The Mt Laurel Spring Festival, which saw an estimated 6,000 visitors last year, will be returning April 8.
Spring has sprung, and with it, the Mt Laurel Spring Festival.
Celebrating its 16th year, Town of Mt Laurel marketing and community relations manager Julianna Vance said the festival has grown each year and estimated more than 6,000 in attendance last year. Located in the Mt Laurel Town Center, it has since expanded along Olmsted Street down to Olmsted Park and the playground, she added.
This year, the festival will have more than 200 vendors with tables for produce, jewelry, clothing, home décor, toys, gifts and artwork.
“We have some vendors from Huntsville and Montgomery, but most are local,” Vance said. The festival also will have a variety of food options including Jim ’N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, Cantina on Wheels and Urban Pops, as well as live music from local bands such as Goodfellows jazz duo, Steve Wingo and Melanie Rogers, Andrew Tufano and Fiddlers in the Park.
During the festival, Olmsted Park will hold an expanded Kid’s Park area, complete with a petting zoo, face painting, inflatables and rides.
“I would encourage visitors to take their time and stroll the entire festival,” Vance said. “The Mt Laurel Spring Festival not only showcases the beautiful streets and fantastic shops and restaurants … but also local artisans and farmers. It’s about celebrating community and giving families a fun day out.”
The Mt Laurel Spring Festival is April 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, go to mtlaurel.com.
