The Wilton Chamber of Commerce’s Street Fair and Summer Sidewalk Sale returns for a fourth year on Saturday, July 18.
“This is kind of our summer festival,” said Chamber of Commerce Director Janeen Leppert. “We close down Old Ridgefield Road and have booths lined up with businesses, artisans and restaurants promoting themselves, and a lot of retailers selling things.”
The annual showcase of businesses and organizations, sponsored by Fairfield County Bank, will take place in Wilton Center from 10 to 4, along with Wilton Library’s Summer Book Sale. All proceeds from the book sale will benefit the library.
Leppert said the Wilton Street Fair and Sidewalk Sale is a rain-or-shine event.
“We encourage participants to bring 10-by-10 pop-up tents,” she said, “which also help with high heat.”
The event is designed to showcase the Wilton community as a “vibrant retail, service and dining destination,” according to the Chamber of Commerce, and will feature live performances by Black Tie Quartet and Uncle Zac’s.
There will also be numerous activities and live demonstrations from JoyRide Wilton, Norwalk River Rowing Association and Karate Universe centered around the Wilton Town Green gazebo.
Children’s activities will include a live petting zoo, a magician, balloon characters from Mr. Bungles and carnival games.
“It’s a fun day with something for everyone in the family,” said Leppert, “and it’s a great way for the community to come together.”
