The skies over Lambertville and New Hope will again explode with color this summer as the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau secured approvals for the return of the popular fireworks program.
These hugely popular displays are returning to Lambertville & New Hope, shining a light on our many fine stores, restaurants and entertainment venues of the Delaware River Towns.

The fireworks will coincide with the Chamber’s popular “First Fridays” program, featuring special promotions and events from dozens of galleries, boutiques, and restaurants on both sides of the Delaware River.
From 5pm to 9pm on the first Friday of each month, over a dozen galleries from both Lambertville, NJ and New Hope, PA will be participating in what the organizers hope will become one of of the most robust cultural events in the country. You can also expect live music and special offers at area bars and restaurants.
Each 10-minute fireworks display costs approximately $11,000 including fireworks, insurance, and public safety. The Chamber is securing significant sponsorships to help defray these costs, however, they are asking all who enjoy the displays to similarly play a role.

The Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau is sponsoring the Summer 2017 Fireworks program. To help support the fireworks program, the Chamber will host the 2017 Summer Fireworks Fundraiser on Friday, May 12, 2017. You can also support the fireworks online here.
Local businesses are encouraged to sign up to share public information about any special offerings or events that will coincide with 1st Friday here.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

 
As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Toberfest. This decision was not made lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now.
 
The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding.
 
There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
