2017 OLE TOWNE FESTIVAL & SUNDAY SOIREE
We are celebrating 30 years of heritage at the annual Phillipsburg Ole Towne Festival in Phillipsburg, NJ! The event will take place at Walters Park for Friday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 24th and will feature fresh activities and entertainment for attendees. The 2017 Ole Towne Festival begins on Friday, June 23rd at 5PM with a “kick off” event featuring bands, children’s attractions, local vendors, and a beer garden for attendees’ dining enjoyment.
Saturday, June 24th will offer extended hours at Walter’s Park with even more entertainment for the family, more bands to satisfy all musical preferences on two stages, and many other exciting additions. Expect to see children’s activities and entertainment, a hot dog eating contest sponsored by Jimmy’s Doggie Stand, carnival rides, free hot air balloon rides, and more. Best of all, we are excited to announce that the brand-new Splash Pad at Walters Park Pool will have its big debut with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:00pm! The pool will be free to the public all day to admire and enjoy this state-of-the-art structure that rivals mega amusement parks. Of course, Saturday evening will conclude with a much-anticipated fireworks display at 9:30pm.
If you would like to volunteer for the Ole Towne Festival Committee, please contact Laurie Colvin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
