2014 Proposed Street Events

Street Events are programs designed to increase foot traffic through Tenafly.

Street Fairs – We have contracted for two street fairs this year to raise money for the Chamber – May 3 & 4 and Oct 18 & 19. Discounted booths are available for members. We expect final Boro approval March 6.

Special Sale Dales – Sidewalk sales, special deals & community co-sponsored events
We have permits for ALL merchants to run sidewalk sales on our Special Sales Dates (Fri & Sat – generally the last weekend of the month). We will be advertising events downtown hosted by community groups on these days and Chamber member special events such as author visits or Tenafly History Tours. If a limited number of dates correspond to the times you would like to offer your best sales, please let us know in comments. Please feel free to suggest non-profits we can work with – the more people trying to attract people to the downtown the more exciting it will be.

April 25 & 26 – Tenafly Earth Day
May 30 & 31
June 27 & 28
Sept 19 & 20 Tenafly Treasures Sales
Oct 24 & 25

July Store Window Painting – The Chamber will work with the Tenafly Rec Department to get windows designed and painted by Tenafly Summer Rec Camp participants (elementary & middle school children.) Participation will require a section of a display window that can be painted from ground level and a willingness to clean acrylic paints off the window in August. (It will require soaking the paint & scraping off with a sharp edge but it is not supposed to be too difficult.) It may be possible to select the design for your window.

Tenafly Treasures Sales – Sept 19-21 Town-wide garage & table sales. Participants get their fee back in Chamber Bucks.
