Community Fest


Community Fest is made possible by the very generous support of community businesses. Many thanks to all who are supporting the fest in 2019!

Ewing Township, the Ewing Public Schools and The College of New Jersey proudly invite you to enjoy our fall tradition and gather on TCNJ’s campus to enjoy a day filled with local vendors, crafters, civic organizations, delicious food, family amusements, and of course, each other.

The information that follows is from the 2019 Community Fest.  Look for information and registration forms for vendors for the 2020 Community Fest in the spring.


Community Fest is an annual community celebration hosted by Ewing Township, the Ewing Public Schools and The College of New Jersey in early fall where residents come together for a celebration of community and fun.   The event is free and open to the public!

​In addition to browsing the vendors, Community Fest offers complimentary entertainment throughout the day.  Family-friendly amusements include inflatables, music, and performances by local school groups.

Directions on Campus: From the entrance on Rte. 31, bear right. Ewing Community Fest will be located at the green across from Campus Town and adjacent to parking lots 3 & 4.
