Town of Hamden events

Be Part of HamdenFest!

HamdenFest - Saturday, June 8, 2024 (rain date Sunday, June 9, 2024)
Hamden Town Center Park    11:00 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Hamden Chamber of Commerce Business EXPO and Arts, Crafts and Civic Fair featuring HYSB Kid Zone

The HamdenFest will consist of a 10K, 5K Road Race and Kids Bike Rodeo, Live Music and Entertainment, Library Book Sale, Food Trucks, and KID ZONE featuring many kid’s activities and resources and giveaways for families

The Kid Zone Committee is currently soliciting vendors and non-profit groups for participation in the fair. Selection of participants will occur on a first-come, first-served basis as space is limited.

All exhibitors will be expected to provide an interactive activity, giveaway or a demonstration. This is an “action-oriented” fair and we do not want to just hand out literature and advertisements. We want to engage families in active learning that will provide them with tools and activities that promote wellness.

If you are interested in participating in the HamdenFest Kid Zone please complete the application below and return it to the Hamden Youth Services Bureau by May 3rd. Please note that late applications may not be accepted and will not be included in promotional materials. The suggested donation for participation for vendors/businesses is $50.00 and $10.00 for non-profits (cash or check made out to Hamden Youth Services Gift Fund).
