New Hope & Lambertville Named Best Hippie Towns in their States

Lambertville - 16 of 16Thrillist recently named the most hippie towns in each state, and it’s no surprise that two bohemian Main Streets in our backyard hit this list- New Hope (PA) and Lambertville (NJ).
Thrillist calls Lambertville, “The gently rolling rural area…scattered with hippie ex-New Yorkers who escaped the city,” and credits drum circles, Big Bear Natural Foods, and yoga as core hippy hot spots.
New Hope - 23 of 82Then, it’s New Hope’s turn. Thrillist descibes, “For a town of 2,500 there’s an embarrassing wealth of vintage thrift shops, art festivals, music shops, head shops, and a thriving local theater scene that has produced more than a few Broadway superstars. Its LGBTQ community may have taken center stage in recent years, but the true heart of New Hope lies in its flower-power roots. While New Hope abuts the Land of Springsteen, it’s decidedly more Jerry Garcia than Jersey.”

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.
