And I shall love to listen to
the wind in the wheat …”

Visitors to the 29th Belvidere Victorian Days enjoy listening to The Antebellum Marine Band in Garret D. Wall Park in front of United Presbyterian Church on a beautiful waning summer afternoon in Belvidere, New Jersey.
Victorian Days, held the weekend after Labor Day, is a celebration of Belvidere’s Victorian heritage. Festivities include live entertainment; antique, craft and food vendors; antique/vintage car show; and Victorian era demonstrations.
Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers. Victorian Days is a perfect time to stroll through the town and step back into a bygone era.
