“Since being elected Mayor, I have heard how much the community has wanted the return of a street festival. The Bergenfield District Alliance saw Halloween as a great opportunity to combine the numerous fall events in Bergenfield into one community festival,” says Mayor Schmelz. “The Food Crawl is a great new addition because Bergenfield has a large diversity of food establishments due to its multicultural demographic. We wanted to showcase these businesses and give our community members a chance to experience as many eateries as possible at a reduced rate,” explained Mayor Schmelz. “I’m positive the Food and Fright Festival will be the start of a great yearly event.”

The Bergenfield Food Crawl will highlight the restaurants and businesses of Bergenfield in a promotional guide, the “Bergenfield Food Crawl Passport,” full of $5 specials and discounts from local restaurants and businesses. Patrons will have the opportunity to utilize any of the promotions in their passport and receive a stamp throughout the six-day event. The booklet will also have space to note your food experiences and a tear-out page to mail in the results of your stamp collection. The more stamps you collect in your guide, the more chances you have to win prizes. Bergenfield Food Crawl Passports will be available at local establishments. The list of participating restaurants can be found at gobergenfield.com.
