The McLean Avenue Merchant’s Association is a non-profit collection of 47 small businesses* in South East Yonkers. Founded in 2011, the group promotes commerce and camaraderie in the neighborhood. Hosting events like Christmas tree lightings and community socials, this year marks the 9th occasion of its annual Fall Festival. Moreover, this afternoon filled with food and fun has proven to revitalize the local business district year-round.

Food, Music, and Fun

And to wash those sweet, salty, fried, or grill-fired treats down will be plenty of beer. Local, domestic, and international brewers will all be represented throughout the many famous Irish Pubs dotted along the Avenue.
And next to one of these famous Pubs, Rory Dolan’s, will be a full mini-carnival for the children. Activities for kids like bouncy houses and games promise to keep your children entertained and build lasting memories.
Once in a festive mood, over 10 acts of music will keep the beat as you dance down the path. Everything from traditional Irish music, to DJ’s, to live cover bands like Solara, represent the diverse culture of this district.
