24th Annual AutumnFest 2012


On Saturday, September 29, from 10-4, the 24th Annual AutumnFest 2012 will be held on the campus of Bridgewater State University on the Boyden Hall Quad. AutumnFest is a longstanding tradition in Bridgewater. This event is organized and run exclusively by the Bridgewater Business Association with the help of the Bridgewater State University - Office of University and Community Partnerships and 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 our business expo, 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, live demonstrations and activities, train rides, moon bounce, Barn Babies Traveling Petting Zoo, the Bridgewater Fire Department smoke house, Bridgewater Police Department K-9 demo, Poppee the Clown, child ID digital photo and fingerprinting (with the Fellowship Lodge A.F. & A.M.), Dance Theater of New England's ballet "Little Red Riding Hood", Magic performed by Dennis Blanchard of Eventful Magic, Precision Tang Soo Do karate demonstration, Bridgewater Antiphonal Brass Society, Joe's Crazzy Critters, Hanson Children's Museum, Stardust Gym, ..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 2005, the BBA has donated over $75,000 and helped more than 300 Bridgewater residents. By supporting AutumnFest 2012, 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.
