The event is sponsored by the Clifton Veteran’s Committee and Clifton Arts Council. Proceeds will benefit the Clifton’s Veteran’s Parade and Art in the Park programs.
Once you’ve paid your entrance fees, there will be a variety of food truck options from which to purchase some delicious treats. Adult beverages will be available, including both domestic and craft beers (bring your ID!). Children’s options are of course available and families are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for a day of eating, dancing, and shopping.
The following food trucks are scheduled to serve:
Angry Archie’s – Lobster rolls, crab cake sandwiches, lobster mac & cheese and more!

What celebration is complete without music, shopping, and dancing? There will be a large variety of vendors with arts and crafts for purchase, kid-friendly entertainment and activities, and some great live bands that will have you grabbing your partner for some lively dancing – after all, you’ll have to burn off all those calories! Performers include La Cabinera, Alternate Groove, and of course, Swingman and the Misfit Mutts.
