Fairfield Harvest Fest & Costumed Dog Parade: Oct. 14, 10am-4pm

Fairfield, Conn. – The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is very happy to announce that its annual fall “Fairfield Harvest Market & Halloween Costume Dog Parade”, will be held on the Old Town Hall Green, (corner of Old Post Road and Beach Road) on Saturday, October 14, from 10am-4pm. 

The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce heralds the start of the fall season by welcoming clothiers, jewelers, artisans and others to the historical Old Town Hall Green to display their products and items to the public. Featuring more than 70+ well-known and unique retail vendors, the Fest will offer shoppers the opportunity to buy an endless array of fun and beautiful items. The inventory will include foods like local honey and BBQ sauce, rustic furniture and Adirondack chairs, jewelry, beauty products, clothing, household items and pet supplies, all ready to purchase on the spot and help jumpstart gift buying for the holidays. The Chamber is also excited to include a few of the very popular Fairfield Farmer’s Market vendors in the lineup. The latter are happy to participate as this is their last weekend in Fairfield to sell some of their wares before the season ends.
