Celebrate fall as one of Haddonfield’s most popular events combines with the borough’s 300th anniversary during the Haddonfield Tricentennial Fall Festival and Craft Show on Saturday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The daylong Fall Festival will feature crafters along Kings Highway and Tanner Street including florals, seasonal items, glass, wool, pottery, clothing and other handcrafted items. Scarecrow making and live entertainment will also take place throughout the day.

New this year, the Haddonfield Friends of the Library and the Little Shop will display quilts of all ages, sizes and styles on clotheslines at Library Point from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
During this year’s festival, there will be a 10th Anniversary party for Haddy where the winner of the Flat Haddy contest will be announced. Also, in celebration of Haddonfield’s 300th anniversary, there will be a Tricentennial Salute in Kings Court.
Indian King Tavern will be open for tours from 1 to 4 p.m., and at 2 p.m. a program featuring first-person interpreter Timothy Matlack, a Haddonfield native, who penned the official version of the Declaration of Independence. Admission is free but seating for the program is limited.
