For the second consecutive year, Malden’s Downtown has been transformed into a fun party atmosphere through a series of Sumer Festivals geared towards promoting the area, its businesses and restaurants to residents and new and returning customers. Sponsored by the Office of Mayor Gary Christenson with support from the Malden Chamber of Commerce, the festivals draw large crowds who are looking for a chance to hear a variety of music, opportunities to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods and meats at the ever-growing Farmer’s Market, and a shopping bazaar lined with vintage clothes vendors, jewelry makers and other artisans.
The Festivals celebrate Malden’s business community as it continues to rebound from the effects of the devastating Covid-19 pandemic. Malden Strategy and Business Development Officer Kevin Duffy has organized this successful series of events that has brought thousands of visitors to the downtown over the past two years.
The final Summer Festival for 2022 will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13 from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, visit CityofMalden.org/Summer Festivals.
