With the Balloon Race growing every year, changes must be made. This year's parade will be ending at the American Legion. In years past, we have gone thru the park, but with the amount of participants and attendees, we are not able to have the parade thru the park. We are excited to still be able to travel up to the park thanks to the help of the New Haven police department. You can download the parade route here:
Firefest planning is well underway - and the date is coming up quickly (Nov 5!!!). We are now accepting applications for food and vendors. We are also looking for new and exciting demonstrators and exhibits. Year-after-year we hear that vendors consistently sell out. If you are interested in becoming a vendor or demonstrator, please contact Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Firefest page here.
Firefest is celebrating it's 9th event in Downtown New haven. The primary source of funding is from sponsorships. Please consider becoming a sponsor. More information available here.
Last year saw over 5,000 people in downtown New haven. We are currently looking for civic groups to assist in parking. If interested and for more details, please contact the director.
