The Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce will host its Fourth Annual Nanuet Street Fair on Sunday, June 4 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Main Street. The event has quickly become one of the most popular in Rockland County and has attracted more than 15,000 people. Parking and admission are free.
This year there will be several new attractions. In addition to the wide selection of rides for kids, the Nanuet Street Fair will feature old fashioned games with participants competing against local politicians including Rockland County Executive Ed Day and Clarkstown Town Supervisor George Hoehmann and their families. The family games will support the Nanuet Schools Family Resource Center and CANDLE who will be on hand to coordinate three-legged races, egg and spoon relays, potato sack races, and a giant Simon Says game. The music and announcements from the main stage will also be pumped throughout the fair this year to ensure that everyone knows what’s going on from one end to the other.
“We try to do something unique each time which is why we only host one Street Fair each year. We want it to be an event to remember and the family games are a great way to harken back to the days of the Memorial Day parades and fairs that were held in Nanuet back in the 70s” stated Risa Hoag, President of the Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce. The family games will take place from 1 – 3pm and people can register at the Chamber booth on Market Street.
