There are 3 great events this weekend in Bergen County. Weekends will be busier in the future as we move further into the Fall. Because school is open and people are back from their vacations, event planners can count on a crowd. It seems like no one is around at the end of August.
Here’s what we have – a classic car show, carnival and Bergen County’s Food & Wine Festival.
Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce 27th Annual Car Show
Come to Ridgewood tonight for a fun time. It’s the 27th Annual Car Show put on by the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce. Streets are closed to traffic from 6 to 9 tonight. As a result, you have a walking mall throughout the entire downtown.
Shops will be open too along with Ridgewood’s many fine restaurants. Ridgewood has the biggest business district in Bergen County. It’s known for it’s many fine shops and amazing restaurants. So come tonight, stroll through beautiful classic cars, do some shopping and have a great dinner. Sounds like a perfect date night to me!
St Anthony’s Orthodox Church Bergen Street Fest
St Anthony’s Orthodox Church in Bergenfield is putting on a major carnival at the Teaneck Armory grounds (1799 Teaneck Rd in Teaneck). Because this is a true carnival, there’s rides, food trucks, music and games. While it began last night, it runs through Sunday.
One ticket buys you all the rides too. Hours are today 6-9, Saturday 11-9 and Sunday 11-7. I’m also wondering if the Church will have it’s own food stand. People come from all around for it’s international food events. I guess you’ll just have to go and find out!
Bergen County’s Food and Wine Festival
Bergen County’s Food and Wine Festival is a big deal. Because it is so big, it’s held at the Westfield Garden State Plaza. This is a fund raiser for the Bergen County 200 Club which supports law enforcement and 1st responder families.
Tickets are $70 and this event is from 12 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday. While I realize this is a bit expensive, you also get a lot for your $70 and it’s for a great cause. A large group of local restaurants put out their very best. In addition there’s craft beers fine wines you can drink or taste and live entertainment throughout the entire time.
So this is what I have for you. I apologize for being so late on this but it’s been a very crazy week.
