St James Square will be alive with pop-up stalls, tasty food and drink, competitive events, a treasure hunt, games, and stalls manned by local organisations and charities.
There will be music, dancers, and even a fashion show at the June event.
At St James Church, there will be facepainters, a bouncy castle, bands, gymnastics, choirs and an art exhibition.
This year’s event has been put on by Friends of St James Square, a group of local ladies - and a token gent.
Organiser Deanna Bogdanovic said: “Following on from the success of last year’s event, we want to show that the Muswell Hill community spirit is stronger than ever.

Organiser Mel Pretorius added: “With our strong team of voluntesers we are hoping to bring more events to St James’s Square, making it a Muswell Hill hub for arts, traders and families.”
