Join the Fun at this Year’s “Bedlam in Blairstown” 

Blairstown Fall Festival Coming October 15th at Footbridge Park

The second annual Blairstown Fall Festival is set for Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022 at the historic Footbridge Park from 11 AM to 4 PM, rain or shine. The event features the “Bedlam in Blairstown” Bed Races, a “Pumpkin Pavilion” with kids activities, a beer garden, food trucks, live music, and a craft fair featuring nearly 50 vendors. 

The “Bedlam in Blairstown” events feature both “Race” and “Parade” categories. “Race” entrants form up in teams of five with four pushing and one riding in the bed. The team pushes the bed down a 100-meter course for the fastest time. The bed racing carriages are provided. No construction is necessary. Trophies will be awarded for best times as well as best costumes and best bed theme. Last year’s winning team was “Breakfast in Bed.”

“Parade” entrants decorate floats beds with the most fun and creative design they can think of. Teams only need just enough members to walk their creations along the parade route. Last year’s winner was “Flower Bed” by local flower farmer, Patti Doell of Little Big Farm. See for details on how to sign up for the Bedlam in Blairstown event.

“We would like to thank the Township Committee for supporting the festival as well as the volunteers and sponsors who help make it all possible,” said BEC President Dave Paulson. “It’s events like these that bring a community together to make the memories that can last a lifetime. It’s what makes Blairstown that special place we call home.”
