Margate Fall FunFest 2021
Locals love the Fall FunFest. Thousands of people attend every year. That made it so much more heartbreaking when it was canceled last year. Fortunately, the FunFest returns to Margate this fall. The new Baywalk Boardwalk allows you to enjoy the gorgeous ocean views while you browse more than 125 vendor booths. Listen to live music. Play fun games. Take a nature tour. Nibble on delicious food. And cheer on the competitors in the cornhole tournament on Saturday. Steve & Cookie’s Dog Show takes place on Sunday, the 26th.
Free parking will be made available along Ventnor and Amherst for the Margate Fall FunFest. Also, park for free at the Eugene Tighe School. Then, look for the FREE FUNFEST JITNEY sign that takes you right to where the fun happens.
Margate Scarefest After Dark
Hire a babysitter for the kiddos. Scarefest lets the 21 and over crowd enjoy a night of entertainment geared specifically for them. Starting at 7:30 pm, the Margate Pier becomes Scarefest central. The Mas Tequila Orchestra performs live while guests partake in a wine and spirits tasting. Dress up in your best costume for the evening. Extra points for the most disgusting costume of the night. Tickets cost $25 at the door. The Margate Business Association donates a portion of the proceeds to local charities.
