Hamilton Fall Festival
September 18 @ 12:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Join the Hamilton Fall Festival this Sunday! A major highlight of this event will be a live performance by the Satch Kerans Band and an exciting pop-up beer and wine garden located on the corner of Willow and Railroad Avenues co-hosted by Essex County Brewing and Ipswich-based business, Cellar Door. At 12:00 P.M., The Hamilton Mothers Club is hosting a free kids Magic Show on Railroad Avenue, and at 2:45PM Sweet Paws Rescue hosts a Paw-Rade, an exciting and extremely adorable parade of dogs in costume – everyone with a dog is invited to participate.
Also happening at 2:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M. are informational tours given by the Hamilton Development Corporation (HDC) on their recently completed Willow Street Flats project that welcomes 18 new multi use units to Willow Street and increases tax revenue to the town in the amount of approximately $60k per year. It’s the first big development project completed by HDC and has taken seven years to complete.
Residents are encouraged to walk or ride bikes to Railroad Avenue. Attendees who are driving can park at the Hamilton Senior Center parking lot or Patton Park parking lot on 1A.
The Fall Festival is sponsored by the Hamilton Development Corporation (HDC) and hosted by Local HW, Hamilton and Wenham’s small business nonprofit. Since LocalHW’s inception in 2019, its mission has been to build awareness of the hundreds of small businesses right here in the community and help them build a network amongst each other and the community at large.
Jan Soolman, Local HW President says, “We always look forward to this festival! It’s a fun event where our community can come together to meet small business owners, learn about what they do, and just enjoy a day of music, good food and drink, and fun. We live in a gorgeous and special place and this is a great day to come together and celebrate our community!”
