Piazza Renton FALL Festival 2010

We hope that you can join us for the 2010 Renton FALL Festival! DEADLINE EXTENDED to September  17th!

The Fall Festival event will take place on Saturday, October 9, 2010 from 10 am to 4 pm with set-up starting at 8:00 a.m. The event is located at the Piazza Renton park in Downtown Renton on South 3rd between Logan and Burnett Ave s (near the Metro transit Terminal).

Piazza Renton has become well known for its activities and events in downtown Renton. If you’ve ever attended our Farmer’s Market, held in the same space, you’ll know that each week the market is very well attended. While our Fall Festival is smaller than that, it is a popular event! The Chamber of Commerce holds their annual business expo—at the same time, but inside the pavilion, which draws a larger crowd.

For more information and to get an application contact: Susan at 425-652-1259 or scbressler@comcast.net (email preferred) or Linda at 206-772-4010.
