The Westcott Street Cultural Fair 2019


The Westcott Street Cultural Fair is an annual celebration of the diversity and uniqueness of the Westcott neighborhood through its culture, arts, food, organizations and activities for families and students. The fair attracts thousands of people to the Westcott Business District for a September day filled with great sounds, sights, tastes and more.

Now in its 28th year, the Westcott Street Cultural Fair is a neighborhood tradition and a statement of neighborhood pride. We invite the CNY community to visit us and see that it is a great place to live, work, shop and play.

The Westcott Street Cultural Fair receives donations from the community. In 2018, more than 40 business, governmental, organizational and institutional groups provided cash and in-kind donations to the Westcott Fair.

Parking

You may park in the streets in the vicinity of the fair. Pay close attention to even/odd parking sides — This will be an “even” parking day. You may also park in a Thornden Park parking lot. Parking rules are very strictly enforced in the neighborhood on the day of the fair!

Important Note: The fair cannot offer designated accessible parking this year due to repaving work on the community parking lot.

Visitors needing close access to the fair area may be dropped off or picked up at the south end barricade on Westcott St. at Concord Place.
