Chatham OctoberFeast 2018

This Saturday, October 6, 11:00am-6:00pm

Events and activities will feature great local food and talent! Main Street will be closed to traffic and picnic tables will be set up. Enjoy all your favorite fall foods from our local restaurants, as well as outside food vendors and food trucks. There will be two stages of entertainment and WDST will be doing a live broadcast. KIDS! There are plenty of free activities including fall-themed crafts, pumpkin painting, and a giant slide by the gazebo. Bimi’s will have large games set up on the street in front of their store: Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4 and Cheese Toss.


The Chatham Silent Food Pantry and the Food Pantry of the Town of Ghent will be accepting donations of non-perishable foods. (Cash and checks are also appreciated.) Not sure what food to donate? The pantries suggest non-perishable food items to get kids off to a healthy start to school: whole grain cereal, snack bars, applesauce, fruit cups, raisins, pretzels, peanut butter, jelly, and popcorn.

See our gallery of photos from the 2017 event.
