It’s the penultimate street fair of the year. And it’ll be a beaut. The forecast calls for sunny skies and 72 degree temps. Plus, as always, live music and 300+ vendors. The fair takes place from 10a-5p and is sponsored by the Nyack Chamber of Commerce.
Kids of all ages can join the circus for a day, at the Amazing Grace CIRCUS! demonstrations in Memorial Park. Circus Family Fun Day includes tightwire walking, unicycles, juggling, human pyramids and more – all with performances and help from the circus performers.
Sunday’s Street Fair features live bands, great food, kid rides and hundreds of vendors offering crafts and jewelry. Dogs, however, are not allowed at Nyack Street Fairs.
Live musical entertainment from 11a-5p includes:
11a Jeff Rubin — acoustic guitarist, formerly of Oingo Boingo
1p Jeff Doctorow – acoustic guitar
2:30p Dead Meat — Grateful Dead tribute band
4p Richie Ranno’s All Starz
Nyack’s street fairs are known for their combination of merchandise for all tastes and pocketbooks, arts, crafts, food, entertainment, located along Main Street and Broadway in the Village of Nyack, on the west bank of the Hudson River just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge.
