2011 AutumnFest Next Weekend



On Saturday, September 24, from 10-4, the 23rd Annual Autumnfest 2011 will be held on the campus of Bridgewater State University on the Boyden Hall Quad. AutumnFest is a longstanding tradition in the Town of Bridgewater, MA, and it is presented by the Bridgewater Business Association (BBA) with the help of the Bridgewater business community. Come enjoy the day with your family, friends and neighbors of the community. Visit www.autumnfest.net for more information.

Bring the whole family for a fun day filled with crafts, games, food, and music. It is attended annually by over 5000 people.

This great family day includes sampling the wonderful products and services our BBA members have to offer, delicious food and treats from local eateries, music, crafts and face painting, game court, live demonstrations and activities, train rides, moon bounce, live animal petting zoo, the Bridgewater Fire Department smoke house, Bridgewater Police Department K-9 demo, child ID digital photo and fingerprinting (with the Fellowship Lodge A.F. & A.M.), Bridgewater Farmer's Market, ...and much, much more! Admission is free.


Select activities the day of the event do cost money to participate. There is parking around the BSU campus and the event is within walking distance from the center of town.

The money raised by the BBA through our annual events support Town of Bridgewater charities which assists resident families in Bridgewater throughout the year. These funds become especially important during the holidays and winter heating season. Since 2006, the BBA has donated over $60,000 and helped more than 300 Bridgewater residents. By supporting AutumnFest 2011, the BBA can continue to raise funds for the community during these tough economic times.

If you are unable to volunteer or attend, but would still like to help the BBA, donations are always appreciated. There are numerous costs that go into producing a large event like AutumnFest. As they are a non-profit organization and this is their biggest fundraiser of the year, they would welcome any and all donations.

This event is held rain or shine. In case of bad weather, the event will be held in the BSU Ballroom, Campus Center.
