Hampden Heritage at Hampdenfest 2014
September 20, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pmFree
Join the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance at Hampdenfest 2014 where they will be sharing information about their new self-guided historic tour brochure for Hampden-area neighborhoods.
A new self-guided tour brochure (including five distinct walking tours and 35 locations!) will welcome visitors to Hampden by telling the story of the area’s beginning as a collection of mill villages up through the story of the community today. Hampden’s history is very important to our community and our goal is to provide an engaging and accessible way to share it!
HampdenFest began as a local community event organized by the Hampden Village Merchants Association and the Hampden Community Council, but in recent years has evolved into a neighborhood arts festival that draws visitors, as well as local residents, to enjoy the community of merchants on and around West 36th Street. Co-sponsored by the Hampden Village Merchants Association and the Hampden Community Council, and with the continuing support of The Hampden Family Center, HampdenFest features 4 stages of music and art performances, an activity area for kids, an emerging artists exhibit and a film festival, as well as four blocks of arts and crafts vendors and other wares from a wide range of merchants and artists.
