Families and fun-seekers shouldn’t miss this unique event, featuring over 340 vendors with something for everyone ― jewelry, art, photography, collectibles, antiques, quality handmade crafts, unique gifts and much more. Not to mention the great shops and restaurants that will be participating with special offers. The fair will also feature live entertainment, plus great food, outdoor dining and activities for the kids.
NEW THIS YEAR: kids of all ages can join the circus for a day, taking in Amazing Grace CIRCUS! shows and trying out tightwire walking, silk climbing and juggling with help from the circus performers. The free shows are set for 1:00pm and 3:00pm in Memorial Park.* Popcorn, cotton candy and juggling equipment will be available for purchase to complete the circus experience.

While grown-ups groove to the music, the fair will offer plenty for the younger set, with kids’ games and bouncy houses in the Main Street parking lot.
Special offerings from local merchants, service providers and not-for-profits will add zest, as well as interesting opportunities for practical shoppers. Shoppers and foodies should look for Nyack Chamber member restaurants and merchants offering enticing mid-week “Here All Year” specials aimed at bringing visitors back to explore the many charms of this eclectic village.
“SpringFest is a great tradition in Nyack,” says Scott Baird, President of the Nyack Chamber. “For 30 years, this fair has marked the beginning of the warm season’s vibrant, outdoor cultural life in Nyack. It speaks volumes about our Village: Nyack is a great place to live, work, do business — and have fun.”
