Reading Fall Street Faire update

The Reading Fall Street Faire is slated for Sunday, September 11, from 12 – 5PM.  An opening ceremony will commemorate the 15th Anniversary of September 11th with bagpipes and drums played by Irish American Police Officers Association along with the honor guard.  “The Committee is hard at work to plan another successful community event,” Fall Street Faire Committee Chair, Brian Snell, commented. “The Fall Street Faire is our way to kick off the fall and showcase downtown Reading.” This event usually boasts large crowds and is family friendly, with many activities that are free or low cost.

This year’s event will feature two stages, live entertainment, music, food and food trucks and unique vendors. Children can enjoy inflatable structures, activities, and a “touch a truck” area where families can explore trucks and construction equipment, and more.

The day will begin with Reading’s “Green” 5K sponsored by PureFit of Reading. The Fall Street 5K is a community-based road race open to both children and adults. Registration for the race will open in July. A pre-race warm up will be offered by PureFit Reading Staff. The race will be held in the morning on September 11 in advance of the Fall Street Faire, and will begin and end at Washington Street Park, located at 100 Washington Street, Reading. An awards ceremony will be held at the park immediately following the race.

This Fall Street Faire is run almost entirely by dedicated volunteers; additional volunteer and support both in the planning and during the event is welcome. Volunteer sign ups may also be found on the event website or by emailing
