Ole Towne Festival – Important update


Attention all P’burg-ians!  We have exciting news to share!  In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the Ole Towne Festival, the scheduled events will take place at Walters Park for Friday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 24th! Mayor Ellis heard your voices and, with the support of our Committee, has decided to kick it up a notch in the beautiful Walters Park one last time.  Live bands will play around the clock, local food vendors will promote their goods, rides and attractions will be available for the kiddos, and there will even be a Beer Garden for the adults to enjoy! Best of all, we are excited to announce that the much-anticipated splash pad at Walters Park Pool will have its big debut with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12PM on Saturday!  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.  The ultimate fireworks show will light up the sky at 9:30PMSaturday. On Sunday, June 25th, the“Sunday Soiree at Riverside Drive” will take place from 4-8PM at Riverside Drive Park. This will be the official closing ceremony of the Ole Towne Festival and will feature a live band, an outdoor movie theatre, beer garden, and FOOD TRUCKS!

While the festival will move to Riverside Drive next year, the Committee is working hard to go out with a bang this year in the park. So please mark your calendar, come show your support of our town, and help us say farewell to the Ole Towne Festival as we’ve known it and HELLO:) to all that is good to come in the future for Phillipsburg!
