New & Exciting Activities and Events to Encourage Community Participation
Although summer has just begun, the Cultural Arts Coalition is busy planning the Brewster Fall Festival (formerly known as Brewster Founders Day). This annual event will be held on September 9, 2018 on Main Street in Brewster. Registration for booths at the event is live at www.BrewsterFallFestival.com.
“The event will focus on our community and the wonderful organizations, businesses and people who serve them,” states co-chair Judy Marano, “The Brewster Fall Festival is designed to bring our community together for a day of fun, education and colaboration.”
Vendors, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to participate by purchasing a booth space. The Village of Brewster will close Main Street and booths will line both sides of street. Discounts are available for those in Brewster, Patterson, Southeast and Putnam Lake, 2018 Brewster Chamber Members and not-for-profit organizations.
At a recent interest meeting held at the Studio Around the Corner, community members were invited to share their ideas and experiences to enhance the event. Those in attendance not only offered great ways to engage the community but also volunteer their time to join the committee and assist with the plans and at the day of the event.
Rebecca Rabinowitz, local business owner of CPREd, offered the suggestion of giving the event a country feel by adding old-fashion games like three-legged races, potato sack and a pie-eating contest. Nancy Hack of the Landmarks Preservation Society of Southeast plans to offer historical activities at the Walter Brewster House. Mary Bomba stated that the event was instrumental in her finding out about the community when she moved into town a few years ago and is now helping to continue the tradition by volunteering in the pre-event planning and helping at the Brewster-Carmel Garden Club booth.
“The community is embracing the new structure of the Brewster Fall Festival,” states co-chair Margaret Carey, “We are keeping the tried and true spirit of the event and adding some historical elements, old fashion games, pony rides, contemporary music and new activities. It will be an event not to be missed!”
