The 25th annual Fall Arts & Music Festival will take place Sunday, September 30 from 11-6 p.m. along Washington Street from Observer Highway to 7th Street.

More than 200 artists, crafters, photographers, food vendors, local businesses, and more will have booths set up along the street. There will also be three stages set up with live music, with a headline performance by The Smithereens with guest vocalist Marshal Crenshaw.

“The 25th anniversary makes this year’s Fall Arts & Music Festival particularly special,” said Hoboken Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “I’m looking forward to enjoying the day, showcasing the best of Hoboken’s arts community and the region. I encourage every resident and visitor to come out and experience all that Hoboken has to offer.”
