Fanwood Summer Fan Jam Music Festival

Live rock music, food trucks and classic cars are the theme of the Summer Fan Jam music festival in Fanwood’s LaGrande Park.

Rock out to a diverse lineup of live rock bands with pro stage and sound system while sampling specialty foods from a variety of  food trucks and checking out vintage and classic cars. There’s also a beer and wine garden for adults and a kid zone with an obstacle course & more. Bring a blanket or folding chairs and spend the day!

Plenty of free parking will be available at the South side parking lot at the Fanwood Train Station.  Our beer and wine garden, sponsored by Sheelan’s Crossing, will be open in the afternoon. A vintage and classic car show hosted by Hot Rod Mike will begin at 10 a.m. along Marian Ave, which will be closed to other traffic from 2nd Street to Helen Street. There will also be a KidsZone with obstacle course and other attractions for children to enjoy during the festival.
