Barrington Harvest Festival set for Oct. 12 — lend a hand if you can

A new group of volunteers has stepped in to help run Barrington’s  Harvest Festival this year — but more volunteers still are needed for the event that draws thousands of people to the borough each fall.

Barrington Harvest Festival 2012Craft and food vendors should call 856-761-4482 or email Individuals  who can work a one-hour shift on the day of the festival also may use the above email and phone number to contact event organizers.


Organizers are expecting more than 200 vendors, along with the traditional beer and food garden at the fire house, classic car show, kids section with petting zoo and bouncy rides, Barrington’s Got Talent showcase and the basket auction.

The BBQ cookoff will not be part of the festival again this year, according to a report in the current issue of Barrington’s On Track.

“It will be missing again this year,” the report states. “We need some volunteers to run the cookoff, but we hope to get some interested folks and have it return next year in all its glory.”


The Barrington Harvest Festival is a wonderful tradition. As a relative newcomer to the borough (moved in in 2004), I was amazed at the size and scope of the event.

And one of my favorite aspects was the BBQ Cookoff. It’s what set our event apart from those taking place in Collingswood and Haddonfield.

With that in mind, I’ve reached out to the Harvest Festival planners at the email address above asking what can be done to bring this unique event back to the festival. I ask other interested parties to join me in working to keep this tremendous public gathering successful.
