The East Palestine Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Norfolk Southern Railroad to bring the annual street fair back to the village later this month.

The railroad, which has been trying to show goodwill to the community since the February 3rd derailment, is teaming up with the chamber to put on the four-day event from Wednesday, May 24 through Sunday, May 27, 2023.

Fairgoers can enjoy the amusement rides and attractions free of charge according to the chamber. People will still have to pay for games and food.

With a history going back to 1887, the main drag of the village will be filled with vendors, concessions, rides, and a stage with live music through Saturday night.

Street Fair hours:

  • Wednesday, May 24, 2022, 5 to 10 pm
  • Thursday, May 25, 2022, 5 to 10 pm
  • Friday, May 26, 2022, 5 to 11 pm
  • Saturday, May 27, 2922, 1 to 11 p.m.
