Roxbury Sidewalk Festival

Spring is just around the corner and the Roxbury Sidewalk Committee is working hard putting together this year’s Famous Roxbury Sidewalk Festival ’11.  The festival will be held on Saturday, July 2nd, 2011 and promises to be bigger and better then ever.  We will continue to have an assortment of children’s activities, live music, crafters, artisans and summer fare.  Our festival will begin at 10:00 am and run until 4pm.  In addition this year, we will continue the festivities with a Down-home Fourth July Parade, Live Music in the Park for picnicking, and Children’s Activities on the Roxbury Central School lawn.  As last year’s attendance is evidence, as our Sidewalk Festival draws a wide and diverse crowd.

We have also added several improvements such as port-o-johns, parking and additional food vendors.  Each year the Roxbury Sidewalk Festival depends on its talented artists, artisans, crafters and vendors to make this event a success.
