About Newark PorchFest
Newark PorchFest is a free, family-friendly celebration of the arts hosted in the beloved
Forest Hill Historic District of Newark, NJ.
Over 100 musical, visual, and spoken word artists use 30+ 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.
Newark PorchFest is an annual event proudly produced by the Forest Hill Community Association. The event is organized by a committee of volunteers and funded by generous sponsors. A charitable event, all event proceeds are contributed to local arts organizations. 2022's beneficiary is the New Jersey Symphony, who in 2022 are celebrating their centennial anniversary.
Please join us on Saturday, September 24 for Newark PorchFest 2022! (Rain date Sunday, September 25.)
We look forward to seeing you there!
