Vining St PARTY on the Plaza Changes Direction

For 10 years Vining St PARTY on the PLAZA-VS PoP entertained Fernwoodians on the second Sunday in September.

Children and  parents alike loved dancing and singing to live entertainment, indulging in fun and games, a community BBQ, browsing the MARKET and of course bidding on 400 auction items.

Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, participants, donors, and sponsors VS PoP raised $70,000 for a variety of community organizations. We salute our organizers! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Last year VS PoP donated $10,000 to the LDABC Learning Curve in support of children and families so that their diverse learning needs can be met.

This year Vining St PARTY (VSP) is changing direction.  Vining St PARTY on the PLAZA will be on sabbatical.

VSP instead will focus on advocating and spearheading community improvement projects.

 If you or your group want to be part of this please contact Laurie or Mary Jane at

Following the success of lighting on the exterior and storefronts of the Fernwood Community Association building at 1923 Fernwood Rd, future projects may involve:

  • Revitalization of Fernwood Square
  • Child’s Play- a portable marine themed 16’ x 24’ playground

It is up to you. We would love to hear from you at
