AddamsFest is Coming to Westfield October 26-28

It's creepy and it's kooky. It's taking over Westfield for 3 days from October 26 to 28, 2018. AddamsFest, a town-wide celebration honoring Westfield NJ native Charles Addams and his penchant for the macabre, will prove to be the destination event of the season with family-friendly events, lectures, exhibits, and film screenings.

Born in 1912 and raised in Westfield, Charles Addams was one of the country's premier cartoonists, with his work prominently featured in The New Yorker. His most successful creation, The Addams Family, was inspired by his surroundings in Westfield. The characters that began as illustrations grew into a television series, a live action movie franchise, a Broadway musical, and a highly anticipated Addams Family animated movie (coming in late 2019). What better place to honor Addams' talent and creativity than the town where he grew up?
