Six Blocks of Nothin' But Fun!

Celebrate the start of fall with two full days of amusements, entertainment, crafts and food. Free admission Saturday, September 26 from 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM and Sunday, September 27 from 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM.

Fall Funfest stretches along Amherst Avenue between Decatur and Coolidge Avenues. A free jitney will be operating along Amherst Avenue. Wave your hand to jump aboard or head to the Tighe School (Essex and Amherst Avenue) or to the drop off area at the corner of Coolidge and Decatur Avenues.


Rest up, we have a big party planned!

Stretching 6-blocks along Amherst Avenue, Fall Funfest will feature amusements rides, back bay boat tours, and Ray Scott Dock's "Wetland Wonderland" marine educational exhibit. There will be sand art, a claystation, and face painting by Alissa Dirato. And bring your pitching arm because the Margate City Police Department is back with their Dunk-a-Cop tank! Meet the Phillie Phanatic Saturday from 12PM - 1PM and stay to rub elbows with Miss New Jersey, Lindsey Gianni from 1PM - 3PM.
