About Newark PorchFest

Newark PorchFest is a free, family-friendly celebration of the arts hosted annually in the beloved Forest Hill Historic District of Newark, NJ. 

Musical, visual, and spoken word artists use  neighborhood porches, stoops, and lawns to showcase their talents. Artists range from amateur to professional and represent a diverse range of genres and artistic styles.

Attendees walk, take complementary shuttles, ride bikes or scooters, or push strollers as they move from one porch to another throughout the neighborhood to partake in the festivities.

A wide range of food trucks offer refreshments throughout the day, and dedicated children's activities keep the little ones entertained and educated in the arts.
