Fall Open House and HarvestFest to partner for Sept. 28 event

BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (September 9, 2013) – For the first time ever, Bloomfield College and the Bloomfield Center Alliance will partner to co-host their signature fall events, creating a community-wide celebration to usher in the new season.

In conjunction with the 21st-annual Bloomfield HarvestFest, Bloomfield College will hold its annual Fall Open House on Saturday, Sept. 28, interim vice president of institutional advancement Nicole Quinn announced today.

“We are extremely excited to be hosting our annual Fall Open House alongside Bloomfield HarvestFest,” Quinn said of the occasion. “This is a weekend where both the township of Bloomfield and our institution are welcoming patrons into our communities, and showing them the wonderful things we are doing to make an impact. We can’t wait to see everyone around town and on our campus.”

A diverse, four-year private institution located in the heart of Bloomfield, Bloomfield College will welcome prospective students, parents and the community at large to its 11-acre campus for a day filled with events for all ages dubbed “Deacon’s Fest”, including guided campus tours and a women’s volleyball match against Georgian Court University beginning at Noon.

Patrons can also view the second event at Westminster Arts Center – the institution’s on-campus theatre – of the 2013 season, as 4th Wall Theatre presents [title of show], a production chronicling its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival. The show is slated to begin at 8 p.m., with ticket prices ranging from $18.50 for Bloomfield students to $25.50 for adults. Senior Citizen tickets will be priced at $22.50.

“Part of our mission is to prepare students to live in a multicultural society, which is the essence of Bloomfield’s HarvestFest,” the College’s President, Richard Levao, said of the partnership. “We have been an integral part of the township’s history for nearly 150 years, and we look forward to future growth and cooperation with Bloomfield through enhanced programming and supportive development.”
