For the past several months the future of Conshohocken Fun Fest has been discussed between the volunteers who have run it historically and the Borough of Conshohocken. Everyone involved felt the best course of action was to take a year off and bring it back bigger and better in 2016.
In the past volunteers raised the money to stage the community day, organized the entire event and donated whatever was left to local charities. Some of the volunteers have been involved for years and due to family and careers needed to reduce their role in the event. There was also a desire to reimagine the event, which could include moving it from its current home in Sutcliffe Park back to its original home on Fayette Street or even the riverfront.
Going the forward the Borough of Conshohocken will take the lead in the event and will be supported by a committee of volunteers. We are told that there will be a meeting in the next couple of weeks to begin the planning for 2016. When we have the details on the meeting we will post a notice so you can get involved if you like.
