Street Fair 11:00am-7:00pm
Nightlife 7:00pm-11:00pm

Chatham Summerfest 2019 was more spectacular than ever this year as we kicked off the 150th Celebration of the incorporation of the Village. There were two stages with music and entertainment, food trucks, activities for kids, a Farmer’s Market, artisan vendors, WDST radio, a special commemorative beer from Chatham Brewing, and more including plenty of activities for children including face painting and train rides. Chatham is proud of its railroad heritage with a restored station and trains that rumble through the village daily. An authentic reproduction train offered rides to children and adults.
