Volunteers needed for Barrington Harvest Festival

The 15th annual Barrington Harvest Festival is less than a month away, and event planners still are seeking volunteers to help with the event that draws thousands to the borough every October.

More than 200 vendors are expected for the fall fest offering various food, crafts and merchandise along with information about local organizations. The festival will include many of its standards, including:

  • The basket auction. The Civic Association is planning a bigger auction than ever.
  • The beer and food garden at the fire station, 2nd and Haines, from noon to 8 p.m.
  • The classic car show, including prizes in several categories. Call Jeff Fultano at (609) 929-7596 for details.
  • A children’s area at 2nd and Trenton including inflatable rides, petting zoo, hayride, pony rides and more.
  • The “Barrington’s Got Talent” showcase, including cash prizes for winners. Anyone may enter and will have three minutes to demonstrate their skills. Those interested in participating will be auditioned ahead of time, so interested parties must send: names/ages of participants, type of presentation, song title (if applicable), length of presentation and contact information to

The BBQ cookoff that has been part of the festival in recent years will not be included in this year’s festival, but organizers hope it will return next year.

If you’re a craft or food vendor who wants to take part, call (856) 761-4482 or email
