo, who organizes the event.


The festival will include a craft show of more than 40 vendors with an assortment of clothing, jewelry, artwork, home decor and other wares — a great opportunity to get a head start on gifts for the upcoming holiday season.

The day will also feature live music, food, ice cream and, for the younger attendees, a pumpkin painting area.

The festival will be a safe event that adheres to COVID-19 guidelines, Ms. Patullo said. She added that social distancing and use of face coverings will be required, and there will be plenty of hand sanitizer available.
