“I always bring my family to the May Fair because it’s such a great environment for them to involved in,” said Montclair resident Leslie Holts. “It’s sort of a tradition we’ve had to come here every year and I can’t see the tradition ending.”      

The May Fair is a part of the May In Montclair calendar, which “is a celebration of the physical beauty and the indomitable community spirit of Montclair.” May In Montclair is a month-long array of garden tours, fairs, markets, art shows, concerts and other events planned throughout the month of May for the community of Montclair to enjoy.

“I’ve been living here for over 10 years now and I’ve never loved a town more than this one,” said Montclair resident, Yvette Mangers. “The people, the places, the events and everything that this town has going on is like no other.”
