Medford Village’s flower lined Main Street will be ready to welcome the thousands of visitors who come to enjoy the festivities as the annual Art, Wine & Music Festival returns to mark the start of summer on Sunday afternoon, June 7th, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tents filled with fine arts, colorful crafts, fine wine, craft beer and good food will be on hand as several South Jersey wineries and a local brewery will be interspersed between the arts and crafts booths and local bands will play music throughout the afternoon.

 

The whole family will be able to enjoy activities such as face painters, caricature artists, balloon artists, hula-hoop performers and magic tricks. This year an even larger collection of prize classic autos from the Medford Lakes Corvette Club will occupy south Main Street. More than 4,000 visitors are expected to attend this annual event presented by the Medford Business Association, the Medford Arts Center, and ShopRite of Medford.

               

A broad array of beautiful paintings and pottery, plus handcrafted jewelry, glass, wood and fabric crafts will be available. More than 30 artists, photographers and crafters from throughout New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania will gather to show their treasures.

               

Several musical groups will be located on porches up and down Main Street, providing live music from rock to pop to bluegrass and folk tunes. Featured bands include Lost in Brunswick, Branin Road, M-Town Jazz Jam, Mike Kaufman, Ted Trump, and more.

           

A variety of food will be available along the street. Braddock’s Restaurant and The Pop Shop will be open and food vendors featuring salads and wraps, hot dogs, burgers, barbeque and ice cream will be strategically located.

               

Handicapped parking will be available in the Cranberry Hall parking lot (enter from Branch Street) or the public lot behind the Stagecoach Stop (enter from west end of Union Street), as well as other Village parking lots nearby.
