One of the signature fall events in the Twin Ports happens Saturday, September 16 as the 33rd annual Fall Fest happens at Chester Bowl.  Between 9:30 AM and 4:30 PM, more than 125 vendors will be on hand with food, produce, collectibles, crafts, music, activities, and more.

There is literally something for all ages at Fall Fest - including the kids;  a special lineup of games and activities await the little ones.

While Fall Fest could be considered a free event, there are suggested donations being taken at the entrance to help support Chester program scholarships for kids in need that would like to participate in the winter skiing and snowboarding program or the summer activities at Chester Bowl.  Suggested donations are $5 a person, $10 a family.  In addition, the Chester Bowl Improvement Club will be selling branded gear to raise funds.  Last year, Fall Fest raised about $7,500 to support the family activities at the park.

There will be a free shuttle to and from the event and attendees are encouraged to make use of it.  Parking is at UMD Lot B, located at the intersection of College Street and University Drive.
