Pennsauken Prepares For Annual Car Show, Harvest Festival

By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor

In addition to Pennsauken’s summertime 125th birthday bash, the Township is preparing for two of its annual community events: the Car, Bike, and Craft Show and the Harvest Festival. Each event offers a wonderful opportunity for Pennsauken residents – as well as our neighbors from surrounding towns – to come together and celebrate.

Crafters, Vehicles Needed For Car Show

Crafters and vehicles are needed for the Township’s 25th annual Car, Bike, and Craft Show, held on Sunday, Sept. 24, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Held along part of the “Maple Mile,” classic cars and bikes, as well as some of latest models on the market, line up at Pinsetter Bar & Bowl, 7111 Maple Ave., and stretch down towards Union Ave. The event also features the popular “Crafter’s Row,” with vendors offering a wide variety of goods for sale. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 1.

“This is a great event that people look forward to every year. We hope that if you have a car or motorcycle that you love to display, or are a crafter looking for an event with a lot of foot traffic, you’ll consider joining us,” says Elwood Martz, head of Pennsauken’s Parks and Recreation Department. “It goes without saying that the more cars, bikes, and crafters we have, the better our event will be.”

Celebrating Pennsauken’s Rich Culture

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 4:00 p.m. at the Pennsauken Community Recreation Complex on Westfield Ave., will highlight Pennsauken’s diverse cultural identity with a celebration of arts and community.

“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.”

Both vendors and volunteers are needed for this event. 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
